Reviews

read excellently

(4.5 stars)

Reader is quiet excellent! Love this book and thoroughly enjoyed hearing Sarah read it.

Good reader good book but....

(3 stars)

The reader was so great but she kept swallowing loudly and incessantly throughout the book. Right into the mic. It sounds like a silly thing to complain about but she was literally in my ear and it drove me nuts. Without that I would have given her 5 stars. The book was great. I've been resistant to reading it, probably because it is so widely known and (poorly) adapted. I'm also not a huge fan of epistolary novels, or novels made up of journal entries that have been stitched together. However, it really works here, and each character brings something interesting to the story.

(4 stars)

10 stars to Kara S. Flawless reading. Thank you. However the story tends to drag a bit at certain moments. The end was not the final showdown I was hoping for. Still a great story. 3.75 Stars for the book.

Good

good reader and a timeless story

Very good

(4.5 stars)

Excellent story. Great reading. A little odd to hear a female voice narrating mostly men's journals, but I got used to it. Thank you Kara for your time to do this.
