Annoying voice

The stories are classics, but the narrators rythym was irritating. The stories themselves are fantastically written but I felt that the narrator was trying to tell a cheesy horror story to a toddler.

Hated narrator big time

American Stories Not Narrated In American English! Woman sounded spiteful, unpleasant, grinding, slurring it was bad.

Didn't like narration

Narration style and accent distracted me from enjoying the stories.

Also the pause / transition between stories was so quick and monotone that I was often unsure which story I was in.

It's alright

A wide range of quality when it comes to the stories. Too many stories are kind of dull and skippable. The Gift of the Magi is read twice.

The narrator tries to read a bit too dramatically, masking the intonation and syllables that would otherwise make meaning clear.

I'm surprised the cost is so high for books that are public domain and narration that is sub-par.

narrator is bad

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I have only listened to the first 3 stories. I had hoped that each story would have a different narrator. But NO....

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Cathy Dobson?

Don't know

Could you see The Great American Short Story Collection being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

no

Awesome stories... voice was distracting

Most of these stories are really good, some dark, others cute. I'd share this with a teenager in my life. The narrator, however, has a nasal, annoying, British or something accent, and sometimes I couldn't concentrate on the storyline because of it. I'll never listen to anything by this voice actress again.

Narration is awful! They're short stories, not plays!

Didn't like the actress/automated voice narrating these precious short stories. I assume the "voice" is British, and I love and watch British tv and movies....love them. But this narration is awful. Could not finish a single story with this narration. Too bad because this great story collection.

Narrator is awful - sounds like Elizabeth Holmes

The narrator sounds like Elizabeth Holmes' fake voice. This audio was truly unlistenable. Good grief. Ugh

Awful narration

I can’t really tolerate the narration long enough to listen to the story so I can’t really report on that aspect of the book unfortunately. The narration is awful and the voice is drawn out and the accent sounds incredibly fake. Considering it’s “American” short stories, the narration shouldn’t be a fake sounding English accents should it? But that’s just one gals opinion.

Stories ruined by narration

Would you try another book written by the authors or narrated by Cathy Dobson?

Everrrrry woord is soooo longggg - The narration is so annoying with every word dragged out....it really makes this inaudible although a shame because some of the stories are not bad.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Completely! - The narrator is awful! I gave this a 1 STAR because of the narrator - could not listen to the stories....

Any additional comments?

Avoid books from this narrator

Strange short stories

A weird collection of strange stories made even weirder by the odd narrating style of Cathy Dobson. Because of this I found it hard to concentrate on the stories themselves.

horrible narrator, completely ruined the stories

horrible narrator, completely ruined the stories and rendered the book unlistenable. Utterly disconnected, sing song delivery , very disappointing.
