Awful Voice of Reader!!!

Any additional comments?

What a disappointment! The first story on both the American and British collections is read by a woman whose melodramatic, annoyingly-lilting reading style is quite unbearable. I simply cannot understand why they would have chosen her to read at all. I think I am going to have to ask for my credits back.
