Oh dear! These multi-reader collaborations are supposedly coordinated by one person, but the coordinator slipped up here, as they approved the reading of the first story in this collection despite the fact that it is awful to the point of unintelligibilty. I just gave up on story number one as I just could not understand what the reader was saying. Thankfully, I skipped forward to the next story rather than giving up on the book entirely, and the rest of the stories are read very well, but really, this coordinator is dping nobody any favours, including the reader himself, by allowing such an awful reading to be published, especially as it was the opening chapter of the book. And let me be very clear: I am in no way criticising that reader. He went to the effort of reading and recording that chapter in good faith. It is the coordinator who is to blame for allowing that one reading to spoil the whole project and to waste the efforts of the whole team. The bar to participation should not be high for volunteer readers of course, but the listener MUST be able to understand the words being read. I suspect part of the problem is that the reader didn't understand the words himself. So, don't be put off by the opening chapter. In fact, just skip it and start with Chapter Two. The stories themselves are well worth reading. Good book.
