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.

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.

What disappointed you about The Great Russian Short Story Collection?
The reader is possibly the worst I have come across. Completely artificial and inappropriate emphasis and intonation
Would you be willing to try another one of Cathy Dobson’s performances?
Definitely not !!
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The stories are by significant authors but any positive qualities they may have are more than outweighed by the very strange reading.
Any additional comments?
There are several other adverse comments on this reader on other titles on Red Door Audio
Books catalogue. I cant imagine why she was chosen other than for financial reasons
