The voices were good; it was a bit frustrating that some of my favourite scenes were cut, though.
A good story that was well performed by all. My only frustration being the words were often difficult to discern and I therefore missed pieces that may have been important.
This is an enjoyable BBC production of the classic tale. The cast are good at their roles and bring the story to life.
Am approximately 1/3 way through reading the book and just not getting round to it, so figured listening to this in the car would be a good way to re-engage. My first experience of Audible.
Firstly, the production: whatever it may say in the blurb, it's abridged. It also falls halfway between being a reading and a radio performance, with a full (impressive) cast but sound effects akin to banging 2 teaspoons together to represent a gallant sword fight.
As for the underlying story, perhaps I have had my expectations altered by the sheer volume of versions, interpretations and updates f these famous characters, but I was left funding the plot not especially compelling, pretty disjointed, and a vehicle for a reasonably uninspiring group fronted by a foppish D'Artagnan.
I hope for better things with subsequent audiobooks.
