LibriVox repackaged?

This collection is obviously a really great deal. 70 hrs of content for less then a dollar? That's a no brainer purchase! The problem I have with the collection, aside from a lack of overall production value, is that it seems to be a repacking of LibriVox recordings. There are actually several chapters throughout where the narrator even plugs LibriVox. It sort of cheapens the experience. I think the narrator does a serviceable job. IE - not offensive to the listener. But it is definitely not a compelling listen in terms of acting and delivery. Just passable. I also think the editing could have been better. Lots of breath noise and pops in-between. Again, minor grievance and not overly distracting from enjoying the read.

Narration is AWFUL

This narrator has a grating unpleasant voice. Skip this one. It is horrible. I love the story but can’t endure his voice. I’m 45 mins in and done with listening.

Classic Story

Narrator is articulate but entirely too dramatic, resulting in a singsong delivery (with a few unforgivable mispronunciations.)

Need new narrator

I’m only into part 2 of this famous book. I didn’t have parents that read me stories before bedtime or anytime. I wanted to see what I was missing. I feel like another narrator with adults in mind would help. Yes it’s a child’s book. And the movie terrified my childhood with scary flying monkeys. I just think this narrator is boring.

Bland

I am not sure if it is because I saw the movie a million times but this audiobooks lacks everything. The storyteller is very bland and no at all enjoyable to listen to. This is a real snooze. Glad it was a freebie.

The interesting adventures in OZ of Dorothy and Co

I had never read all the OZ books when I was a kid, so it was interesting to see what all Dorothy and friends got up to after she met the Wizard. The reader for this audible version was only decent at first, but improved considerably as he went along.

I got it for Free but would pay that money for it

Honestly its the Wizard of Oz!! Why the heck not!!! Plus it was my free book but I would pay money for this collection so good!! Highly recommend this collection. If you love the Wizard of Oz you will find there is more in the land of oz then one might think. They're plenty of stories to keep you entertained. I have audiobooks in the background when I'm home just to have some noise and found I was interested in what was going on. highly recommend it!!! Treat yourself to these classics that all fans of books should read/listen too :)

The narrator rly grows on you, great performance.

I fully enjoyed the narrator Sean Murphy's performance. He's enthusiastic, clear, and he knows how to deliver dialogue. If he is off putting at first, I urge you to give it a chapter, and it will soon become quite enjoyable. I've listened to the entire Oz collection and I'm eager to find more classics by this narrator. Thanks Sean Murphy! (he seems to perform under the name Brian Kelly occasionally, or perhaps its an error on Amazon's side ?).

Stories about OZ I didn't know

This is a great collection of books by L.Frank Baum. I didn't even know L.Frank Baum wrote more than one OZ book! All these books are just as good and intriguing as the Wonderful Wizard of OZ!

So slow

The narration really let these books down. Absolutely garbage, belongs in the trash 🗑. If I could send it back I would but I got it on offer. I do not recommend this I anyway at all. It just made me swear at an inanimate object. Shame on me.

Awful Narator

I cant listen to this book after purchasing it due to the reader. Inflections all in the wrong place. Really bad reader. Avoid any books read by this person
