    I loved the book I was able to immerse myself on the island but unfortunately was quickly ripped away because of the change of the narrator I would go from a strong young man's voice to an old peaceful soothing voice in all the wrong places

    I had no idea what this book was about before starting it. I thought this book was very underrated as I ended up liking it more than War of the Worlds and had never heard of this one. I thought the book was inventive and unique even though I love animals. The narration was difficult to listen to, and sometimes I had to rewind to try to figure out what the narrator said.

    There are way too many different narrators. The story was good though.

    Great story! So glad I continued listening despite the change in narrators, which I found to be somewhat distracting. Not sure why the narrators changed? Some were good and some were not so great. With listening to if you can get past the narration.

    I couldn’t even stand to listen. The voice didn’t match this book well at all and the static was terrible. Such a shame too :(

    A very good book indeed although it would have been nice to have just one narrator.

    I enjoyed the book but the changing of narrators was maddening to me. It almost didn’t allow me to fully immerse myself in it because of the constant change in narrators.

    I don't mind the change or narrators that much if they can each do well, but a few in this one were monotone and monotonous. Takes away from the quality of the book, especially at the climax.
