horrible narration

The narration was so monotone and uninteresting it made a wonderful and exciting book seem boring. I downloaded this for my son and he could not get into and i couldn't blame him.

great story, awful narration

What would have made The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle better?

a different narrator - this is the one time i didn't sample before buying... bad, horrible, terrible idea. we didn't even make it 5min before the kids were begging to turn it off. what a waste of a credit!!!!

Great book ruined by a horrible reading

The voice and performance of this audio book is so horrible the book is not possible to listen to. My kids refused to listen to it because they couldn't stand the woman's voice. I tried a year later and couldn't make it past the first page.
Great book but you're going to have to read this one.
