Pathetic Narration

Absolute waste of time and effort. The soulless rendering of the stories completely destroy such good stories. Sheer incompetence from the story teller. No emotions. Request Team Audible to re record this with someone better.

Calms you down.

Ruskin Bond is almost magical in these short stories.
With closed eyes hearing to the stories of normal people who neither are heroes nor villains almost stops all the cacophony in your life. He teleported me to the hills. I was at peace, calm and still. Almost a meditative experience!

a softer voice needed

The book could do with a softer voice, a less raspy voice perhaps, and no, a review does not have to be fifteen words !
