Terrible narrator

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

Every three words she does a downward inflection and a drag! It really makes no difference what she's reading: the title, the author's name, the middle or the end of a sentence. It's so terribly monotonic, I replayed a 10 minutes story three times and still could not follow. This is by far the worst audio book I've ever gotten.

Great selection ruined by abysmal narration.

Superb selection but the narration ruined the experience. Dobson reads every sentence as one would read a fairy tale to a child. Somehow she managed to strip profound passages of meaning with her annoying overdramatic performance. Her unwarranted emphasis on every last word of a sentence was cringeworthy. So disappointing because she ruined the magnificent selections.
