sounds odd

(2 stars)

The reading seems ok, but the cadence is really odd. Is it actually read by a person? It sounds a little like the family guy take on Willaim Shatner's delivery! Is this a technical issue at my end or the way the guy sounds?

One of Howard's best Conan's stories

(5 stars)

One of the best Conan stories. A very good reading although the reader seemed a bit wooden early on. He quickly feel into a good pace and feel. Highly recommended.

This is a very action-filled story with some racy scenes so be warned; I wouldn't play this one for the kids. Excellent reading and recording quality. Enjoy!
