ineffective narration

Very Dull & Boring Narrative Voices.
Don't feel like listening such Passive Tones.
People need expressive soothing tones.

Narration was awful...

Narrator was monotone and hard to understand. At least it was only one credit in my free trial, although I really wish I still had that credit! $23 is way too much for this collection. PASS!

Very Disappointed

It was very hard to understand the narrator. Therefore, I did not enjoy the one story I got through.

Absolutely terrible narration

I could not even make it through Chapter 1. You would think that Audible would vet the narrators beforehand, but it would seem not. Absolutely awful. No emotion or drama to the storytelling, and completely distracted from what otherwise are some fantastic stories.
