One of the worst performances

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator would pause, frequently in the middle of a sentence, as if he needed more energy to continue. It was distracting and ultimately, greatly diminished my enjoyment of the book itself.

Random Pauses in Speech. (Captain Kirk narrates)

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A different narrator. I love this book, but couldn't listen for more than a few minutes before I had a headache.

I'm not picky, I love listening to amateurs and friends read aloud. But this guy just makes it unbearable.


What was one of the most memorable moments of The Time Machine?

The final fleeing from the Morlocks, and the subtle implication of the girl who fell behind's fate.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Alan Munro?

The last audiobook I bought, which I quite enjoyed, was The Stand. The narrator was wonderful. He did a very good jo of being interesting without being jarring. Alan Munro, on the other hand, has random pauses in his speech. I forgot the beginning of the sentence before I hear the end.
