If this had a chance,

Would you try another book from the authors and/or Cathy Dobson?

Never anything with this narrator. Dreadful to listen to.

Has Unusual Fairy Tales turned you off from other books in this genre?

No it is not about the material.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Her voice was so dull and dragged every single bit of the writing right down to the ground.

What character would you cut from Unusual Fairy Tales?

It had nothing whatever to do with character, and all to do with the dreadful narrator.

Any additional comments?
