This book is full of fast-paced outdoors adventure. Truly worth your time. I'd like to particularly compliment the single narrator who gives an astonishing performance and brings the characters to life. Well done, sir.

The language in this book is absolutely breathtaking. The eloquence is outstanding, and though it is a challenging read, it is an all time classic for a reason. I highly recommend this novel.

I love to read, but this book is terrible. I wish I could quit reading it but it's required for school.

This book is a must read. The story is moving and full of action. These audio recordings have helped me stay on track while I study this book. The book is great literature and, at times, it is hard to follow. The audio books have been a great help to me in understanding it during confusing sections.
