    A fan book. I liked the Reader also.

  • Anonymous

    Not a great book made especially tedious by some narrators who shouldn’t narrate.

  • Crystal V

    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.

    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

    If you don't like scary and are kind-hearted toward animals, you probably won't like this book. I did not enjoy it and the ending was lacking. Multiple volunteer readers. Most readers are decent but a couple are hard to listen to.

  • Yekaterina Olshansky

    Great book! Some moments are actually quite horrifying. I would highly recommend it.

  • Deitra Harris

    Very interesting story. Some of the narrations were so boring and monotone that I could not give the story my full attention.

  • jaime olsen

    Thus was a fascinating story. I definitely recommend it. the narrators however are all over the place in terms of good and bad. that are volunteers however and so not too much bad can be said. It was very distracting however.

  • Cameron Mair

    Brilliant story, one or Welles' finest. Inconsistently narrated by the good and the incomprehensible.
