Good stories

What did you love best about Fifty Thrilling Stories?

I was in the mood for something like Lovecraft, and these fit the bill.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Cathy Dobson?

She is the worst narrator ever. Her accent is intrusive, and her cadence is almost unbearable.

Horrific reading

The stories seem to be good, but Dobson's performance is so monotonous that it's completely impossible to enjoy them. Avoid this recording.

Dreadfull narrator

Story's seem interesting but the vocal of narrator so off putting its impossible to listen to for long, I've never heard words pronounced the way she does, but I it's very peculiar and off putting! It's never taken me soooo long to finish a book and don't think I ever will this one.😔😔
