Narrators aren’t very good on this one.

Best to read the book!

(2 stars)

Virginia Woolf's style and language are exquisite but a very good book is ruined by four chapters that are so badly read that I had to skip two chapters in the middle, and I'll have to download the last two chapters to finish it. I rarely write reviews, and I hate to post a bad review of people who are volunteers, but those monotonous halting voices drained all expression and meaning from the text, and made it too hard for me to follow.

most narrators were fine except for parts 3 and 4

A Terrible Book.

(1 stars)

This is possibly the worst book ever written. I have not encountered a book this bad, since I read "Peter and Jane ".

well written

(5 stars)

I recommend playback speed for readers Locke and Shasta be increased, otherwise fine job reading.

(1.5 stars)

I agree with the other commentators; this is not the version you are looking for.

Reader Jim is a horrible reader. It's too bad, others were fine.

(2 stars)

Narration is bad, especially sections 3 and 4.
