Scintillating Stories

Selena has taken the childhood stories we grew up with and created clever rewrites for a modern world. Thoroughly entertaining.

Worst narration ever!

If I could give it no stars, I would...but then I wouldn't be able to warn you! The writing was simplistic, but it was the narrator who ruined it completely! I don't know how she got the gig. She was unable to pronounce the simplest of words..."heady" was always pronounced as "heedy". Her comprehension level was nill. I don't know if the problem with extremely long pauses in the middle of sentences was due to a production issue, or was again the narrator's fault. I will never again listen to anything she is a part of and am asking for my credit back.

SEXY Modern Fairy Tales

TONS of stories, eight of them total I think, and I liked all of them, some more than others. The sex in this is hot (I've read Selena Kitt before, so I knew that was coming - ha ha) but the stories are great modern twists on traditional fairy tales. Very creative. Every story has a happy ending (shouldn't all fairy tales?) and Selena does a great job putting it all together. The narration is great, easy to listen to, not distracting from the stories. I would highly recommend this!

Decent stories, bad narration

The stories themselves were actually decent. However the narrator was horrible. The bad pronunciations, overly long pauses in the wrong places. It’s almost as if the book was never edited. The music at the beginning of each chapter was annoying. I don’t mind music at the beginning and end of a book but at each chapter was a bit much. I like the stories enough to look for more by this author but noticed that the same narrator is used for many... I’m gonna have to do a hard pass.

Underwhelming. It didn't sizzle...

It fizzled and has worked well as a sedative for the last few nights. Poor character development and boring sex scenes. So unlike Kitt

Holly Hackett is driving me crazy!

I don't know how much more of this I can stand. The mispronunciations and terrible acting take away completely from the story. I feel like an 8th-grade drama student is doing the reading. I'm 1 hour into the book, and I have to give up. She just pronounced "expENDable" as "expANDable." Really? I'm not sure she's even paying attention to the words.

Save Your Money

Would you try another book from Selena Kitt and/or Holly Hackett?

I hate to admit that I wasted my money and time on what has to be poorly written porn. Selena Kitt wrote this book at a third grade English level and Holly Hackett read it at an old fashion zombie pace rendering the dull prose down to sleeping pill strength. The characters hardly reach one dimension let alone two, and it's impossible to find them worth investing our sympathy or time in.
You're better off saving your money and time by checking out any modern murder mystery where you'll find better written sex scenes on top of well written suspenseful plots.
This is the first book that I've listened to written by Selena Kitt and read by Holly Hackett so I'll check out a few more of their works before giving up on them. I just won't spend any money while doing so.

What do you think your next listen will be?

J. D. Robb's Thankless in Death: Book 37.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Holly Hackett read this book with all the finesse of a second grader giving their first oral report. There were too many unnecessary pauses to count. As for her investing any effort in creating vocal personalities for the different characters, she didn't seem to feel it worth her time.
I've enjoyed many readers and am sorry to say that Ms. Hackett isn't, at this time, one of them. Perhaps when I check out her work on another book, written by a different author, she will prove to be better than this material gave her the opportunity to be. I'm hoping so as it's hard to write such a negative review as this.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Modern Wicked Fairy Tales Complete Collection: An Erotic Romance Anthology?

It needs too much work to even think about cutting scenes. I would have called this a first rough draft and after doing a simple spelling and grammar check, I'd send it back to Ms. Kitt to rewrite.

Any additional comments?

I'll go to the library to see if they carry any of Ms. Kitt's work and see if this book was just a fluke before leaving her on my list of authors to avoid.

Horrible Narrator

I wanted to like this, I really did but the narrator is so bad that I find myself wanting to drop this book and listen to something else. Holly Hackett sounds like she didn’t want to read this book so didn’t make any attempt to make it listenable. The pauses!! Why make pauses between sentences? Holly was just overall, horrible! If you want to give this book a change, I suggest maybe finding an actual book and read it yourself. Skip the audiobook.
