    I cannot not blame Sir Ian McKellen for the performance but the people who put it together should be ashamed!! The tone sound of McKellen's voice changes from chapter to chapter (yes chapter not Book) and when I first heard it I thought it was a different reader.

    The Odyssey has 44 Books in it, this audio version has 24 chapters. One would think they correspond. DO NOT ASSUME THEY DO! Example - Book 8 begins in the middle of Chapter 6. Go figure!

    It's the classic adventure of a madman: the "renowned Don Quixote de la Mancha". He attacks windmills, believes a peasant girl to be a lady, and fancies that he is a knight-errant, dedicated to righting wrongs and rescuing damsels in distress.

    WHY use an Englishman for a Spaniard's voice? I did not even get through an hour of this one. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY unless the narrators voice does not matter.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.
