This collection and the narrator were thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing entertainment. The best I have heard in a long time.

OMG! The Narration!

This is the worst narrated book I have ever listened to! I wish the lady would pick an accent and stick with it, and what is up with all the pauses! Is this a Pinter play!? All I wanted was an expansive short story volume, read in a normal voice...Hell, you could have had Hodor read this and it would have been way better than this over dramatic lady.
