Reviews

interesting mix of accents and readers

(4 stars)

It's really pleasant hearing so many different readers, many Scandinavian. The stories themselves are quite bizarre and nonsensical, unashamedly religious and questionably age appropriate. My only issue is the varied volume of some readers.
