"Don't be fooled by the rating. It's terrible."
Love you Audible but why was this book given a good rating?? Terrible narration. Every sentence is read the same and at an irritating near-shout. No acting, no nuance, nothing. In fairness, I can't really rate the story itself because I haven't been able to get through more than 15 minutes at a time without taking a long break. Even trapped in my car during a 2 hour commute. Really really disappointing. Side note - I gave 'Performance' 1-star only because the system wouldn't allow me to leave a rating category with 0 stars and still write a review (glitch or what?). I take it back.
"Great for Going to Sleep"
The story is slow to me. The first three book by Burroughs were faster I think
Not very much maybe it's the reader?
NO, He is no reader that you can listen to over a long story
No not with this reader.
"old english but good"
remembering the book i read when i was young
none, it was unique, due to the last part of the book held very memerable caritors.
he did not put me to sleep at all
"Wish I could have MORE."
I have listened to this story twice. Edgar really did an awesome job, and Peter totally captures the personality of the Virginan Man, John Carter. Totally worth the value, just make sure you read them in Order, in my opinion.
