An okay book!

Few emotions and expression are overdone in the audio. The stories which has a plain first person voice through out the story are the ones which are pretty good.otherwise other chapters I feel its overdone. Expecting a less dosage of expressions for jayakanthan's words from the narrator. the narrator should not express or feel more than what JK had written is what i felt. otherwise the rest of the chapters are clear and well done..

this is not an interesting read of stories for me is what i felt through out...
