    I just can't listen to this narrator

    I love these stories but just I could not bear this narrator. I tried - I really tried.

    Annoying

    Annoying and melancholic narration. The accent drives me nuts. Worst purchase ever. Very monotone. Would like my money back.

    Narration is annoying

    The sing-song voice of the British narrator was fine for the first story or so but was highly annoying in its sameness over time.
