good play

(3 stars)

great job by many in the cast but unfortunately there were several readers who were very difficult to understand so that I had to read along with a book. but what's the point of an audiobook when you need a written text too?

Nicely done everyone.

(5 stars)

I enjoyed it. I know there are a few complaints about the accents, but I didn't find it too bad, In fact, I think the frogs worked really well. thank you.

(3.5 stars)

the cast was great except for the Dionysus character. He was much too difficult to hear at times

(2.5 stars)

Sorry, but I can't understand the Indian accented reader. So I gave up in the 1st chapter.
