Classic story barely tolerable narrator Alan Munro

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

not bad to listen to while doing other things.

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

Just about anyone could do better. this Narrator is kind of like an english William Shatner with his odd pauses in sentences. I usually find english accents and pronunciations humorous and entertaining but this guy is just bad. I dont generally expect narrators to be great at imitating numerous people but this guy was really bad in that respect as well.

Was The Island of Doctor Moreau worth the listening time?

Flip a coin.

Any additional comments?

I really love audio books. ive been able to listen to many of the classics i wouldnt otherwise invest the time to get to know. From now on ill be avoiding books narrated by Alan Munro regardless of how tempting the book may be.

Poor Reading of a Great Story

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Alan Munroe has a way of adding many mid-sentence pauses. I never made it near the end of a long-anticipated listen.
