You get what you pay for.

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?

Buyers beware.

The Scarlet Letter read by Curtis Sisco

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

this reader sucks!

I am reading this for school, and is sounds like they recorded all the words then played them all strung together. It sounds horrible and it is read really slowly.

Don't buy this version

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.

Bad Narration

I could not finish this because of the narration. It sounded like he was just reading one word at a time without any flow or context
