    "Great!"

    I've always liked this story which I've read many times since boyhood, as well as loving the movie adapted from it.
    I can't imagine this narrative being done better & it carried me along like the movie's imagery, yet with just the spoken word.

    Story
    "Good Narration"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The narrator is great but reads the story slowly. I bought this to use in my classroom due to my limited imitation English accents. This was a good choice just moves a bit too slow.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Pick up the pace a little.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    undecided


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    yes.... it is an old movie and I will watch it.


    Any additional comments?

    This story is where the word and concept of Shangri-La came from. This story took the Shambalah legend and broadcast it too the world.

    "Extrordinary, classic book."

    Very good book and a wonderful reader. Story was not predictable, and yet thought provoking.

    Story
    "Story is Great! Narration is nearly unlistenable."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Having read the story in paperback some years ago, I looked forward to listening to it in audiobook format. OUCH! This narration is the worst I've heard. Try as I might, I just can't wrap my brain around it. It's the cadence. It was just about "unlistenable". One hour in and couldn't take it any more.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Michael de Morgan’s performances?

    No chance.

    Story
    "An excellent tale, well told"

    Lost Horizon is a classic tale of a mystical land where people live long lives and believe in "moderation" in most everything. I couldn't put it down. It is extremely well written, and the narrator's quiet voice fit the tale perfectly. Well worth a credit.

    Story
    "Thought provoking -- well narrated."

    A mysterious valley--perhaps real--existing within the protection of high mountains holds things of beauty and wisdom. The story leaves many ideas to ponder. Maybe even more timely today than when it was written!

    "Meh"

    Made out to be such a great read, but it failed to deliver. It seemed like the plot was good foreplay, but the direction it quickly took never came through. It left this reader very unsatisfied. The reading performance didn't compensate.

    "Great Read and Listen"

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this strange old novel. Good job by the reader. The novel is better than the two movies based on it.
