You get what you pay for.

What disappointed you about The Scarlet Letter?

The narrator's voice. I am pretty easy going but the narrator's lisp-like impediment grated on my nerves after a while. The audio book was $2.95 but, WOW, it was not a bargain. I need to take the time to screen my selections a little better. I've read the book and I saw the price and I figured,

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Scarlet Letter?

I wasn't able to listen to all of it because of the narrator's voice.

What didn’t you like about Curtis Sisco’s performance?

He has a monotone voice with a lisp-like quality to it.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I love the story. I only wish they could have chosen a different narrator. Sorry, Curtis.

Any additional comments?

Buyers beware.

The Scarlet Letter read by Curtis Sisco

I wish I would have read the review first, this is a horrible audio. it is so slow. It sounds worse that a recording of a robot. I would never buy any work by this man again or suggest anyone to buy it. I am reading it for school and i am so disappointed that it is ruining the story

this reader sucks!

I am reading this for school, and is sounds like they recorded all the words then played them all strung together. It sounds horrible and it is read really slowly.

Bad Narration

I could not finish this because of the narration. It sounded like he was just reading one word at a time without any flow or context
