    I am sure it’s a great story but recording and narrator totally inaudible, had to abandon.

    Fantastic even though the narrators struggle sometimes with the old translations it was totally enthralling.

    Great story! Some of the narrators do pretty good… My advice is, Don\'t get discouraged with the chapters that are not so great to listen to, The overall story is worth it. I think it was chapter 14 of volume one that was almost painful to listen to.

    This is a masterpiece, continuously undermined and undone by droning, inarticulate narrators. If you do not know how to pronounce a word, then find out, before dictating into a microphone. Some of the narrators were quite good, but were let down by their less able compatriots. The sound quality of the first six chapters is also awful, rendering most of it completely unintelligible.

    Totally inaudible on any device. The breakthrough parts I could make out before totally giving up sound like it is an amazing book. It’s the free library tho. It’s all on volunteers and no budget. It also skips chapter 2. I couldn’t get passed chapter 3. I tried on 3 different devices with all noise cut out. It’s just the recording.
