Great stories, bad narration

This is a fascinating tour through old science fiction ... or would be, if the narration didn't suck so hard. Horrible intonation, awkward pauses -- it doesn't get much worse. Not a way to treat the masters.

Poor reader

Good content, enjoyed the stories. When I could get past the halting monotone of the reader.

Great Collection of Authors

Any additional comments?

My only complaint about this audio book is that it was a little too short (only 1.5 hours). The content within that short time is nearly all pure gold. There are one or two stories that had me wondering WHY they were added to the collection, but overall it's a great compilation of some of my favorite authors. The fact that the book contains Sheckley, Asimov, Dick, AND Clarke should be enough reason alone to check this one out.

Playback speed adjustment improves the listen

What did you like best about Tell Me a Story? What did you like least?

These are classic syfy stories, very enjoyable in themselves, however the reader does an unusually poor job. I found if I adjusted the playback speed to 1.5 most of the awkward gaps in the speech cadence were eliminated.

Get someone else to Tell Me a Story.

The reading is not very professional, and the collection of stories seems hap-hazard and somewhat dated. However, the William Gibson contribution is a rare short story.

Good stories, bad narration

What did you like best about Tell Me a Story? What did you like least?

I enjoyed most of the stories in this book but I really wish I knew who narrated this book so I could avoid ever getting another by him.
By no means the best of what these authors. Many of the endings were a bit predictable and trite but I still enjoyed them. Just the constant hesitations and extremely odd breaks by the narrator detracted and made the book hard to listen too.

Would you be willing to try another one of the narrator’s performances?

Not by choice but I can't find his name.

Has the Narrator ever read anything out loud before

Wow. The narration is painful on this one. The stories are great but it sounds like the narrator is reading this book for the first time. Choppy sentences, mispronounced words. No voice inflection or anything to discern different characters or moods. I had to stop listening after 2 stories because it was just too painful.
