Not the best so far

The narrator had problems with accents, which took away some of the fantasy for me

TEASE

Oh man this bit by bit stuff is driving me nuts! I need a new book with lots of chapter that is like a thirty hour listen. I love these little stories but it's like breaking the corner off a chocolate bar and saying you can have more later :-p
