(3.5 stars)

the reader of the first three stories totally ruined them relegating them to unlistenable by sounding like a demented dalek. the rest of the stories were quite good and the readers also.

gets better eventually

(3 stars)

The first 3 stories read by Tony Addison are a little bit wearing (he's an expressive & fluent reader but his snipped & over-excitable style of narration can be difficult to stay with) but after that there are other readers & stories that are really good listening and great plots. Thanks to ALL the librivox volunteers for filling my nights with horror, wonder & ponderance!

Just a few

(3 stars)

There are a few stories of interest in the middle and later part of the list but for the most part the readers of the early stories make it painful to get to the them. Start at the end and work your way up.

bloody awful

(2 stars)
