Too short To consider

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

It should have been presented with additional materials
Maybe it would be enjoyed more in a visual format

What was most disappointing about D. C. Morehouse’s story?

It was only 4 lines long

What does Vanessa MacDonald bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

While i appreciate her voice, I don't think it made the experience more enjoyable

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I actually liked the music.

Any additional comments?

I am afraid I was disappointed overall

4-line poem?

this was advertised as a short story, in its entirely. it was not supposed to be as a free sample. this product is mostly music accompaniment for the majority of the 3 minutes, interrupted with 4 lines of verse only. 4 lines of verse doe snot a short story make.

Only music

This was only played 2 minutes of pixilated music for me, not the best intro to Audible.

There's an Elephant with a Castle on His Head.

... and a pigeon.

There, you heard it!

There's nothing else to say about this. Don't bother having it take up space in your library.

Not much to it.

There was a bit of "music" (just some single notes of bells) and I thought it was over. Then a couple of lines and the bells again.
