please, please, please stop using the character voices, especially the female ones. The character voices are extremely distracting.

Thank you for a lovely reading!


(5 stars)

I completely agree with the former reveiwer: "the character voices are harsh and grating to the ears". However, I find it to be a minor fault. On the whole the reading is coherent and moving. I have enjoyed it tremendously, and I'm grateful to the reader for his efforts. I would also like to applaud him for reading the whole book, which adds to my enjoyment as a listener (compared to the case of several readers sharing the task).

disappointed

It was a good story. His regular reading voice was pleasnt enough to make the story enjoyable, however the character voices he used were harsh and grating to my ears. The voices were also distracting from the story, especially while trying to interperate the figuritive language of the indians.


(4 stars)

Much better reader than some of the readers in the other version, which made me switch to this one, however I would suggest that volunteers please not try to imitate different characters voices! We do thank you for reading though. We get what we “pay for”. Enjoyed the book.

Great book, and great reading! Thank you!


(4.5 stars)

Thoroughly enjoyable reader did a good job

Classic novel, good reader except for certain voices.


(3.5 stars)

First and foremost, I very much appreciate that the same reader volunteered to read for the entire book. The reader does a good job, and I am certain that the time period dialects must have been challenging. I just wish the reader had not tried to use voices for the characters. I could not give it more than 3 1/2 stars because Cora Munroe sounds like Grover from Sesame Street, and I just could not get past that! This is a classic and I got through it for the love of the story, but it was tough to stay immersed whenever Grover, I mean Cora, spoke.

This is a Story I have long waited to hear. Reference to it comes up often in those interested in the pursuits of the Scout. I am grateful to the orator for his work committing this to a digital voice record so those without the free time to read it can take it in. The novel stands as a harrowing tale of life on the frontier during the French and Indian war where both the British and French advanced on territory of the First Nations and looked to assert European will over the land and people
