I didn't find a problem with the readers, in fact they were quite good. May I suggest going back to the beginning and replay where necessary. You will likely learn to understand accents of other people around the world, which will improve communication! Call it continuing education.

hmmmm. agree with at least 2 reviewers..

the sound quality is questionable at times, but that make the Readers' work worthy of bad-mouthing. I found that all the Readers did quite well: few mispronunciations, if any & great pacing.. no hurried Readings. And as far as "accents" go, this is a big & small world.. get accustomed to it. I believe these are opportunities to connect us.. obviously, many of us have a deep love & respect for fictional tales.. this is the one place in the world where we can feel & think & learn.

While it's true some of the recording equipment wasn't top notch almost all of the readers were excellant and the stories were all very good and nicely creepy. Might I suggest that the preceding, most exceedingly discerning commenters try a paid audio book services to achieve the stellar experience they need? Or a hearing aid perhaps?

Cant understand a thing being read.

Animals Barking on recording? Not acceptable 😬
