Choppy Reading

(3 stars)

Sporadic pauses, slurred words and exaggerated emphasis do not a good listening experience make. The quality of readers differs dramatically across the board with this one, with differences in pacing and the occasional nasal tone of voice making it impossible for this listener to immerse herself in the story.

Enjoyed the stories. I thought the narraters did a great job.
