I loved this book as a kid and want to re-read it but the narrorator is hard to listen too. Very painful and makes the book hard to get through
He is horrible
In general, I love listening to author's read their work, and William Golding's personal introduction to this audiobook was very interesting, but he was a poor narrator. He doesn't read at an even tempo, and sometimes swallows words, and overall doesn't seem that into reading his book. The story was a disappointment as a long time fan of this genre - doesn't bring much new to the genre fifty years later.
I couldn't get through this book because the narrator seemed so bored with the story. I'm going to try again reading it the old fashioned way.
His introduction. Plus, I've always hated the ending, but I hate it a little less with his explanation.
The performance isn't so great. Many of the characters have the same voice. And the audio was scratchy. Sounded as if it had been recorded on the tape recorder I had when I was 8. If you're listening as a substitute for reading, then it's fine.
This is just a bunch of noises when i downloaded, do not waist your credits on this rip off!
Another classic I'd never gotten around to reading. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Depicts well the genesis of the inevitable power struggles that have to occur in any manner of a developing civilization.
Yes because it shows human nature at its best
graphic image of a murder
best way to show human nature
AUDIBLE MAKES READING POSSIBLE AND EASY FOR ME...I AM VISUALLY IMPAIRED. I WISH THEY HAD ALL THE BOOKS I WANT I WOULD SNAP THEM UP!
I GUESS SO. IT ENTERTAINED ME. BUT I THINK IT IS A BOOK FOR BOYS.
OK I GUESS HE DOES NOT HAVE THE GREATEST NARRATING VOICE.
I DID LIKE THE AUTHOR'S COMMENTS AT THE END OF THE BOOK AS IT IS INTERESTING TO HEAR WHAT THE AUTHOR HAS TO SAY ABOUT HIS/HER CREATION.
This book is a classic. As a child, like most boys, I sometimes wondered about life on a deserted island. The adventures would be awesome! I think those daydreams were closer to "The Wonderful World of Disney" daydreams. This book is probably much closer to the reality of being stranded on an island. Its a good book and worth your time to listen to it. The author narrates this book and he really should stick to writing and leave narration to others, but he does okay. It takes a little to get past this, so stick with him and give it a listen.
man kind natural animal
it made me think about our human instincts
