    "Very poor sound quality"

    The sound quality of this recording is so bad it is unlistenable. The books are among my childhood favourites (from my grandfather's bookshelves). But I can't listen to this - it has been a total waste of money and I am extremely disappointed. As a new user I did not notice that it only rated a maximum of 2 for sound quality until after purchase, but even that is extremely generous.

    "Not Hitchcock"

    I think I chose to purchase this audio book because of the Hitchcock film of the same name. I hadn't ever read the actual book and so didn't know what I was getting into. Alas, the whole experience was disappointing because of how dated everything was: story, narration and sound quality. Sigh. I had high hopes.

    "Thirty Nine Steps"

    This is a very poor recording. All my previous experience with Audible has been excellent but this recording is shockingly poor. The quality of the sound is poor and it needs re-balancing also the public school narrator appears to be having a Gin and Tonic and a large cigar whilst reading.

    "39 Steps"

    I have to agree withthe previous review, a very poor quality recording, very difficult to listen to in the car, unlike my other audible downloads. Prehaps Audible could post a notice to customers so they are at least aware and can make an informed judgement.
    The tone of the narrators voice simply exascerbates the problem.

    "Bad recording DO NOT BUY IT"

    I totally agree with previous reviewers - the quality of this recording - even after downloading it in Enhanced format is awful. Audible should remove this recording from its catalogue. I wish there was a way to check the recordings before buying - just being able to listen to a minute or so would make such a difference especially as listeners find different readers are better to listen to than others.
