This narrator is simply awesome! His voices are clear and varied, and for one character he even manages to speak accompanied by a consumptive cough! What can I say for the content other than that they're called classics for a reason. Everything means something, and there is beauty in such resolution.
This is the *worst* narrator I've ever heard (so far). He has long (several seconds long) pauses after nearly every sentence as well as sometimes mid-sentence. At times it sounds as if he's eating, or choking on his saliva. There is no cadence to his speech, confusing voice inflection, no innovation for character voices and ZERO dedication to the story making it extremely difficult to follow. I agree with the reviewer who said he read 'as if he didn't care to'. I'm not terribly picky, I don't care if I hear pages turn or occasional background noise, but the *story* has to *sound good*. Usually the RNIB books are awesome, so don't let one horrendous read turn you off of the rest.
