Needs some edits

Generally a very nice reading of one of my favorite books but it was jolting to have several words mispronounced, including the correct pronunciation of Captain Benwick’s last name. Does no one at Libra Vox review these recordings?

Engaging

The narrator breathes life to this classic novel. I highly recommend this audiobook/podcast
