Terrible translation/boring audio of great classic
I loved this book as a child (I don't read French but read it in Russian and couldn't put it down, which means the translation was very good). Now my middle schooler is reading it as a class assignment, so I bought both Kindle edition and Audible audio book. Different versions, I think, as the Kindle edition is not too bad (not as good as I remember, but OK), This Audible version is extremely boring, in both contents and performance. It feels like a short synapses of the actual book, and it is read in a monotone voice. I was trying to listen to it yesterday, and will keep it away from my child, as I really want her to enjoy this great classic, not hate it. If this version was the first one I read/listened to, I would have never finished it and would not have believed this book was even remotely interesting. Extremely disappointing. So far, it's my worst experience with audio books. Please do yourself a favor and try to read a good translation. Don't watch Hollywood movies either, the last two are pretty bad as well.
