Great Stories

The stories were excellent! I loved the selection. I personally didn't care much for the narrator- I felt that her style didn't really complement the stories. She did kinda grow on me some over the course of the 24 hours of listening though.

Cathy Dobson spoilt this collection

Would you try another book written by the authors or narrated by Cathy Dobson?

Horrible grating voice by Cathy Dobson,

Would you recommend The Great Adventure Story Collection to your friends? Why or why not?

the collection was ok not great, i would love to tell you about some of the story's but Cathy really spoilt it for me

What didn’t you like about Cathy Dobson’s performance?

Mon-atone voice not enough range to tell the difference between one character and the next

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Great Adventure Story Collection?


Any additional comments?
