    "Dramatisation"

    This should be more clearly identified as a dramatisation.. only after listening, I needed to go looking for the description and eventually found the text, "full cast audio adventure".

    I've just finished listening to the excellent War of the Worlds, read by Sean Barrett, so I was a little disappointed to hear several actors in this, instead of just a narrator.

    As for the audio itself, I found it quite difficult to listen to. The background sound effects and music sound as if someone has tried to clean up the background hiss.. but the result is little gaps of silence that are far more distracting than any hiss of low quality.

    These little gaps of silence even break up the effects and music, to give the irritating effect of a flimsy headphone connection (and no, it's not my headphones).

    "The Time Machine"

    Most of what is wrong about this audiobook is the poor quality audio recording the listener has to endure fror the last half of the book. Michael York does a nice job. I suggest finding another version of this classic to listen to.
