Awful narrator!

Cathy Dobson should immediately consider other career options. She is quite possibly the worst narrator I have had the displeasure of listening to. A shame really given how riveting some of the stories in the book. I would return this audio book if I knew how to honestly

Great stories, but . . .

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was not time well spent because the narrator had a very annoying voice. These stories are wonderful classics and I so looked forward to listening to them, but the narrator had such a strange style of speaking, I just couldn't listen. The unfortunate thing is that she narrated all the stories.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fifty Classic Horror Stories?

The most memorable moment was when I stopped listening in the middle of the fourth story because of the narrator and made the decision to delete the collection from my library.

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


Any additional comments?

Not recommended. Don't waste your credit on this one.

The Narrator from Hell

What would have made Fifty Classic Horror Stories better?

The Narrator

What other book might you compare Fifty Classic Horror Stories to, and why?

Fifty classic gothic stories

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I have never heard narration like it's almost impossible to describle and apparently she has narrated many, many books her voice is so strange that you become obsessed with listening to her voice and not the story ...If I met her in real life ..I would have to have a word with her !

What character would you cut from Fifty Classic Horror Stories?

none ...just the narrator !

Any additional comments?

yes please re release these amazing collections with a different narrator, thank you, have a nice day :)
