Incomprehensible narration

The narration is incomprehensible - not worth even trying to follow the story as you have to concentrate so hard just to understand it
Story rating is based on the book rather than the audible

Didn’t finish

The narrator mispronounces several words per paragraph -almost per sentence even- to the point where I couldn’t listen and understand what was being said. I can not recommend this version of the audiobook. I gave up after about three chapters.

Difficult

Full marks for effort reading this in English, but there were so many complete mispronunciation it became difficult (at times impossible) to follow or understand.

Disappointed

I’m SURE this a great book, but unfortunately I could barely understand anything the narrator was saying - the speed in which he was talking and his accent just didn’t jive for me. Thankfully I only used a credit to purchase this book because I would’ve been upset if I would’ve used my money.

Great story but terrible Narrator

Love this classic but the narrator struggles with properly articulating words and has no dynamic range with voice - it is a very heavy accent and monotone. I abandoned after the first chapter and will find a better narrated version.

The reader was the worst. Couldn't understand anything he was saying. I would like a refund.

Great Story, Terrible Narrator

The person narrating this book is just bad. English is clearly not his first language and it's painfully obvious.

Great story

Treasure Island is a classic for any age. This version has some recording issues making listening difficult- however, for the price it is adequate.
