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.

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
