Reader has a Good Voice

(5 stars)

It can be hard to find a reader who does not over act. This reader is natural and carries the words as I imagine they were meant to be read and said.

I love this story, and im happy these are free but and im not trying to be mean someone with a lisp distracts from it.

Play nice children

(3 stars)

I haven't (and/or have not) listened to this rendition yet; however, I give ☆☆☆ to the high school students posting comments. I am (and/or I'm) sure your English teacher is proud of you.

Most enjoyable!

I felt as if I was in the room with the Raven, feeling what Poe was feeling as he wrote.


(3.5 stars)

I really love this poem, though the reader leaves something to be desired. but still, one of the all time best spooky reads!


(5 stars)

I simply love this poem and I truly believe Mr. Goringe's voice and tone have added a wonderful flavour to it.

Great poem and great reading. The accent was almost comical though. If Christopher Lee read this I'd believe I was in the room.

chills went down my spine listening to this reading; just as they did yearrs ago when I first read it for myself.
