Third Book in Series

Would you try another book written by Lucy Maud Montgomery or narrated by Alan Munro?

I would never choose any book read by Alan Munro, he is AWFUL and this book would have to be heavily discounted or free to put up with his awful monologue and precarious inflection, dreadful pausing where no pause should be and boring intonation!! Alan Munro has ruined this nice little book!!

What didn’t you like about Alan Munro’s performance?

Dreadful

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.

Is this narration done by a computer? It is terrible

The audiobook is unbearable to listen to. The first two books of the series have different narrators and are enjoyable. This one makes me want to smack the guy. The pauses are in the wrong places and the voice emphasizes the wrong words. It is bad.

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.

Don't bother with this version

This is the WORST READ Audible book ever. I'm going to ask for my money back (of course it was only 95 cents, but still).

lousy narrator

I loved the story so much and I loved getting to listen to it for a dollar. And yet, ugh, this is the most frustrating narrator I've listened to. The slowness of his reading could not be fixed at any speed because it fluctuated so much.

You get what you pay for

The story is wonderful, but the performance... it’s like having someone imitating William Shatner badly reading this.

I have a headache trying to keep up

Why is a man narrating this one?

What made the experience of listening to Anne of the Island the most enjoyable?

I love this book. I love this story. I have read it over and over since childhood but I cannot listen to a man read the whimsically sweet words of Anne and Diana. No. I will look for another narration.

Good Reader

This is such a good story. I enjoyed the readers variety of voices. It made the narration easy to follow
