I just wanted to give a big thank you to the developer of this app. I was home, sick with bronchitis for two weeks so I missed a lot of school. I had lots to catch up on and this saved me a few hours of reading a book. I listened to this audiobook while doing other work to get caught up faster. So, thank you for making my life a lot easier! :) Also, I loved how it was free, and the reader sounded enthusiastic (not too boring, haha), throughout the book. The only problem I had with this app is that it is HUGE (199MB) and takes a long time to download. I was willing to overlook it though since it is free and it really helped me out. Five stars and a big thank you :)
Great Classic, Excellent narrator, flawless design and interface & Free. What else you want?
A classic is a classic is a classic. No wonder this story and characters from it shows up in our times, times after times. I got this because I love audiobooks and it was free. Although I have seen the movies and tv dramas etc based on this book. But reading (and listening to) this book even now is amazing. I am not ashamed I discoverd this book first time at age forty. Simpily great book. The narrator did a amazing jod and my thanks to the devolepers for the layout and fittng of the book and audio in for iphone/touch screen. Over all excellent app, Will be looking for more to come.
Excellent Audio Book Version
This is a fantastic audio book. I tried to read this book as a kid many, many times but the pirate language always threw me off, and I never got very far. Now well into my 30s I have finally "read" the book and am happy that I did. Excellent story, great narrator. I will look for more Cross Forward audio offerings.
