Liked the story, tough Reader

(4 Sterne)

Another easy listen with a mystery! The story was fun with adventures and uncomplicated characters. Unfortunately, one of the readers is *extremely* difficult to understand. I almost gave up several times but I think my ear adapts a bit after a while. I listen while I work, so it was worth it to me to keep listening instead of looking up the book.

Pleasant story, some harsh narration

(3,5 Sterne)

It would be so nice if narrators would simply read the stories. Most have very pleasing voices, until they attempt to do character voices. The majority of the time the result is annoying rather than entertaining. Will try to finish listening, but it is a challenge.

First in great series!

(4 Sterne)

I started this and had to stop because I couldnt understand the words. I found the book and read it at Project Guttenberg and decided to give it another try. once I understood what was going on and the pronunciation of names it helped alot

good young teen story

(3,5 Sterne)

Great book for young teens. Listening was a bit tough; main reader’s accent took getting used to. Sound quality of one chapter with different reader was so bad it was nearly impossible to understand.


(5 Sterne)

not much in way of mystery; enjoyable plot though. read well and consistent enough with a few chapters having different readers than the majority. Will be listening to the sequel next.
