    I so love and have always loved The Moonstone! I am very glad that I previously heard a delightful recording of it because this narrative was very uncomfortable at times.

  • carla D

    Was hard to follow at time due to so many different readers reading as the same person telling the story. some women reading as a man and others having a harsh accent. story was interesting

  • Susan Messmer

    Not only can't I understand her, the accent is very annoying. She sounds like Za Za Gabor but her accent is more pronounced. The other narrators were okay so that's why I gave it 3 stars. If Za Za was the sole narrator I would give her a zero, but since there are no zeros, I'd give her a 1.

  • Gayle Barry

    Parts 24 a34 were narrated by woman with such a poor English accent (English as a second language) that I had to quit the narration. Very dissatisfied and very disappointed
