Is this narration done by a computer? It is terrible

The audiobook is unbearable to listen to. The first two books of the series have different narrators and are enjoyable. This one makes me want to smack the guy. The pauses are in the wrong places and the voice emphasizes the wrong words. It is bad.

The reader was choppy

He didn't read sentences fluidly! He would pause at the wrong times. The reader can sometimes make our break a story.

Great Story, Horrible Reading

What did you love best about Anne of the Island?

I loved the story, I thought it was fun and a good continuation of Anne of Green Gables.This is Anne's college years and is a nice story about Anne growing up.

How could the performance have been better?

Was the narrator a robot? I have been listening to LM Montgomery's Anne series and the constant mispronouncing of Avonlea drove me crazy. This was the cheapest version of the story, and it shows: the narrator does not do justice to the story. I would recommend listening to a different version.

Don't bother with this version

This is the WORST READ Audible book ever. I'm going to ask for my money back (of course it was only 95 cents, but still).

awful reader

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A better reader and recording. This was poor sound quality and the reader was so monotone we couldn't make it through even a few min before turning it off.

Don't purchase this version

Would you try another book from Lucy Maud Montgomery and/or Alan Munro?

I love Lucy Maud Montgomery's work, but this narration was terrible. I couldn't stand more than an hour of it as I felt like it was butchering a beautiful story. I'm purchasing another version instead as it was so awful.

Love the story, horrible narration

To be fair, this narrator didn’t stand a chance after Sarah Mary narrated the first two books. She did such a wonderful job evoking pictures of the words read into the mind. I had terrible difficulty listening to this book because the narration was so boring and awkward. Might have as well been read my the voice of the adults in the peanuts cartoons it was that bad. I was able to get through the book, but if you have time to read it, I highly suggest that over listening to the audible version- unless Sarah Mary does a version of it. Seriously Audible- consider it- I’d buy that version if it existed.

Mismatched reader

After 10 minutes I had to turn it off. Could not listen to what sounded like an older gentleman with a gruff voice speaking as Anne.

Went back online and purchased a different version

Terrible narrator

All off the books about Anne Shirley are wonderful, but this narration is killing all the pleasure. It is absolutely impossible to follow the text as Alan Munro makes pauses in random places and reads everything with no emotions whatsoever.

Dull or Poorly Portrayed

The story seems dull to me although I suspect that was just a case of a poor voice actor choice. After all who chooses a man to read a book that contains mostly female characters. He just has no hope of doing it justice.

Anne of the Island

The story is absolutely lovely however the narrator has an extremely staccato voice that is unbearable to listen to comfortably. it's worth spending more money to buy this book narrated by someone with more talent.
