What disappointed you about The Scarlet Letter?
The narrator's voice. I am pretty easy going but the narrator's lisp-like impediment grated on my nerves after a while. The audio book was $2.95 but, WOW, it was not a bargain. I need to take the time to screen my selections a little better. I've read the book and I saw the price and I figured,
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Scarlet Letter?
I wasn't able to listen to all of it because of the narrator's voice.
What didn’t you like about Curtis Sisco’s performance?
He has a monotone voice with a lisp-like quality to it.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
I love the story. I only wish they could have chosen a different narrator. Sorry, Curtis.
Any additional comments?

I wish I would have read the review first, this is a horrible audio. it is so slow. It sounds worse that a recording of a robot. I would never buy any work by this man again or suggest anyone to buy it. I am reading it for school and i am so disappointed that it is ruining the story

I bought the cheapest version of this audiobook and let's just say I got what I paid for. The version by Curtis Sisco is far and away the worst performance of an audiobook I've ever experienced. HOWEVER it got a lot better after I turned the speed to 1.25x. The book I quite enjoyed though.
