Unlistenable narration

I love Saki's stories but couldn't listen to these. The narration is awful and renders them completely unlistenable. Luckily, as an Audible customer, this cost one credit - don't know how I'd feel if I'd paid over £30 for it. I'd advise all to avoid this product.

Ruined by narration

I've been enjoying Saki since the 70's so very pleased to find this collection on Audible. Unfortunately ruined for me by the narrator and the mispronunciation of Esme.

I can't really imagine anyone other than Stephen Fry reading these.
