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

    The most stilted, unnatural narration I've ever endured. Almost like a machine. Utterly distracting and horrible. I will avoid anything narrated by this chap.

    "Audible?"
    Would you try another book written by Henry Rider Haggard or narrated by Alan Munro?

    I have only recently tried audible books. The first two were Harry Potter 1&2. Both easy to hear. This one is too faint to be of any use


    What will your next listen be?

    Doubtful if I'll bother.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Better sound.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from King Solomon's Mines?

    Not applicable.
