Great Little Treasures

I always like reading little side stories about my favorite characters. The book has great stories. Unfortunately, the narrator was the same throughout the book and he was as dry and monotone as sandpaper.
The book is great, I just recommend you skip this Audble version and read the Kindle one instead.

Terrible narration

Listened to 1 story and had to return it, which is too bad because I like quite a few of the authors and the stories sounded interesting. There is, however, no way I could listen to Bridger Conklin's monotonous narration for 10+ hours.

Monotonous reader. Mostly mediocre stories.

Most of the stories did not sound well written. I did not appreciate Any of them. Too many also did not have a satisfactory end.

Asil was great!

Stories good Narration Awful

I enjoy many of these authors and some of the stories I heard were quite entertaining. That said, the narrator was terrible, so bad that there was no way for me to continue listening to these stories.
