Completely unusable

For extended periods of time throughout the audible you aren’t able to hear any words at all it just completely cuts out and you only hear a word every 10 seconds or more.

Classic Story, Bad Recording

I don’t have a whole lot to say regarding the story itself. It’s a classic American story. The recording of this audiobook on the otherhand is subpar. The narration is not great but it’s fine, but the audio has a lot of noise in it and they clearly tried to fix it by apply a noise gate. This leads to quieter sections of the dialogue to cut in and out making those parts unlistenable. I had to follow along with the book itself in order to know what was being said.

Terrible recording

Great story but you can’t hear half the dialogue so I returned it. It’s a shame that it’s the only recording of this title available.
