In defense of the narrator.

I have listened to the 23+ hours of Moby Dick with this narrator and I think he is one of the best that I have heard; in fact, I would rank him in the top three. But there are narrators that I don't like but many people do, e.g., Fank Muller is a popular narrator and I can't listen to him at all. I recommend listening to the sample and deciding for yourself.

beautiful book and good narrator

I agree with the above reviewer that the narrator is very good. His style suits this book perfectly and is very listenable. It's also true each person should judge for themselves, as everyone has their individual preferences.

Walden was written in a different era, and its beauty is not for those who are impatient. For example, one cannot go into nature and expect to have the same quick hit that city life can give; in the same way one can't approach literature in the same way as pulp fiction. One needs to slow down to savour the texture, beauty and insights of a classic like this. And for those who can appreciate it, it's worth it.
