Captivating yet confusing fairy tale

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Monsters and Legends is a twist ona classic fariy tale about a princess who is kidnapped by a monster but the monster ends up liking, not eating the princess.The story is 45 minutes long and full of characters in different voices. It was very hard to keep track of the story. I woudd have preferred a longer story with more time spent introducing each character, so that their stories didn't run all over each other.

Would you be willing to try another book from Andy Bunch? Why or why not?

No, just not my style.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I think the narrator did a fair job with the story length's limits. Again, the cahracters ran into each other and the nararator didn't distinguish voices well enough.

Was Monsters and Legends worth the listening time?

No, too confusing.
