    "don't waste your money on this production"
    What disappointed you about The Prince and the Pauper?

    The story itself was fine, it was the narrator that made this listening experience bad. I love listening to audiobooks, and this was the worst I've heard. The narrator mispronounces/falters through words, sometimes he corrects the mispronounced words, sometimes he doesn't. There are also times where he has very long pauses between words/sentences. If this had been my first experience with an audible book I don't think I would have tried again. Luckily it wasn't.

    "Great Buy for the Money"

    There's no need to say that the book itself is excellent. It is Mark Twain and is rightly included in this "Great Literary Classics" collection. I really enjoyed Andrew Timothy's reading of this novel. It is not the sound quality of other, more expensive, audiobooks. He does stuble through a few words, but I may not have even noticed it if other reviewers hadn't pointed it out. It wasn't annoying or distracting. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely be looking for other books narrated by Timothy.

    "Not credible but a good listen anyway"

    I have to admit that I always thought this was a children?s tale. Although the story is about children, it was clearly not written for them. There are scenes of great cruelty and hideous execution and one gripping episode when the young prince is kidnapped and tied up, expecting at any moment to be murdered by a homicidal priest. It?s a good story, even if very far fetched. Very different from other Mark Twain works,which has lead me to revisit some of his other books.
