Chip from Florida is amazing! Pity there wasn't more of his reading! The Russian lady and at times the Asian college student were so hard to understand I had to go find a copy of the book and read those chapters to fill in.
great story, great readers! the alternative readings solve previous problems with understanding foreign accents
Its hard to understand..
i enjoy the acting reading, the story the book... very good. i am sure that if i would have start tesding bymiself not listening i would have abandon it after few chapters... thanks for making me enjoy it.
Some of the readers where very hard to understand and required these chapters to be listened to a couple of times to maintain the plot this distracted from the enjoyment.
Awesome classic, lonnngggg by worth every minute
I nearly gave up after Chapter 6 - as I couldn't understand the non-English accents. Yes they are volunteers BUT there should be some screening for intelligibility.
Excellent book, cleverly crafted. Well read.
Ok what everyone has said is true, some of the readers are awful, truly, you have to strain to understand them. But most of them are passable and even great and the story is so amazing I personally thought it was well worth it!
Enjoyed almost all the readersame but a few chapters were hard to get through but since its voulenteers I appreciate it all
