Poor narration

Sounded like my third grade teacher at story time. I just couldn’t take the narration, nor any of the stories seriously. Not worth my time. I read 3 - 4 books a week on Audible. This was an especially poor one. I hope this is helpful.

For lore junkies

These are told in a very campfire and oral tradition style. They're a fun listen.

Old-fashioned Children’s Stories

They’re children’s stories, and not very modern ones, but I like them. I like the lilting storytelling, and the morals hidden in some of the stories. They’re not terribly scary, but they do offer a glimpse at times past, and the possibility of an afterlife. I do get the sense that this was created for a very young crowd, and with the school board in mind. They should have allowed the scare factor to climb a little higher.
