Narrator's style not right for the content
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.
I wouldn't recommend this reading to anyone unless they were about 5-7 years old in which case it might be perfect.
Not an appropriate question for a book of stories
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
The stories are good, but the speaker is hard to understand. Voice is lovely, but it is soft and often difficult to understand.
Classic, spooky stories.
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.
Yes, I just wish she would speak louder and clearer.
