Great stories, awful narration

What did you like best about Classic Science Fiction, Volume 1? What did you like least?

The stories are classics. The narration is horrible.

Who was your favorite character and why?

This isn't applicable since this is a short story collection.

What didn’t you like about Stephen F. Clark’s performance?

I didn't like anything about his performance. He has no feel for the material. I doubt that he even likes science fiction. These are classic stories and deserve to be treated with the appropriate amount of respect. Instead the narrator reads with about as much involvement as one would expect for a book of cake recipes.
