Tom Sawyer very good; poor pronunciation in Prince & Pauper

Generally very good narration, however it seems that neither Lee Howard nor the producers can have conducted the necessary research on British proper noun and classical speech pronunciation. Prithee, Wapping, Hertford & Southwark examples of words mispronounced - nothing an audience accustomed to American English would necessarily pick up on, but one that us Brits certainly can not help but shudder at. I suggest this title be revisited, or that additional research be done prior to the recording of subsequent titles. Other than that - very good quality!

Reason for two stars

The books are well written and well read. But the format in which you can download them is all over the place you cannot download each book either on a PC or iPhone. You have to download all books and manually scroll through the chapters ruined the experience for me

Content; GREAT! Performance.. .not so much😁

Not terrible...but, close.😁 The narrator doesn't know the language. Hopefully, there's something on Audible, covering the "range" of work, contained herein, performed adequately. Disappointing.

Complete Works of Mark Twain

I tried several times to listen and could not understand the story. The reader was also quite mono-tone which did not help the story at all. I have no desire to try listening again. It was a waste of my first credit.

Don't buy this version.

Lee Howard it terrible. He has no acting ability. Every character sounds exactly like every other character.

Waste.

The narration is stiff and stilted, unbelievably dry and without inflection, pause, characterization, or emotion. It does a real disservice to the source material.

Unexpectedly Entertaining

I just have to say the burgler alarm story in chapter 42 is alone worth the money I have listen to that story 42 times and find it simply some of the best use of the English language and simply the best poetically writing i habe ever had the pleasure of reading and hearing. Narrator choice of words was superfluous the whole Book was Heterogeneous! I loved it

Great stories but...

I wish the narrator would do the voices. Its hard to know who's talking when there is no difference in tone or voice or character

Big commitment to listen to it all but worth it.

so delightful to hear all the stories I never finished in school. The narrator is excellent and made it worth the commitment to finish the whole 58 hours.

the previously played chapters disappeared

I listened to the first story, and began the second. I fell asleep and when I woke up and stopped the audio, ALL of the previous chapters were gone.
