I felt that this Classic story read like a young adult book; the characters are not well developed or realistic. The narration was a difficult matter, since the story is narrated by a man and by a woman. Those who produced this recording chose a woman who was very bad at doing a male voice. It was the poorest narrated audio book I have heard. She also was hopeless at doing the regional accent of one of the characters. This is difficult to do but surely could have been done better that it was done on this recording.
