Classic story

I had to to read this book in school, and found it amazing. it brought back fond memories.
It is refreshing to hear the author reading his own story.
What a fascinating book and I say this book should be put in the schools for the kids of today and the future to enjoy.

Fantastic

I read this book as a child, but I didn't feel the same about it as I do now. I is really compelling and the picture it paints of society is still true today. I have found myself over and over again thinking of this book and how society behaves, it is so poignant. That is why this book is a classic and should be read by everyone.

Great story - bad narration

I love this tale. Read it years ago and so looked forward to hearing it. However, the author should NOT have read this book. Had some difficulties with his lack of expressions. Quality of sound improved a little after chapter 5. I hope that some day it is re-done with a different narrator (unabridged of course!).
