Terrible Audio Quality

I love Thomas Wolfe and this a a good story but this version is abridged and the audio quality is terrible. It has that crackling noise in the background and it's painful to listen to.

Don't waste your time or money

This recording skips and repeats. I'm surprised something of this bad quality is even on Audible. It isn't the book either.

Terrible narration and a waste

After listing to “Look Homeward Angel,” fantastic and which I loved, I thought I would try “You can’t go Home Again.” I never got past three minutes as the story had different readers for each character, background sound effects, and sounds like a poor 1920s production. There must be better versions available, and I know from previously reading half this novel that the story and writing are wonderful; but this presentation is low quality

Pretty darn good

Loved the performances, and I adored the themes, but the ending was a bit lacking

worthless at any ptice

why are people doing bad copies of old scratchy records and selling them on audible?
i thought there was some rudimentary quality control and i was wrong.
this static filled rendering of an old album comes complete with a scratch and repeated dialog about half way through.
most excellently dissappointed
