the best version

this is absolutely the best reading of mountains of madness. The reader put such a great inflection on the fear expressed by the narrator. unlike the other versions, this one is unabridged, as it should be read.

just awful

I really wanted to turn the book off several times. The person who read the book was over dramatic.

Interesting story, over dramatic narrator

Unfortunately the narrator was the biggest drawback for me. He was WAY over dramatic throughout the entire book. It made it difficult for me to know when something was actually suspenseful action versus just an over dramatic description of a statue. I will avoid this narrator for future books.
