I have enjoyed reading several of Chima's books. I am TERRIBLY disappointed by the audible version, however. The reading and the directing are AWFUL. The mouth noises the reader makes (smacking, gulping, etc) suggest an amateur reader and director. The noises are so bad that my son gags and cannot listen. And the heavy breathing into the microphone is terribly distracting. Listen to Hunger Games or Percy Jackson to hear a good reader! I hope future books from this author are NOT read by this reader.
I wish Jesse Bernstein was the reader for the Heros of Olympus series as well.
I love these books. My kids and I have read All of them, so I thought we could share them on Audible, but we cannot. The reader breathing into the microphone was so bad that I had to listen in small chunks to get through the story. And my son deciced it just was not worth it. He is not the worst reader I have encountered here, but I will definitely NOT download anything else he reads. I sincerely hope that the Brotherband series are read by someone else.
