Publisher's Summary

Based in a mining village in Wales at the turn of the 19th century, How Green Was My Valley catches the impossible dilemmas that were created in society's irreversible shift from pastoral to industrial through Huw, the youngest son of seven.

Loyalty, education, economics and manhood are examined in this pre union tightly knit mining community. Sentimentalised with lots of atmosphere this is a moving account of an important chapter in British history that affects every corner of the world.

Our Hollywood Stage presentation stars Walter Pidgeon.

INAUDIBLE. TERRIBLE QUALITY

What a total waste of money. The sound quality is appalling. Sort out this inaudible recording, Audible! Total rip off.

How hard to hear is this voice?

What disappointed you about How Green Was My Valley?

So disappointed as can't hear the words spoken ...muffled sound makes words indistinguishable for me.

Any additional comments?

don't think I'll try anymore of these as you can't tune it at all.

Unable to hear this reading.

The recording is very, very poor, and the voices are unclear and unintelligible. I wish I had not got it.

Inaudible - truly terrible

Dear Audible - this book isn't audible, to anyone else who is planning to buy it please don't. Check out the sample, unlike me. If I had i wouldn't be writing this review because I wouldn't have bought it. Audible, I'm shocked that you're selling such a very poor recording. If I can find a way of asking for a refund i will. Not fit for purpose in any way, don't waste your time and money.

Impossible to listen to.

I made the mistake of not listening to the sample before purchasing.
One minute was to long to listen!

Hugely disappointing

Sound quality so bad I couldn’t decipher a word and gave up very quickly. How do I get a refund?

This should not be sold

Utterly inaudible and not a reading of this wonderful book, but just of minor excerpts from the Hollywood dramatisation.
The only poor product I’ve had from Audible.

Terrible sound quality

Could not listen to the book as the speakers were barely audible. Do not spend money on this!
