Content; GREAT! Performance.. .not so much😁

Not terrible...but, close.😁
The narrator doesn't know the language. Hopefully, there's something on Audible, covering the "range" of work, contained herein, performed adequately. Disappointing.

Don't buy this version.

Lee Howard it terrible. He has no acting ability. Every character sounds exactly like every other character.

Complete Works of Mark Twain

I tried several times to listen and could not understand the story. The reader was also quite mono-tone which did not help the story at all. I have no desire to try listening again. It was a waste of my first credit.

Waste.

The narration is stiff and stilted, unbelievably dry and without inflection, pause, characterization, or emotion. It does a real disservice to the source material.

Mind-numbing Monotone

If it were my first, I would not listen to audiobooks. Made me hate life.

great collection horrible narration

This is a great collection of Mark Twains stories, but the narration is absolutely horrible. Some reviews state monotone, but that's not accurate. there is inflection, but the narrator has no voices. every character has the same voice, and since this style of writing is not filled with he said, and she said, at every turn, conversations get to be very confusing.

The other thing to note is that the audio book itself does not have the names of the books in the chapter list, so getting to a specific book is more complicated than simply opening the audio book and selecting the book or chapter you may want. I believe there is a pdf with the book, and I know that there is at least 1 comment that has the chapter list, but it is annoying that it's not part of the audio book itself.

Way to end this collection!

Mr. Clemens loved making witty characters. My favorite story was The Mysterious Stranger! The most intelligent human character of all these novels was clearly Hank Morgan. There were plenty of dummies too! What a great ending to 2020!

Unexpectedly Entertaining

I just have to say the burgler alarm story in chapter 42 is alone worth the money I have listen to that story 42 times and find it simply some of the best use of the English language and simply the best poetically writing i habe ever had the pleasure of reading and hearing. Narrator choice of words was superfluous the whole Book
was Heterogeneous! I loved it

Great stories but...

I wish the narrator would do the voices. Its hard to know who's talking when there is no difference in tone or voice or character

Big commitment to listen to it all but worth it.

so delightful to hear all the stories I never finished in school. The narrator is excellent and made it worth the commitment to finish the whole 58 hours.
