This audiobook is a wonderful experience. It is also a steal at $1.99. The narration is a joy to listen to.
Look - I've gone for the $1.99 version not the $60.00 version so who am I to complain (says something about me). Obviously one pf the world's top three literary masterpieces so we'll forget the words in an unabridged version. HOWEVER - this is not a case of what what you gets what you pay's for. The Narrator is excellent - really puting emotion in and the whole 13 (who cares) hours goes in a blink on a long flight or train trip. No complaints whatever with this - she is an excellent narrator (probably Beeb trained) and this is a steal at $2.00. Only problem is (of course) the sound quality could have been better but...you wanna' pay $60? You get used to it after 5 minutes or so. Adds to it, in my opinion.
great bargin at $1.99
I got the $1.99 copy and loved it the narrator is very , very good .
