Narrator's style not right for the content

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The book might have been for me if only the way it was read didn't get in the way. My mood was totally affected by the narration style to the point where I couldn't assess the stories.

Would you recommend The Great Ghost Story Collection to your friends? Why or why not?

I wouldn't recommend this reading to anyone unless they were about 5-7 years old in which case it might be perfect.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Cathy Dobson?

Doug Bradley

What character would you cut from The Great Ghost Story Collection?

Not an appropriate question for a book of stories

Any additional comments?

I couldn't finish listening to this. Cathy Dobson reads as if narrating a funny fairy story to a class of 6-year-olds. In fact she would be perfect for children's stories but her style, although not unskillful, ruins the mood of these stories for me and makes them all seem faintly comical.

Sound Quality is Too Soft

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The stories are good, but the speaker is hard to understand. Voice is lovely, but it is soft and often difficult to understand.

What did you like best about this story?

Classic, spooky stories.

What three words best describe Cathy Dobson’s performance?

Voice is lovely, but she is often difficult to understand. Had to turn volume all the way up, and could follow along, but not easily.

Was The Great Ghost Story Collection worth the listening time?

Yes, I just wish she would speak louder and clearer.
