    Dumas' classic tale of revenge & retribution has spawned many adaptations, so the unabridged original is great to go back to. This narration is as good as any I have heard of any book. I lost count of the voices he employed; it may be as many as 30, all of which fit the character portrayed like a glove. In other words, this is a professional-grade rendition and so a great treat. I can say this with confidence as I previously read the unabridged version, and viewed the movie adaptations with Richard Chamberlain from 1977 and more recently, Jim Cavizel. Both highly recommended.

    It’s a long listen but a worthwhile and engaging story. There was one narrator and he was very good. I would recommend this audiobook.

    My favorite book of all. I have read it abridged and in 4 different unabridged versions. I love them all.

  • Karel B

    A very good narration of a classic book. The fake french accent needed some getting used to, but once I got over it it became to feel appropriate.

    This is such a great book! Long but never dull or difficult to listen too. The reader does an amazing job and is probably one of the best I have heard so far!
