  • Annoying!

    by Crock of Apples

    I would incourage you to buy this but,the guy who does the talking, his voice is really screechy and it is so very annoying. Still a good book.CG

  • Reader does not pronouce complex words correctly...

    by Dakota99

    There are words that have complex pronounciation and the reader obviously doesn't bother to pronounce them correctly... Which can give the sentence a different meaning. Not acceptable for an audiobook where the listener depends on the readers ability to communicate at an expert level. Suggestion: hire professionals. Very excited about the app---ended up disappointed. Cannot trust the reader without following the story myself...which misses the whole point of an audiobook.

  • To short.

    by Socaltech

    To short. Not worth your time or money.

  • B Buttons

    by cheeksnholmes

    Nice app. Very nice. However, the voice was a horrible match for the story. More attention needs to be given to narrator selection. Never read the book, didnt see the movie. Just couldnt finish 'cause it didnt fit. It needs to grab AND hold you. Perhaps for another read. Just not this one.

  • Anemic

    by Laukolady

    A story of very little substance voiced by someone who brought nothing to the story.

  • Benjamin button will put you to sleep

    by Chicken choker

    Very boring to listen to. Story overall is okay but incredibly predictable! Don't waste your money.
