Reviews

(2 stars)

please, please, please stop using the character voices, especially the female ones. The character voices are extremely distracting.

Thank you for a lovely reading!

(5 stars)

I completely agree with the former reveiwer: "the character voices are harsh and grating to the ears". However, I find it to be a minor fault. On the whole the reading is coherent and moving. I have enjoyed it tremendously, and I'm grateful to the reader for his efforts. I would also like to applaud him for reading the whole book, which adds to my enjoyment as a listener (compared to the case of several readers sharing the task).

disappointed

(2 stars)

It was a good story. His regular reading voice was pleasnt enough to make the story enjoyable, however the character voices he used were harsh and grating to my ears. The voices were also distracting from the story, especially while trying to interperate the figuritive language of the indians.

(4 stars)

Much better reader than some of the readers in the other version, which made me switch to this one, however I would suggest that volunteers please not try to imitate different characters voices! We do thank you for reading though. We get what we “pay for”. Enjoyed the book.

good recording quality, bad voice acting

(3 stars)

I agree with the former reviewers critiques of the voices. They just missed the mark. They made smart characters sound dumb and strong characters sound weak -- and a Scottish character sound like he was being strangled. Still, it's a great story and the sound quality is good and consistent throughout so I prefer this to the other version available. Also, I am still grateful for all the reader's efforts to bring the story to life.

(3 stars)

The story was great!!! I love everything I've ever read, or listened to. This Narrative is painful though, especially after having listened to Deerslayer which was very enjoyable. I felt that this Narrater made Hawkeye sound like a less than honorable sissy, and the female voices were like fingernails on a chalk. Board. I did however enjoy how de Made David sound like the oaf he is.

ok reading

(3 stars)

good overall reading, but I found it difficult to concentrate in some of the long parts. the voice the reader takes for some of the characters is really not agreeable to me.

much better version

(5 stars)

I started listening to a different version but the readers kept changing each chapter. this version was much more consistent and easier to listen to. thank you
