Publisher's Summary

The Koran is not only one of the most influential books of prophetic literature but also a literary masterpiece in it’s own right. Universally accepted by Muslims to be the infallible Word of God as revealed to Mohammed by the Angel Gabriel nearly 1,400 years ago, the Koran still provides the rules of conduct fundamental to the Arab way of life.

A Clear and Sober Reading

I have long been looking for an audio version of the Quran. This is the first that I have found that was easily available and not divided into so many parts as to make it too expensive. This is N. J. Dawood's 1956 translation published in Penguin Classics with the Suras in the correct order. The reader is very clear, sober and rather monotone in his presentation. I wish that there were a way to navigate more easily and find particular Suras. The translation is in modern English prose with no real attempt at poetic quality, but the power of the Quran's language comes through. I found myself grateful for a solid presentation of this very important work.

Koran complete and unabridged

the narration is basiscly what I was expecting, bu there are times that the translation doesn't completely change all Arabic word into english. for me that is okay becaus I have studied a little Arabic. If you want to hear the words of the Koran this is an okay translation. I wish though that they would have placed more breaks in the translation. The reason is that you cannot listen to it all at once and one time I bumped my ipod back to start of book 1 and had to fast forward 5 hours.

Excellent, but narration is challenging

A good, easy, and relatively inexpensive purchase for anyone that has long wanted to read the Quran but has been 'too busy' to do so.
4 stars rather than 5 because I found the narration of the Noorbox version more alive, and I preferred their translation. A little more expensive, but worth it in my opinion!

Repetitive beyond all endurance

I was expecting a literary masterpiece but I was sorely disappointed.
I could not believe how this work just repeats the same thing again and again....and again..dozens if not hundreds of times in exactly the same manner.
