Stories are great, if narrator was bearable

Would you be willing to try another one of Cathy Dobson’s performances?

I'd try one... but would turn it off immediately if there was the same problem.

Any additional comments?

Narrator read so slowly that my brain couldn't focus on what she was saying. She would lose me halfway through a sentence. I try to do things while listening, and even sitting still doing nothing but listening... it was painful and impossible to stay focused with her reading.
