I didn't enjoy the intrusion of the author's opinion of The Yellow Dwarf. OR agree with it. She sounded as bratty as a social media addict of today unloading on a hapless YouTube offering, or hammering strangers on Facebook with her political opinion. Wonder what made her need to do that? She even used the word "trash," of all things. It didn't fit with the rest of the book. This was such a great story book. I LOVED The Yellow Dwarf, though I have read or listened to better retellings than hers. It's more engaging than Rumpelstiltskin, to which she unfavorably compared it, for reasons i can't fathom. They aren't similar at all. ALL readers were excellent as usual. Thank you, archive.org and Librivox volunteers.

Really enjoyable.
