the volume and overall sound quality is extremely poor.

jabberwocky

(4 Sterne)

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe. 'Beware the Jabberwock, my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!' He took his vorpal sword in hand: Long time the manxome foe he sought -- So rested he by the Tumtum tree, And stood a while in thought. And, as in uffish thought he stood, The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame, Came whiffling through the tulgey wood, And burbled as it came! One two! One two! And through and through The vorpal blade went snicker-snack! He left it dead, and with its head He went galumphing back. 'And hast thou slain the Jabberwock? Come to my arms, my beamish boy! Oh frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!' He chortled in his joy. 'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe.

Shortlist of favourites

(5 Sterne)

CS - The only female reader to make my list. Very good. The only flaw being that the opening and closing verses sound like they're part of a different story. DRB - Read slowly and deliberately - i liked the changes in tempo and emphasis. FEB - creepy. MAC - Very consistant, less energy than the other recordings. The kind of reading you'd expect from a novel. TD - Mostly Scottish accent, with plenty of energy, enthusiasm and character. By far the most impressive reading on the list. WH - Very well read. Minimum of fluff.

I really enjoyed listening to Claire Cornelia read Jabberwocky, it was so fun to listen to, good job to her! I didn't honestly care for any other readers after that, but great job everybody!

the first episode, chapter thing has poor quality

(4 Sterne)

The whole thing is not bad though just the first part so Don’t worry! Also Claire Cornelia was so cute!
