(4 stars)

Sadly I can’t listen to some readers as for me 60%of the experience is listening to the voice! I find myself mentally correcting the speech of non English natural people, which is of course distracting. I listen at night as I am an insomniac so thus the pickiness ...Should I listen in the day I hope I would be more long suffering. The stories I do listen to I have on a slow speed and I find this way works so I can listen to them repeatedly! The readers deserve medals.... wonderful ! The Ap is brilliant for ancient people like me and also my grandchildren. Thankyou LibriVox keep up the good work!

Stereotypes present

(1 stars)

Stereotype language in The Asassin Club is stark and unnecessary for plot. Detract from overall enjoyment.

too hard to understand with such a heavy accent
