Reviews

(4 stars)

I liked the story, however, I almost stopped listening after the first several chapters. The narrator of the first several chapters was excellent, but after that the narrators had poorer sound quality and made some pronunciation errors, especially with nautical terms.

chapter 18 whispered by reader, unintelligible. reduced rating by one star
