I had no problem with the quality of this books audio recording. I enjoyed it so much I found myself listening to some of the stories more then once for the pure pleasure of it. It is worth every penny. If you are anything like me and live a fast presure filled life during the day, this is a nice book to help you unwind.
Twain's Humor: A Collection
No one can fault Twain's humor. At least no one with a keen sense of humor. That is why I am so disappointed with the sound quality on this audio book. Much of it is of such low audio quality as to be ununderstandable. Don't waste your money on the audio book. Get the paper or hardback copy. Too bad! It would have been nice to have a decent quality recording. If this is a sample of the audio books, I won't be buying them.
