This is not worth the $1.36 I spent on it.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This read like the introduction to a book. Felt like it was only 2-3 very short paragraphs - I wouldn't even classify it as a short story because it really felt like it was just starting to tell a story.

What three words best describe Shannon Cochran’s voice?

Pleasant but forgettable

Any additional comments?

Not really a short story in my opinion - more like an opening to a book. I expected more even in only 17 minutes.
