Terrible narration

As others have said the quality of the narration is the worst I’ve heard and I’ve listened to a lot of audio books.

By far, my most disappointing audiobook purchase

So much potential utterly destroyed by awful narrating and inexcusably sloppy editing. Also none of the 10+ stories have their own segments, so enjoy scanning 260+ chapters.

Terrible

Was these stories narrated by 3rd graders? All these great stories, destroyed! Completely butchered…. It’s nonsense. The narrator’s are sloppy. Smh….

Great Stories, Poor Quality

TLDR: Do yourself a favor, skip this and get Stephen Fry narrating Sherlock Holmes instead.

I'll not review the books themselves, as classics, that's been done many, many times by much better reviewers than I. Instead, I'll review the narration, as that is one of the most important parts of an audiobook.

Book 1, Call of the Wild: Good narration, keeping to sentence structure and pauses, even good at the accented speech like "Dat Buck, he two devils."

Book 2, White Fang: Poor narration, mispronounced words and oftimes odd pauses in the middle of sentences, like he lost his place, or went back and restarted recording at a word instead of a sentence.

Book 3, To Build a Fire: I didn't think it could get worse than the last guy. I was so wrong, so very wrong. There is a weird not-quite-echo that shows he isn't using a good mic or it wasn't properly post-processed. The sentences have no structure left, as he speaks with no rhythm. At least once he repeats a few sentences, or repeats a word. Plus the same complaints as the previous guy, not able to pronounce rarer words. Thankfully it's a short story, so you don't have to put up with him for long.

OR SO I THOUGHT! But the story just stops mid-sentence while the man is trying to pick up his matches. That's it, it says thanks for listening. I redownloaded it. just in case. Making sure all your files are complete is the BARE MINIMUM of quality control. I gave up at this, Shelved DNF.
