    Great narrator to accompany a book that far outperforms its movie.

    The book was a great disappointment. Half the scenes were 100% unnecessary, the ending was lame, etc. BUT the voice actor (narrator) was great.

    Good book, it's really old now but it is still good. It is told almost like a bedtime story or tall tale.

    Enjoyed book. Movie and TV series adaptations use Welles’s story very well. I like the ending where he calls out preparedness for the future. We don’t think of that often in real life as I look on this book in the midst of covid19

    I managed 50 minutes of listening to an American reading a Classic British novel with no apparent research into the pronunciation of English place names. Shame on you Librivox for not checking such a basic requirements. I can only assume that some of the 'glowing' reviews were not from readers familiar with our place names.

    The narrator is American having no knowledge of English pronunciation. A lot of the town names were pronounced wrongly. He didn’t read ahead so finished sentences with his tone then read the end of the sentence as if he was starting a new one. Very poor!
