Disappointing

What did you like best about A 'Shadow' Audio Double-Feature, Starring Orson Welles, Volume 1? What did you like least?

The story was great, a Shadow best. The speaker explaining the history of The Shadow was interesting but was too much. I wanted to listen to the stories, not people talking about the stories.

What did you like best about this story?

See above.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Too much introduction.

Do you think A 'Shadow' Audio Double-Feature, Starring Orson Welles, Volume 1 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No, not if the narrator is going to speak as much.

Any additional comments?

Story yes, narration no.

A little bit of nostalgia

Found the commentary on the history behind The Shadow series interesting. Nice to listen to an episode but would struggle to listen to much more.
