    "Terrible narrator"

    All off the books about Anne Shirley are wonderful, but this narration is killing all the pleasure. It is absolutely impossible to follow the text as Alan Munro makes pauses in random places and reads everything with no emotions whatsoever.

    "The reader was choppy"

    He didn't read sentences fluidly! He would pause at the wrong times. The reader can sometimes make our break a story.

    "Great Story, Horrible Reading"
    What did you love best about Anne of the Island?

    I loved the story, I thought it was fun and a good continuation of Anne of Green Gables.This is Anne's college years and is a nice story about Anne growing up.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Was the narrator a robot? I have been listening to LM Montgomery's Anne series and the constant mispronouncing of Avonlea drove me crazy. This was the cheapest version of the story, and it shows: the narrator does not do justice to the story. I would recommend listening to a different version.

    "A Classic"

    Love the books. have read them all many times and just recently started listening to them. The narrator for this one is not right. This story can't be told from the perspective of a young woman in a man's voice. Tragic.

    "Wonderful book, but choose a different narrator!!"

    The reading is definitely lacking in kindredness. I am going to buy another version as well. I just can't take this!

    "horrible narrator "

    I loves these books ! they are imaginative and really good but not when the narrator is horrible. bland , halting and very monotone with very little distinction between voice I found my mind wandering all the time and extremely hard to keep my attention. download a different version of this book

    "Alan is disturbing to hear"

    This isn't something a man can narrate, but it's $.95 so I guess it's what I paid for

    "Sorry of course it's great narrator is awful"

    The price was right so I stuck with it but this narrator was awful. Stilted and monotone with terrible voices for different characters. I do not understand why you would ever have a make narrator for a book with predominantly female characters either. I don't want to pay a lot for s book I've read a million times but I wouldn't listen to this again.
