The narrator does a fantastic job reading a fantastic novel. I hadn't read this in over 20 years, and the narrator made it seem like it was the first time again. Excellent job!
I enjoyed the reading. Although there were vital chapters that were skipped. Ignoring the whole work, reflection, and depth of Defoe's excellent novel. I am a little disappointed. I am hesitant in using this reader again due to the possibility of missing other great literature I have not read.
This was incredible! The recording is very clear and easy to hear and I would download another book from this reader simply because he does such a great job. Not to mention the fact that it's free!
