the red etin

(5 stars)

the narrator has a very thick Scottish/irish (sorry I'm not sure which). It really doesn't matter what he reads. He could read the phone book for all I care. the story was good, the accent is even better. thank you! ; )

great collection, mixed readings

(4 stars)

most of the readers were fine to excellent, and no missed lines/words, but several are dry, dull, or hard to listen to.

(2.5 stars)

Yay! Love Andrew lang, hate mixed reading! Wish you'd just choose the reader and be done with it.

good stories mostly

(3.5 stars)

A collection of interesting tales. some good, some not so good. must say that the reader of the last two stories had the most hilarious German accent I've ever heard.
