Ugh, more great material ruined by Cathy Dobson

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A better narrator without the strange cadence and random inflections!

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

Other great classic material ruined by Dobson's weird narration.

What didn’t you like about Cathy Dobson’s performance?

Everything. She has a British accent, which would usually bode well for this type of material, but in her case it's just awful.

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

The scene where Cathy Dobson enters the narrators booth.

What disappointed you about Horror Stories?

Mostly the narration, but the stories are pretty unhorrific as well.

Has Horror Stories turned you off from other books in this genre?


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

Absolutely not. Her performance doesn't make these dated tales to life.

What character would you cut from Horror Stories?

The narrator.
