INCOMPLETE!

First, props to Charles Hubbell in creating the many voices of the many character in the OZ Books.

The reason for the overall low ratings? This audio book is INCOMPLETE!

One such error is Chapter 8 of Tik-Tok of OZ. Halfway into the chapter and mid sentence, it skips to Chapter 9.

With regards to Audible. This "Chapter 8" happens in Chapter 179 (34:10:31) of the Audio book. "Chapter 9" starts at Chapter 180 (34:15:48) of the audio book. This issue is several pages of the book are missing between (34:10:31) and (34:15:48). I have a physical book and a lot is missing. Chapter 8 prematurely cuts to chapter 9.

This is an UNABRIDGED version so nothing should be intentionally shortened. Either the publisher or Audible made an error. The publisher might have made a complete recording of Chapter 8 and accidentally chopped a chunk off during the edit or maybe part of Chapter 8 got lost in the transfer of the audio book to audible regardless this chop definitely wasn't intentional and needs to be fixed. it cuts to Chapter 9 MID SENTENCE!

I tried reaching out to Audible's Customer service about and they were WORTHLESS! They just gave dumb answers like "the audiobooks don't always sync up to the physical book".

An excellent long narration

I have three Complete Oz narrations now. All have been okay, and very well priced, but I think this one is the best.

First, Wizard of Oz. Perfectly okay reading.

But in the second book, with the introduction of Professor H.M. Wogglebug, T.E., is where the narrator really takes off. There, the narrator is having a five-way conversation between H.M.W,T.E, the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, the Sawhorse, and Tip -- and it's flat-out spectacular. But it's a full 2-day narration and I had a few Nick Podehl book I wanted to listen to, so I went to that one. Nick did a fine job in the other book, but many times I wanted to go back to this one.

Highly recommended.

Fourteen book series for.. ...sixty-six cents.

Had read some of these novels in school, but never the complete series. Am always interested in Great Titles at Great Deals, and although my Recommended Purchases Section now shows only seven-out-of-one-hundred, (they say they're "working on it") one of the seven was "Oz. The Complete Collection" for the amazing price of sixty-six cents.

Have seen some of these pop-up and vanish in the past, so figured would give this a chance in case it drops off the radar soon. From what I have sampled, narration and quality are excellent, and although the "Audible Bumper" appears to be German, the rest is English.

Yes, it is Fourteen Books In One with a total of 341 individual chapters, but for a change the product information page actually lists which titles go with which chapters. Downloading to a local player is a mouthful at 3 1/2 gigs. If space is a premium, it might be better to stream or use the Cloud Player.

Standalone Versions: It also appears (in January 2020) that twelve at the fourteen books (same Author, same Publisher) are available via Audible as standalone titles. The two that are currently not available in January 2020 are Book 4: "Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz" and Book 14: "Glinda of Oz". Perhaps the last two will be added later, but if not there are other versions to choose from to complete the series.

meh performance and missing pieces!

i love this story, and i still recommend listening to it, especially for 66 cents! But I had to rate it low as the reader of it doesn't show enough emotions and I'm afraid I didn't like many of his voices! His voices throughout on nearly every single human character are flat, dead, emotionless! His voices for all the other characters are lively and engaging as is his narrative, so I do not understand why he chose to make dorothy, button bright, and several other main "human" characters have such flat voices. Also his voice for the rainbows daughter is unbearable which is sad as she's one of my favorite characters. Then there are the missing sections, at least 3, thankfully you can google the book and read it online to read the noticable missing pages, but how many are not so noticeable??

Didn't finish it

The first story was worth the $.47 ... but I had to drag myself through the first half.
It is enormous. Thought I might recognise a character somewhere, but no.

The Wonderful Collection

I typically refrain from writing reviews, but I found the other reviews did not do this title service. Even at the price of a full credit, this would be a wonderful addition to your library.
Story wise: Baum created imaginative realms and characters. While the writing style takes on a familiar feel, each story has unique elements and challenges. This is a series of books intended for kids and therefore plots are solved in a manner that is always convenient. It should be noted that Baum was motivated to write the stories to provide adventure books with a female protagonist, but the books are suitable for both boys and girls.
Performance: Hubbell does an excellent job reading the stories. He maintains an interesting tone throughout and manages to utilize unique voices for each character - no small feat for a series of fourteen books in which each book introduces four to ten new characters. If you want to know what to expect, imagine having the books read aloud by a very engaged librarian at story time.
Production: There are a couple of instances where there appears to be a problem in the recording. I noticed two jumps. But no jump omitted critical information that undermine the story. While some reviewers have focused on this issues (which I hope get resolved), I would like to point out that the recording is clear and at a good pace. I've heard much worse.
Summary: It's a collection of imaginative tales that are suitable for children as well as adults that want a glimpse behind the curtain.

Terrible and charmless.

Couldn't get through the first book.
No connection at all. Just reading.
Any Grandma could do a better job.
Very disappointed. Trying to uninstall but having issues....

Wish I read these years ago.

My only experience to the Wizard of Oz was watching the movie on TV, as it would only air about once a year back during my childhood, and obviously, seeing it more often once home movies on tape and disc became available.

I never read any of the books, and wish I had, because I find listening to them now, as an adult, to be very child-like. The narrator is great, and his characterizations of many people and creatures is highly commendable, but I feel like I'm in kindergarten and it's story time and I'm being read to as a child.

This isn't necessarily a bad thing, just not what I was expected, I imagined the source material would have a little more edge or grit to it, as the TV show as actually much scarier than the original book was, and this usually isn't the case.

So I think my only gripe at the moment, is, this is so family friendly that I feel like I'm going into a sugar shock. I'm half way through book 2. I'm probably going to take a break and listen to something a little edgier and come back to this. If all of the books in the series are as "tame" then this is a great collection for young listeners, for sure, but, as an adult jaded by violence, action and special effects in most modern media, this is a little "too tame", but I won't give up on it.

And you certainly can't complain about the hours of entertainment you receive for the price. The voice acting is top notch.

weak narration

Couldn't get into it. The narrator sounded like he was reading a child's book, his inflections get annoying. the book also feels strangely quick, nothing at all like the movie, not that that's bad, I was kind of dreading a long intro.
