narration is AWFUL

I wish I could return it. or could give the narrator 0 stars. I do not know who heard her voice and thought it was good for recording. it's awful!

Worst audio artist ever

The reader has no rhythm to her voice and makes even normal words sound bizarre normally I’d find this interesting but it ruined this for me

Great stories terrible narration

I just signed up for the free trial and I was really looking forward to this but Cathy Dobson narrates the whole thing terribly - I would have far sooner had Stephen Fry or somebody who has some sincerity and doesn't sound like a sarcastic primary school teacher. Extremely disappointing Audible!
