Applauding from Borneo

(5 stars)

This is such a scifi classic that I have sort of been avoiding it. However...seeing that this version was narrated by Mark Nelson...I jumped right in. Absolutely no disappointment here. I loved the descriptive depths achieved and the ideas propounded...so advanced for the time the book was written. Give it a few months and I will listen again....

Well read.

(4 stars)

Narration was pleasant and easy to listen to. Story very interesting to hear an imagined fuyure of the human race from someone who lived and penned this back before current technology. Glad to have finally gotten around to 'reading' this classic.

A Great performance.

(5 stars)

I have listened to multiple books. Mr Nelson is by far the most professional reader I have heard. The quality matches books from professionally-produced audiobooks. The story is interesting and enjoyable. Congratulations to Mr. Nelson for his excellent performance!

the only part i dont like about the audio books is the fact that they stop after each chapter needing to be restarted. this is inconvenient if you are driving. please fix this and i would give it 5 stars.

totally entertaining

this is the first time I'm actually read the book. up until now my only experience was by way of the classic movie. minor correction. Ireland listen to book :-). very well-read by the narrator.

good voice, fluctuating quality

(4.5 stars)

A fitting reader bringing to live a classic piece of visionary literature, however, unfortunately some of the episodes have a rather poor mircophone quality. Apart from that: a wonderful audiobook
