Oh dear

First prize for worse narration.
The narrator sounds like he’s yelling at the mic from a different room.
The story is a classic.
Although the price is very low the audio is that bad - the narrator needs to go.

It’s favourite to either read the book or listen to it using TTS.

It can’t be overstated how dreadful the narrator is.

Outstanding

The story is absolutely outstanding. This unabridged edition is a must-read. The narrator chooses to speak slowly and pauses at odd times, but turn up the playback speed and it’s not even noticeable. For the price, it’s well worth it.

Horrible reader

He sounds drunk and often heads the microphone or stammers. It’s pretty amazing how much I hated listening to him speak. Sad cause it’s a solid book but not the version to listen to.

This book is amazing the narrator is not.

Bambi by Felix Salten is incredible. A must read. Either learn a language where this is narrated well or read it yourself in english. Seriously Disney failed at makng this and so did Deaver Brown at narrating. One day it will be shown well.
