Stories ruined by terrible narration.

I listened to the first story, then skipped to the start of several others to see if the narration improved. Unfortunately it didn't vary. To me the narrator sounded like a cross between a female Uriah Heep and the witch from Snow White. I couldn't listen to any more, irrespective of how good the stories may have been, so I returned it. I'd advise others to listen to the sample before considering purchasing this audiobook.
