"Really awful performance."
Continually announcing the chapter and section in a loud grating voice
I'm sorry I wasted a credit on this.
The stories were mildly interesting but the narrator had and abrasive voice that did not go with the stories and his reading was stilted.
I wouldn't even think of changing Charles Dickins.
not Deaver Brown
i have not
i have not listen to many so i have not idea
disappointment because of the narrator.
"Love Charles Dicken, did not like narrator"
The narrator. I will have to find another version of these stories so I can listen to them again. I just could enjoy the stories because of the narrator.
Anton Lesser or Sean Barrett or David Timson or Simon Vance or Simon Prebble.
Beware british readers if you can't stand the idea of one of our finest novelists being read aloud with a very strong American accent. I just couldn't listen to this version.
"Don't buy! Narration is terrible!"
Charles Dickens yes - Deaver Brown - never
Couldn't understand the narration.
Never finished the book due to the poor narration
"Insult to My Ears"
I can't imagine anybody enjoying this book as read by Deaver Brown.
The narration was so awful, the audio quality so bad, I couldn't get past the first chapter.
I would remove the book from Audible, hire a new, talented narrator, and re-record the book.
Deaver's enunciation and pronunciation are so bad, it's an insult to my ears and to my intelligence. He mispronounces and cuts off the endings of words, stumbles while reading as if he gets tongue-tied and slurs his words. On top of that, the recording quality is awful. There is constant distortion from overmodulation whenever Deaver raises his voice just the slightest. This is amateur hour and Audible shouldn't even offer it for sale, let alone charge for it!
