Haphazard Reading

(3 Sterne)

This recording was done by a team of readers with each chapter taken on by a different person and in a different style. At least two of the readers were very good and they sounded more like they were reciting their own story rather than reading a script. Most, however, gave uncomfortable performances with mispronounced words, pauses where they didn't belong, and vocal inflections that did not match with the scenes being read.

So not his best work !!!

This is so not Wells’ best work ! It’s more plot scripted hack “trash for cash” than even the modern day romance novels are sitting on the bottom row of paperback books in an Arkansas truck stop !!! I can not believe I wasted time reading/listening to the entire book, then wasted more doing this review ...
