"Michael Taylor is an enthusiastic and spirited storyteller. He draws on a seemingly limitless store of voices for the many characters." (AudioFile)
If you. like. the way. I punctuate. you will. love the. narration.
Michael Taylor is a terrible narrator. I literally would get a pressure headache with the way he reads the story. He was four voices: Deep and slow, pausing between EVERY word; His normal voice which would do fine reading a newspaper; a high-pitched, whiney voice, like that of an old miner from '49 gold rush; and a Minnesota grandma voice (don'cha knoo). His voice is an injustice to an audible subscriber and to this book. I feel ripped-off.
I almost didn't purchase this book because of the poor reviews on the narration, but I noticed that there was a different narrator for the other books in the series and I thought the content looked interesting. I am glad I did purchase it.The narration was truly horrible, easily the worse that I've heard on Audible, but by the end of the first half of the download I had grown somewhat numb to it. The story itself was really good. I liked the way the author set real, believable characters in a plausible representation of the pre-flood world. I found the read thought provoking and enjoyable. I guess you could buy the book and bypass the narration, but either way, it was worth the purchase price.
The narration is AWFUL. I did read the other reviews before I purchased this book; I just thought that people were being too picky and critical. Nope. It is just threat bad. Imagine listening to a brain damaged William Shatner reading a book out loud for the first time - not the first time out loud, the first time EVER... for 16 HOURS. I made it through 20 minutes and quit. SERIOUSLY.
I ran across this story by accident, but I really, really enjoyed this story. I can't wait until my boys are bigger so I can read it to them. It took while to get used to the narrator - too many pregnant pauses. But I still had a good time listening to this.
I loved this book. In fact i'm going to go buy the book and read it i loved listening to it so much. It made me laugh,cry, and really use my imagination with all the ( well i don't want to give it away) so i just recommend if u like a great listen that has journies in it i say get this book.
The reader was horrible
Switch readers maybe a Luke danles
Read the next one
It's a good story even if your not a believer in God. If you can't get past it being that it is fiction I feel sorry for your Library. It's gonna miss out on some good and entertning story's
