Aweful! The music drowns out the narrator (who is actually good) and the special effects are so bad that the listener is too distracted and annoyed to follow the poem. And, the narrator is speaking in old English but the music is New Age with drums, piano, etc. At times the sound is upbeat when the story is telling about death! What?! Absolute disrespect for the poem; the producer and sound mixer were not considerate of the poem. Plus, it has too many breaks, long stretches of music without any narration, weird dramatic echoes of repeated phrases, and terrible selections of music. This company doesn't deserve my money, because in my opinion they ruin a great piece of poetry.
The narrator and the poem are good.
Nothing. He did a good job. It was the production that was bad, with the music and special effects.
Cut out the music, special effects, and long breaks! Then I would buy this book again.
Please produce this poem differently.
No, I would not recommend this audiobook because the narration is disgusting and distracting. The narrator sounds as if he's drowning in his own saliva---so nasty. It sounds like he's never flossed or brushed before, and perhaps has gingivitis, explaining why he has so much spit in his mouth and has to swallow every few seconds. His wet mouth even causes his speech to have a lisp. The publisher should have commissioned a narrator with an articulate, dry, and clear speech.
Excellent information; however, horrible presentation.
His disgusting articulation.
Yes, disgust, because of the sound of his speech.
Yes, record this audiobook with another narrator, and never allow this author to narrate his books again.
