horrible narration

The narration was so monotone and uninteresting it made a wonderful and exciting book seem boring. I downloaded this for my son and he could not get into and i couldn't blame him.

Great book ruined by a horrible reading

The voice and performance of this audio book is so horrible the book is not possible to listen to. My kids refused to listen to it because they couldn't stand the woman's voice. I tried a year later and couldn't make it past the first page.
Great book but you're going to have to read this one.

Choose a different version!

Our family loved this book, but the narrator of this version was TERRIBLE. Do not listen to this version.
