Great, easy to navigate

When I considered buying this audiobook, I was concerned because a reviewer said it was impossible to navigate. However, in my Android audible app all I have to do is tap the title of this book, then "chapters" on the bottom and I can easily navigate thru different chapters as well as different titles.
That being said, this is a great collection, with audio in a voice that I find relaxing but not monotonous.

A journey to the center of the earth
20,000 leagues under the sea
Around the world in 80 days

Hastily thrown together so as to be unusable

Editors made no effort to make this a navigable experience. I plan on returning it.

Worst recording I’ve ever heard on Audible

This is a hideous, amateurish, lazy recording of arguably the best classic sci-fi stories written. It cuts out parts of the stories and sloppily edits quick misplaced double cuts that mirrors and intense stutter. This is a true offense to the creators of these amazing stories, and to the fans and lovers of their writing. Worst credit purchase ever. To whom ever edited this book, you are not good at what you do, try harder, do better.

Fantastic collection...abominable editing

I very much wish this would be re-released with updated editing. The stories are great but the skips and audio glitches are infuriating!!

pathetic editing

Words, and phrases are repeated and just as often they're missing. Makes the listening experience quite unpleasant.

editing made me return this

i have no idea if the stories are any good. i couldnt stand the constant repeating of words due to bad editing. Every 4-5 minutes the reader will repeat 1-5 words 1-5 words. Its really hard to listen to.

Should be at least 100 stars

Like most people I value money, and quality and this collection is one of the best purchases you can make. Every book I have read so far has been fantastic. Yes, there is alittle skipping, but it's like a half a second every hour out of 120 hours. Absolutely great purchase.

A Great Way to Discover These Classics

Hello,

I have come to appreciate works, I struggled to read. I am at the Jules Verne section. There are some repeats in the narrator's voice or other little flaws. But I feel the set is worth it because I have enjoyed these stories, particularly of Jules Verne. I have not gone through the whole series, Each narrator sounds different. It would be a personal preference as to the read quality of these book. Nothing is perfect. I have enjoyed being transported else where. I listen to these classics and read the optimism and hope for the future. Even when the stories are darker, they are still a great adventure to lose one's self in. The stories are interesting, they deal with the unknown, things that frighten and have the power to inspire. I wish people had more patience with this set. It is nice to be read to. And often easier to absorb and appreciate the story when reading is hard to focus on.
