Reviews


(5 stars)

Very fascinating story! I only listened to the first 10 chapters because I read the a paper copy for the rest. Liked how the different characters were portrayed. I did find several of the readers a little hard to understand, but that was because their accents are different than I’m used to hearing! And hey, who’s gonna complain about volunteers?!

I apologize


(1 stars)

I can't stand a Mr Jellybear with a southern accent any more than I can stand a Mr Dubster with one in Camilla. Luckily Karen Savage's reading is much better so I downloaded that and deleted this one.


(4.5 stars)

Readers did a good job and were easy to understand! Sir Andrew’s voice however did not fit him in the least which was slightly disappointing but a very worthwhile story nevertheless.

Worth a listen


(4 stars)

Well read narration,the cast were great,. Atmospheric to a tee. I could almost see Leslie Howard when Sir Percy was front and centre. Excellent!


(2 stars)

The volume is overall too low to hear over 35 mph while in a car. Some characters are loud enough, but inconsistent. Acting seems amateur, unconvincing.


(4 stars)

I wish they had kept the characters and narrators more consistent, though overall it was well done and I enjoyed it! Thank you!


(5 stars)

A great story well written, a classic. Some of the voice animations too soft to hear.


(5 stars)

Pretty good, wish the volume was the same each chapter though...
