The book is unlistenable as the narrator has unnaturally emphasized and placed inflection, expressing surprise at the end and even in the middle of every sentence.
The stories are classics but hard to evaluate given the distracting reading.

At first I couldn't figure out what this narrator was trying to do with her unbearably singsong voice, then I did some research and realise she is reading for children - her delivery is beyond annoying and I can't listen to her. I really urge you to listen to a sample before you spend money on this oddity! I couldn't get past the second story and am very annoyed, I really wanted to hear these short stories - shame on you Audible for not explaining this is a childrens' book and shame on me for not listening to a sample first!

Only managed a few paragraphs. The narrator's voice is dreadful. Great stories I'm sure but I really couldn't get past the way the narrator dragged out the end of every phrase.
