just no.

the narrator totally ruined this one for me. I just could not deal with it the rythem of her reading. I tried speeding it up and slowing it down and I just could not get past it. shame.

Classic works ruined by dreadful narration

Managed to get to Chapter 9 before my ears started to bleed. The narration is like someone catching nails down a blackboard. Think of that snake out of The Jungle Book hissing every 'S' combined with drawling sentences. The total ruination of some of the most classic and wonderful gothic works ever written.
