Classic Story-Despite the Reader

I can't imagine that this story needs much introduction. The story itself is fun and enjoyable. The reader made it a bit of a grind. I'm not sure I can point to individual things without listening to it again, which I'm just not willing to do. That should pretty much tell you how I feel about it.

Great Story, Poor Recording Quality

I would highly recommend the story, but find another copy. The recording quality on this edition is poor. There are often noises in the background, like sirens or engines, and it is easy to tell when different takes were edited together because the sound quality changes completely. Sometimes it sounds like it was recorded in a sound studio, other times in a muffled closet, and sometimes it sounds like it was recorded in a living room while the yard is being mowed outside.

The narrator did very well in spite of the sound quality. He really brought the story to life and made me fear these Martians, even after all the times I have read this book before. I love this book, and it has always been one of my favorites. I only wish that the sound quality was smoother and less distracting.

Great story

This is a compelling account of an alien invasion and one man's struggle to survive, a must read for Sci-Fi fans. However this particular version is let down by a terrible recording. Volume and tone changes abound and it was for me at least a disappointment.
