volume levels are a problem

Unfortunately, this is one of those books where the narrator's voice gets quiet, but then when switching characters gets loud. it makes it really difficult to listen to.

The Voices

Please, I love Paddington but please change the voices back. Paddington sounds like an old man. And all the browns sound weird.

Volume gets overly loud from really quiet

New narrator to the series. Problem within the first 15 minutes. Most of the time, the narrator is too quiet. Then, all of a sudden it'd get so loud that I have to turn my volume down, and then 2 sentences later I can't hear him anymore! Nothing wrong with the tone or any of the reading, it's just really hard to listen to when you are kept on your toes and have to frequently adjust the volume!

Same Paddington, different narrator.

Everyone sounded different which took my son a bit to get past, but it was the same mischevious bear that tumbles into trouble without meaning to. Still well worth the listen!
