Don't be fooled by the rating. It's terrible.

Love you Audible but why was this book given a good rating?? Terrible narration. Every sentence is read the same and at an irritating near-shout. No acting, no nuance, nothing. In fairness, I can't really rate the story itself because I haven't been able to get through more than 15 minutes at a time without taking a long break. Even trapped in my car during a 2 hour commute. Really really disappointing. Side note - I gave 'Performance' 1-star only because the system wouldn't allow me to leave a rating category with 0 stars and still write a review (glitch or what?). I take it back.

Great for Going to Sleep

Where does The Chessmen of Mars rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The story is slow to me. The first three book by Burroughs were faster I think

What did you like best about this story?

Not very much maybe it's the reader?

Would you be willing to try another one of Peter Delloro’s performances?

NO, He is no reader that you can listen to over a long story

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No not with this reader.
