Unbearable Narrator ruins experience

Narrator has no life or emotion and the reading is so dull and flat that a computer voice would have been more interesting. This narrator should be banned from narrating any other books. Don’t ruin another story with this unbearable voice.

Regrettably, it sounds like a midi reader

The reader appears very accomplished, so I hesitate to write this negative review. His pronunciation is clear and articulate, but the reading is choppy and awkward. It actually sounds like a computer is reading the book. I'm afraid I couldn't finish.

Dreadful Narration!

I was determined to finish the book, but this narrator made it such hard work. He has a rhythm he sticks to regardless of sense or sentence. I will avoid him at all costs in the future.

Great stories ruined by the reader

These are great stories by a well loved author totally ruined by an dreadful reading. I was unable to complete the book due to the incomprehensible reading. The stresses are constantly wrong on each sentence, he ignores punctuation so stops in the wrong place making the whole meaning of what was written confused and messy. Accents and voices all over the place. Do not waste your money on this book.
