Horrible. Not worth even 1 star.

Narration was horrible but worse than that was the distraction of the constant background music!

So awful I can't believe it.

I don't know how this made it onto Audible. Sounds like it was recorded in a locked room in the basement. Narrator is terrible and terrible music background.

Turn down the music!

Was the loud music on purpose to drown out the terrible narrator? Hmm yes no

Hard to listen to the “reader” with that horrible background music playing over and over!

Hard to hear the story

It was very difficult to hear the narrator because his voice was so soft and also because the music playing in the background was so overpowering. It was especially difficult to listen to in my car.

Unlistenable

Somebody decided to record themselves reading a book. The narration is bad; the background music is constant, misplaced, and too loud. So much so, that you can't block it out to even enjoy the brilliance of Agatha Christie. I would have exchanged the book had I known that was an option.

narration

Could barely hear the narrator because the background music was over powering. Enjoyed the book otherwise.

Really Distracting Music Throughout

I can’t even listen to this. I don’t mind it read in an American accent but I’m at a loss as to why there is music accompanying the entire reading. And mostly at about the same volume as the narration. I found it really difficult to focus on the story and won’t bother continuing. I wish I could give it zero stars. Thanks for the recommendation, Audible! :(

Music? Distraction

You can’t even hear the narration through the background noise!! The American narrator sounds drunk definitely not worth buying

Awful.

There is continuous synthesised music under the reading which makes it unbearable to listen to. The sound quality is poor. The narrator reads badly and stumbles frequently. Not of a quality I’d expect on audible

Poor sound quality

I was unable to hear the narrator because of the background noise. In my opinion this book is not suitable to be on audible. Have returned it.

Awful audio

For some reason they have put a music bed underneath the narration which is already muffled. Makes it unbearable. Assuming the music bed is to cover up for the poor recording of the sound. Unlistenable. What is most disappointing is this was a recommendation from Amazon. Don’t bother.

Not to my taste

I didn’t enjoy this I felt that having an American accent reading what are very English stories was difficult to listen too

Do not buy this ! Unlistenable

The music makes it impossible to hear. The narrator is also very poor. This product should not be sold.

Dreadful

I don’t usually write reviews but have to say this was appalling, dreadful music playing behind the narrator that is so loud you cannot hear the story. This version is an affront to Agatha Christie’s literature!
