Awful rendition

This rendition of one of the great British short stories falls way short of the mark. The narrator, in his telling, does not even try to distinguish between the voices of the four characters and this is exacerbated by the fact that he is clearly not British. He somehow manages to make a powerful suspense / horror story boring.
