    Story
    "Fine Book, Awful Narrator"
    Would you listen to Crime and Punishment [Trout Lake Media Edition] again? Why?

    No. The book was fine. It is over 100 years old and shows some wear, but is an interesting look into the past. My real issue is that the narrator is just so bad. Let me explain. He has a fine voice for audible. But he emphasizes words and syllables in the middle of sentences and pauses in the middle of sentences for no reason, that the sentence loses its meaning or causes confusion. He doesn't just do it on occasion, it is throughout the entire book. It made listening to his version of this book so unenjoyably that I will never listen to a book with this narrator again.


    What didn’t you like about Alan Munro’s performance?

    Terrible. Why pause in the middle of sentences for no reason? Why the emphasis on words or syllables in the middle of sentences? How did this get past the producer?


    Any additional comments?

    I'm very surprised as the production quality of this book seems well done that the performance by the reader was so bad.

    "Could they have found a worse narrator?"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I think I liked the story. It's hard to know for sure because trying to follow the narrator was impossible.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Alan Munro’s performances?

    I don't think so, no.


    Any additional comments?

    I have to listen to this in short increments to offset the rage that fills me trying to follow this narrator. It's like he was narrating a Russian translation in English but had just starting learning the Russian language very recently. Pausing mid sentence (mid word even), then no inflection, then constant inflection, then the same bad Russian accent for 3 different characters. Sometimes it's so confusing it's like he is choosing randoms sentences to read. I find myself rewinding after five minutes because I have no idea what just happened.

    Story
    "Munro's reading is horrid."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is a fantastic book. It is one of my absolutely favorites. I really looked forward to the audio version and spent some time comparing the different performances available. I finally settled on Munro's reading and it was a huge mistake. So much so that I could not get beyond the first chapter.


    What didn’t you like about Alan Munro’s performance?

    The reading is choppy. It does not come across as such in the little snippet that is given in the trial, but Munro reads each sentence with a pause in-between. Just dreadful. Mechanical. No feeling of the material at all.

    "Cheap and awesome."

    Love it! Great performance. Classic story. The mind after crime with great subplots. Groundbreaking for it's time but still potent for today.
