Mostly ok, Some poor narration.

Dramatized scenes are okay. However, some of the narration is just plain bad. Seriously, the guy stumbles through his sentences like a primary-school child reading to his class, did they not think to record multiple takes?! Anyway, at least they aren't too frequent..

Great!

Well performed. I could understand it easily though I am French. The adaptation doesn't defer much from the original text. The music is intertaining and the noises are realistic. The story in itself is interresting. I recommend it. Especially if you have to read it for school.
