Poor

A shame such a good story was ruined by the mumbling drivel of the narrator.

Alan Munro helps me sleep

I give this narrator 5 stars, simply because he helps me sleep when nothing else will work, and his voice is a good alternative to meditation! Some people would see this as a negative, and I must admit I don't know what the stories are about 90% of the time, but at least my anxiety goes away when I start to listen and I can sleep soundly.

Jungle book

This version of Jungle Book was very old fashioned, using thee and thy and read by a very indistinct American reader. It successfully sent all the grandchildren in the car asleep!👎

The Jungle Book

Just what I remember, well narrated, really evokes the India of the Raj. Well worth buying.

Miss understood book

I got this free from Amazon I have to say I don't get the reviews u can't understand the narrator.. If anything he is a bit robotic but is fine I thought he may have a strong Indian accent but nope American a bit quiet but fine.. Good book and fun to lisdten to. Don't expect songs or any of the "faux Disney" stuff if your looking for that then be disappointed.. Good book and fun.

This book was reduced to free on Amazon with the kindle book.. I stumbled on to it and thought why not.. Amazon or audible didn't not ask me to do this and it being free was how i fiund it on there web site..all thoughts n comments Are my own .. I do not paid for reviews and I'm not in anyway officiated with Amazon and all there subsidiaries ect..

The Jungle Book Audiobook

I did not like the narration. It was too quite and had way too much bass. The narrator has weird breaks or pauses in his sentences. I may have enjoyed reading it better.

Can't decipher

I wish we could get a refund. Although the narrator has a wonderful voice, his voice is too deep to understand all the words from the recording. Our family couldn't hear the story and we didn't even get through the first chapter.

Impossible to understand!

I was really excited to start this book but I stopped 30 minutes in since I could not understand one full sentence! The voice is so bassy! It sounded good on my good quality speakers when I tried the sample but I realized my mistake as soon as I started listening to it with my earbuds. I ditched this audio book and bought Peter Batchelor's version in order to finish the book.

Pretty good

The only thing I didn’t really love is the fact the the narrator has a really deep voice and it sometimes causes my speakers in my car, phone, and head Phones to buzz. Making it so that I could not hear the story.

The Narrarator is too bassy for my small speakers

I listened on small computer speakers and it was to bassy to hear well over welding at work.

Great Book - Terrible Reader

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The reader sounded like he was out of breath. The pauses were in all the wrong places and the inflection was all over the place. Ex. Instead of simply reading "Messua was kind to me", the reader reads, "Messua was kiiiiind (stretching out the word "kind")..then pause....to me"

Audio very hard to understand

The book was good, but the narrator was awful. very hard to understand him. The space between sentences was negligible, so it was really hard to tell where one sentence began and another ended. I had to read along in the book to understand what he was saying. His enunciation isn't clear.
Great story, but find another narrator.

Didn’t like the narrator

No matter how much I turn the bass down in our car, this book makes the speakers shake because his voice is so low!
