Terribly narrated.

The narration was shocking. It was echoing, you could hear the pages turning, the narrator paused in the wrong spots and tried to pull off different voices for characters that made it impossible to understand him. He mixed up the voices and was downright terrible.

A great historical book

An great work of American historical literature narrated very poorly. I'd wanted to enjoy this book for a long time. With vision problems, I thought the audio version would be an enjoyable experience but the narration was so cumbersome as to ruin the book. It makes me doubt the entire audio book medium.

Insulting Narration

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

No one. This performance is an embarrassment and is insulting to anyone who is an English speaker older than 6 years of age. This performance does not hold up to librevox standards, but sounds like someone in a basement. This was just plain horrible. The narrators use of different voices for different characters is insulting and pronunciations are beyond ridiculous.

Tinny and Unpleasant

The recording is tinny and unpleasant, a terrible rendition. Extraneous sounds in the background and poor pronunciations throughout. I couldn't even finish chapter 2.

Worst Audio Performance

I decided I needed to read this book after rewatching one of my favorite movies of the same name. I also purchased the audio version to go along with the Kindle version so that I could listen in the car. The Kindle version is very different from the audio version. I suspect the audio version is the abridged version. Despite being advertised as being always in sync, it never occurred. Due to the writing style of Cooper and the early 19th century, reading the book is excruciating. Very hard to follow. I gave up reading about half way through and stayed with the audio. The narrator is amateurish at best. His voices and accents are terrible. You can hear him flip the pages of the script. Audio edits are very obvious and no attempt is made to match the same speaking level. Although I liked the story, it was the worst Kindle and audio investment I have ever made. Buyer/reader/listener beware.

A wonderful, evocative story

One of my favourite books. A few mispronounced words here and there, but hardly surprising. All-in-all, a great audio book.
