Reviews

Good book, well read


(4.5 stars)

I don't know why others have spoken badly of this narrator. Maybe people who have never been outside their own neighbourhood? Maybe too much American TV? l had no trouble understanding Ms. Branda and enjoyed the relaxed pace.

In my view the problem here is not so much the “accent” of the reader but the quality of the recording itself.

READ IT INSTEAD

SOMEBODY PLEASE DO A 2nd VERSION. Gave up before first chapter was finished. I was straining every nerve to understand the words. Not only was the reading made unintelligible by her thick accent...the narrator whispered. Who runs this service? Who is the decision maker? Does anyone take seriously the constant flood of complaints about atrocious performances? The LibriVox staff is strange. They are tone deaf or they don’t give a damn. Certainly they have no respect for the books they are slaughtering for posterity.

Love to hear this book with a proper reader. Im afraid this reader is absolute…
