Thanks! Some of the free audiobooks also had the kindle versions free as well.

The CONAN narrator is SO AWFUL IT HURTS......

He sounds like a complete dork just reading like hes bored.

I really expected them to use someone like the Old Chinese Man gritty, manly, wizard narrator from the Original Conan Movie -- whose voice really pulled you into the film, with a kind of passion/perspective.

This seems like garbage even for 66 cents, due to the narrator.

The JANE AUSTIN one seems better...

At least the narrator tries with an acceptable accent to create mood.

Yup I played the sample and felt the same way. Not worth it.

Agreed. I'm a huge Conan fan but after listening to the sample I know this isn't worth a buck to me. I must be spoiled by Michael Kramer and Kate Reading at this point.

A lot of these cheap audiobooks are read by volunteers and weren't intended for commercial use. These books are public domain, so anyone can set up a storefront and sell them because most people wouldn't think to check if the files are being used as they were intended. There probably isn't a big market for audiobooks based on works from 70 years ago.

That would be Mako [wikipedia.org] who played the Wizard of the Mound and Akiro in the sequel Conan the Destroyer. He does have quite the epic voice and is best known for voicing Aku in the original Samurai Jack.

If your a Conan fan I would recommend the books. I am not a big fantasy reader, but Robert E. Howard really paints a picture and help you visualize whats going on. It's like your own personalized movie in your imagination.
