Liked this book

I liked this book, though it's not exactly for beginners. Short stories divided into even smaller parts, that makes listening and memorising new words easier.
Some plots are more interesting, others less, but make a fascinating story within limits of A-level book's vocabulary is almost impossible.

This is not for beginners

What disappointed you about Spanish Short Stories for Beginners, Volume 2?

This is very difficult to follow and there is no help or references.

What could Olly Richards have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

It would be nice to have a written book to refer to and/or an english synopsis of the stories in case the listener was having difficulty understand. My spanish professor
warned me and she was right.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Susana Larraz?

Narrator was fine.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Spanish Short Stories for Beginners, Volume 2?

I didn't understand enough to be able to comment on this.
