Coolest Biographical Ever

(5 Sterne)

The chapters in this book are more intriguing than a tap dancing unicorn. Thank you to the exceptional narrator who brought the pages to life. The derogatory reviewers are in very bad taste to say the least. Are they so inept that they dont realize; narrators volunteer their time to record epic tomes such as this one? Perhaps such reviewers should go back to playing video games and watching episodes of the Kardashians.

boring account & boring reader

(3 Sterne)

while the overall story of the hms bounty and crew is fascinating, this book is boring. the reader doesn't help any, he reads in a slow monotonous way that just makes this work of literature even worse. the writer has obviously recorded this just as his log is kept "date, location, weather, this thing happened" with a lack of real story or description - I mean, I didn't even realize they abandoned the attempt to go around south America until he kept saying "cape of good hope" and I was like - wait?! they went to africa? what happened in the atlantic? it's just to boring to follow. which is sad, because these men survived unimaginable things!

the way this guy reads is awesome and steve is dumb!

(5 Sterne)

the way this guy reads is awesome. he rocks some Jack London pretty well to pieces as well. he is my favorite reader. Steve is obviously an asshat. Suck it Steve Colby. this guy rocks. the book was also ok and Steves mom makes annoying clicking sounds.

the facts behind "men against the sea."

(1 Sterne)

reader speaks in a full monotone. it's a good book to fall asleep to he also has the unfortunate habit pronouncing every native word so awkwardly that they almost beat the listener into submission Extremely grating to one's ears! 🤐😣😠

Annoying Clicking Sounds

(2 Sterne)

I hate giving bad reviews but there was something wrong with the reader's microphone. I kept hearing this clicking sound and gave up after the first chapter.
