As good as it can get...
Let's face it - The Scarlet Letter is difficult material to get through - there is little dialog and little action. We use these audible recordings to supplement our daughter's high school American Literature class and this recording was a life saver. The narrator seems a bit subdued in the beginning, but over time his voice takes on a cadance that makes listening easier and understanding greater. For active listening, rather than entertainment, we would recommend this recording highly. Our daughter was able to get through a great deal of material with better understanding by using this additional tool. If you're looking to help your student, this will make a difference

A Classic That Deserves Better
Nathaniel Hawthorne's classic tale of sin, guilt, and revenge is a must read for all Americans. However, the narrator reads in a tiresome tone and mispronounces words. I don't recommend this reading.

I like the story but didn't like the narrator too much.
