LOVE the Anne of Green Gables Series!

I truly love the Anne of Green Gables series and this book is no different! The only aspect I did not enjoy was the narration. The narrator continuously mispronounced Avonlea (Avon-lee-UH instead of Avon-lEE), so that was incredibly irritating. And I didn’t like the voices he did for Mrs Lynn and Davie. Aside from that, it was good. Plus it was only $2 so I really can’t complain.

A favourite story, poor performance

This is my favourite of the Anne series of books. Since the price was so low, i thought I'd give version this a try. The performance is very hard to listen to - odd pauses and emphasis, sometimes monotonous... like someone reading a list rather than a book. I got an hour into the reading and gave up - can't stand to listen to it at all.

Is this narration done by a computer? It is terrible

The audiobook is unbearable to listen to. The first two books of the series have different narrators and are enjoyable. This one makes me want to smack the guy. The pauses are in the wrong places and the voice emphasizes the wrong words. It is bad.

The reader was choppy

He didn't read sentences fluidly! He would pause at the wrong times. The reader can sometimes make our break a story.

Great Story, Horrible Reading

What did you love best about Anne of the Island?

I loved the story, I thought it was fun and a good continuation of Anne of Green Gables.This is Anne's college years and is a nice story about Anne growing up.

How could the performance have been better?

Was the narrator a robot? I have been listening to LM Montgomery's Anne series and the constant mispronouncing of Avonlea drove me crazy. This was the cheapest version of the story, and it shows: the narrator does not do justice to the story. I would recommend listening to a different version.

Don't bother with this version

This is the WORST READ Audible book ever. I'm going to ask for my money back (of course it was only 95 cents, but still).

Narration so awkward it spoils the story!

Not sure what language narrator was trying to speak- inflections were weird - does Avonlea really have 4 syllables? I want to know!

Terrible narration

I love the story and for the price was thinking I could deal with the narration. But I can't. Very choppy. I attempted to adjust the speed up and down. Nothing works.

Narrator

Alan Munro has a beautiful voice but he sounds like an auto narrator with poor punctuation. Its a lovely story though, and you get used to him after a while.

Great book! HORRID narration!!

The Anne of Green Gables books are wonderful and Anne of the Island is one of my favorites!! That being said, the narrator almost ruins these books! His strange speech patterns, awkward pauses and creepy voices he uses for different characters made me cringe through the entire book!!

great story, terrible performance

the reader has a pleasant voice but is almost robotic in his reading at times and his pronunciation (Avonlea-uh) and his pauses are ackward, ill timed and annoying- they take away from the story. story was so good that by chapter 12 i could no longer bear the performance and switched to a different version. after reading its reviews and listening to a sample first, i hope to enjoy that version much more

Great story but horrible performance

The story was great. I love this book series. However, it is not fitting that a guy should narrate the series at all. He has too deep of a voice for me to be able to understand what he is saying, and he talks too softly. I can barely hear him. Otherwise, the story is great. I would recommend this book to my aunt Beckey.
