Not much more to say than the title.
But the sound quality for the book almost makes it impossible to follow. if you turn up the volume the background noise/other people talking is unbearable. Turn the volume down and you can barely hear her voice. Now I might sound a little dramatic, but as far I remember it was the worst audio books iv'e listened to. And thats saying something cause I hate reading school assigned books, so I go the lazy way and listen. Anyway, if I had a choice to do it again, I wouldn't. But if you're like me and absolutely hate reading force read books. I'd pay the extra money and get a CD, most of the time those are good quality. Anytime you download a Audio file from the internet you take a risk for the quality.
Audible, is not necessarily responsible for the poor sound quality of the book, so i'm not berating Audible.com, (as a matter of fact everything went very smoothly with the transaction and so forth), that would be like saying Wal-Mart is a bad grocery store because you didn't like the taste of one of their products.
Now the book its self is amazing. I just swallowed the pain of reading, and read the book, very great book. At times I couldn't put it down.
Turns out I said a lot more than the title. Hope this review helps
This book is a classic, i read it when it was first released. So when I saw that it was Audio I thought great! But I was really disappointed with this audio version. The sound quality was terrible, It left out big portions of the story. If you ever get a chance to read it you will really enjoy it.
What an amazing telling of a depiction in our country's history. The writer makes the story come alive by changing words on a page to words that dance in your head as you read/hear the story. This writer is extremely talented and I am happy that I accidentally happened upon this marvelous piece of work.
I wish the quality of the audio was better. I have read the book and the story is amazing.
This sounds like it was digitized using a pen-sized mp3 recorder in a 1978 Oldsmobile from an 8track while travelling through a wind tunnel and someone was also playing Outburst in the backseat. How can Audible let this amazing, classic story (far superior to "The Help") suffer like this? Make a new Audible Production. Talk to the publisher about masters. Buy the CD edition and rip it. Cause this version is complete and utter poop.
