Reader is ill-suited for the material

What would have made Great Classic Crime Stories better?

A narrator with more experience weaving a storyline.

What was most disappointing about the authors’s story?

I do not know --- I couldn't get past the narrator's inability to craft comprehensible sentences.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I'm beating a dead horse here. Wrong narrator for the content.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Great Classic Crime Stories?

I couldn't get that far.

Any additional comments?

I'm kicking myself for not listening to the preview. I promise this will never happen again.

Narrator too distracting

I tried a couple hours worth of this book but I just couldn't get pass the narrator's accent and the way she draws out her words. stories are potentially good but I just could not focus.
