just purchased this today & have been listening for a few hours, the pace of the narrator is a little slower compared to what i am used but he is excellent for this story & voices are great, i have tried "reading" grapes of wrath many times but could never get through it.
the only draw back for this audio book is the startling harmonica music at the end of each chapter, it is so loud it shakes you out of the mood the narrator has created, i had to rush to turn down the volume & then turn it back up to hear the narrator again.
i would already have given this 5 stars but the music is just so annoying, i am listening to it on my kindle it may be better if i listen to it on my laptop when i can possibly have the volume spikes adjusted.
overall excellent for only 1 credit
i love audio to much to try the print version of anything with rare exceptions
the differences between Elizabeth and Henry the VIII
i love davina porter, as a narrator she is ideal for british history.
listen to the autobiography of henry the viii first and then listen to this one, if you are a history buff like i am you will love it.
the preface was nearly impossible to understand sounding as if the narrator had swallowed the microphone, i am finding the the sound quality is not very good at all and i am glad i paid only about $2 for it
i feel that if the audio was cleaned up a bit the narrator would not be able to ruin the story so much
this book is just amazing, funny & truly charming..i listen to a great deal of audio & i can not imagine this book read by another narrator.
