Just bought it, I wouldn't really recommend it. It's 94 chapters with literally no way to discern the start of one book from the end of another--just "chapter 1, chapter 2, chapter 3" all the way to 94.

The clarity of the audio is perfectly fine, and it's consistently the same narrator. However, the voice is a little off-putting for me. I prefer gentle voices that I can fall asleep to, but half the time narrator basically talk-yells everything as if he's trying to project his voice to the back of a classroom. It's high quality audio, just not my cup of tea.

Is the narration legit? I jumped on an Edgar Alan Poe deal and it sounded like a European College kid doing an English project. I can't take it serious.

What you has no like Europe kids?


More seriously, this is almost certainly selling public domain recordings - so the quality will range from crap to absolutely abysmal, without any stops for mediocre or middling.

I don't have any issue with the narration. The preview sounds good to me.
