Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Well I found the experience to be a lot less enjoyable. One of the reasons is that Burroughs uses a vocabulary with numerous alien Names and Places. When you are reading at your own pace you have time to sort these out . You can go back and check . Who was this person ? Or What is this place ? In the audio you can only repeat full chapters. Which I did numerous times. I listen to many audio books and only in Science Fiction audios is it a problem.
The other problem with this reading I felt even more distracting. Either the Producer at Tantor Media or the Voice Actor himself has decided that in order to disiguish between the characters most should have Foriegn Accents. This includes even the protagonist Carthoris himself. Most have Middle Eastern or Asian accents. These are horrible and very distracting.
The novel by Burroughs gets 4 or 5 stars. This version only 3 stars.
