    The Swiss Family Robinson has delighted generations of readers with its exciting tale of a family which, though shipwrecked, displays “the right stuff” and builds a charming colony that later, they do not want to leave. Cut off from the comforts and companionship of other humans, they use a familiarity with natural history and biology to find the resources and build the tools to construct a canoe, weave cloth, irrigate a garden, and turn an immense hollow tree into a lofty house with a spiral staircase.

    What disappointed you about The Swiss Family Robinson?

    This audio book claimed to be unabridged but whole sections were left out, names changed, etc. This was not what I was expecting when I bought it.


    Has The Swiss Family Robinson turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I still love classic literature but I will be more careful in the future to make sure what I pay for is truly unabridged.


    What didn’t you like about James Conlan’s performance?

    The narrator was monotone and pompous sounding. He made this book sound boring and the characters arrogant.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I could return this book. I will not ever listen to it.
