We use these audible books to supplement the literature our high school daughter must get through, so we are actively listening, rather than listening soley for entertainment. The accents took some getting used to and the speed at which the lines were spoken made it difficult at times to follow, but we found the recording helpful.
Let's face it - The Scarlet Letter is difficult material to get through - there is little dialog and little action. We use these audible recordings to supplement our daughter's high school American Literature class and this recording was a life saver. The narrator seems a bit subdued in the beginning, but over time his voice takes on a cadance that makes listening easier and understanding greater. For active listening, rather than entertainment, we would recommend this recording highly. Our daughter was able to get through a great deal of material with better understanding by using this additional tool. If you're looking to help your student, this will make a difference
