Approachable for new Dickens readers

Narration was fantastic, Mr. Griffen is fantastic in anything he does.

Novel wise, this was hilarious and heartbreaking. Probably the most approachable Dickens novel.

Classic Literature with a Distinctive Voice

Would you consider the audio edition of Paradise Lost & Paradise Regained to be better than the print version?

No, this sort of thing is meant to be read. However, this is an excellent reading of the text.

What does Charlton Griffin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Charlton Griffin is the BOSS. In the field of voice acting he is on par with Morgan Freeman and the like.

A Worthy Choice for a Curious Gamer or Fan

What was one of the most memorable moments of Super Mario?

The description of the court battle between Universal and Nintendo over the supposed trademark infringement of Universal's King Kong, by Nintendo's breakout hit Donkey Kong.

What does Ray Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Surprised by Porter's deliver. Never heard him before, but he comes right off the page and brings the text to life.

Narrator Doesn't Do It Justice

Would you try another book from Mary Shelley and/or Simon Vance?

Not from Simon Vance

How did the narrator detract from the book?

His diction didn't vary much. The quality of the recording was lacking.

Any additional comments?

I love this book, but I could not get into this reading of it. Vance's delivery put me to sleep more than it drew me in. His tonality is soft and he doesn't change pitch or act much out. I really feel like its an overall fail of a great piece of literature.

AC Doyle Brings it!!

If you could sum up The Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes, Volume 2 in three words, what would they be?

Intriguing smooth talker

What does Charlton Griffin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Great voice; when I think Sherlock I hear Charlton Griffin.

Any additional comments?

As a fan of the Law and Order, I feel like this is OG for the 1890s. Formulaic? Yes. Enjoyable? Immensely! Worth getting without a doubt.
