I love this app! 5/5
So many wonderful classic books to listen to; I strongly recommend this app!
Good books, Okay narrating 4/5
I have enjoyed these books so much! I got Audiobooks Plus, which is somewhat better. Some narrators are good, but the quality varies. I had to stop reading one audiobook because I could barely understood what they said. And another Plus book was read by a child. Not an enjoyable read. But you can sometimes get a good reader. Overall, if you want to hear a book, regardless of how you hear it, this is the place to go. The Sherlock Holmes reading is excellent (If you do the ones by David Clarke.) There are some small errors in the organization of the books in the authors, for example.
My rating (out of 5 stars)
Can't listen to my audiobooks 1/5
I have a large library of audiobooks and this app won't allow me to listen to them.
Anne of Green Gables 5/5
It was so pleasant to go about my work while listening to this audio book. The soothing voice rose and declined perfectly to the excitement of the novel. I am grateful.
Used to really enjoy this app, but since at least the last update, it’s been freezing and glitching our both when I am using the app actively and when it’s playing in the background. Was hoping they’d fix it with another update, but no luck so far...
[update 2020.03. - still no improvement. App just crashed 3x in a row. Every time I don’t use the app for a day or so, I have download all of my books again]

A wonderful app. Great selection and perfect voice clarity
Best audio book app 5/5
This is the simplest and easiest to use audio book and it has a lot of free books from all genres to keep you entertained.
Worst app ever 1/5
Has no books about NASA
I’ve been using this app for ages without problems but it has started crashing after 90 seconds of playing. How do I resolve this?
Not a good book app 1/5
By I Want My Book.
I have been searching for this one particular book but it will not show up, the book is called roll of thunder hear my cry and that’s a book I need for school and if this stupid app doesn’t have it, most likely and 100% already known other apps don’t have it either I have been searching for it and no luck yet.
Doesn't even have Harry Potter books. 1/5
By I ❤️ ANIMALS ASPECILE DOGS
So, if your looking for the book called Wings of Fire or Harry Potter books, THIS IS NOT THE PLACE. These two books I'm looking for, and this said it was free, so I thought: "Maybe this has Harry Potter or Wings of Fire books! BUT NO.
By Solitaire jujnky
Love the books!
Spell binding 5/5
By Slim Jane
Surprise at every turn. I didn’t know where it would lead & was forced to keep listening. Really enjoyed the short story. It said a lot about where power will lead a person.
Great app except 3/5
You have changed the view on this app so that the font is much larger. It isn’t something I can change. When you want to do a search for a new book you only use 1/2 to 1/3 of the page so you can only see a few titles at a time. I can no longer scroll through quickly to find a new book.
Also is there a way the app could know which books we have already read without downloading it again to find out?
Anne of green gables 5/5
By The Anne of Green Gables story
What happen In the story was so interesting and dramatic
Keeps deleting my books 3/5
It was great until last update. Now every time I open the app, it has to redownload all my books.
No library, no problem! 5/5
I really prefer books written in the 1800s and have found most of the authors I like to read. The readers have taken time out if their lives to read these books for our enjoyment. I really appreciate them.
Jane Eyre 5/5
Elizabeth is a fine reader and brings the book to life.
The “normal” speed is entirely too fast
around the world in 80 days 5/5
By poodle time
Very well read by mr Smith , fun to listen to .
Best audio library for classical lit 5/5
The biggest problem I have with other audio-book apps is that in many cases they only offer abridged versions, so it’s really just an interpretation of a work. Not here, you get the original version by the author.
The recordings vary in quality, there have been a few that were so bad, I couldn’t even listen to them, but some are as good as the pay sites and read by pro readers.
Also, I highly recommend forking over the $10 for the featured audiobooks, it’s such a great value! I’ve listened to about 60 books from this app.
Star Stories for Little Folks 5/5
Good. The stories are in attentive detail. Easy to understand and see. A good beginning.
Uncle Tom’s Cabin 5/5
Gripping. book. The reader does an AMAZING job.
Heir if I Redclyffe 5/5
By Sully Fabriholic
Starts kinda slow to set up the plot but in the end it’s a good story
A great reader! 5/5
Cate Barratt, kudos and thanks, just incredible, you did le Fanu proud, perfect mixture of author and reader. Wow
The app is freezing 2/5
Used to be good but now out of sudden the app is freezing and is not usable and useful ... please fix it ASAP!!!!
Does not work. Slow. 1/5
By Antony iTunes
Slow. Crashes. I am using ios12. So slow to load books.
could be fantastic 4/5
this is a good app that could be made great. i love the collection of classics and old books plus the options of newer title. there are, however, some ofd glitches. the app starts playing by itself. i closed the app, still did it. deleted the book, still plays it from the lock screen. also, the play/pause via earpod feature has a glitch where it will pause at the first attempt, but not at the second or third. have to revisit the app to “reset” play/pause.
Good Reading, French Voices Need a Little Work 5/5
By Zach & Sonia Summers
Passepartout’s French wanes in and out, but otherwise excellent read.
Love the free books!
It changed my way of thinking for the better. Thank you so much.
By John Austel
I really enjoy listening to books that I have never read as well as books I remember reading as a child. This is a great app for books and while driving to and from work I can get lost in the stories!
God is Love, Christ is God’s In Us! 5/5
By Momma Larlar
Love is why we are here. We are called to show the Love God has shown us through and in Jesus! I never realized the true joy of fellowship that I can have with my Savior, Brother and friend in this life on earth but have been waiting until I see Him in Heaven. This book, written by Andrew Murray, has helped me to understand that Christ has Loved me with an everlasting Love which started long before I was born. Everlasting Love is God and God is everlasting Love! Both are true and Jesus is the fountain through Whom all of God’s Love and Blessings flow!
Read or listen to the words written in this book. Think on them. Dwell in them as you learn what a blessing it is that Christ abides in you and learn of Him for the Glory of God the Father!
May God’s Love be made manifest through you for His Glory through Christ who will give you the strength to Glorify our Father in Heaven. All Glory belongs to God and, through Him, His Son with whom He is well pleased!
With all my heart, May the Lord bless you and keep you all the days of your life and may you live in the House of the Lord forever. In Jesus’ most Holy Name, Amen and Amen!
LOVE IT just one question..... 5/5
By kimk lover#kimk
So I LOVE this app it has SOOOOOO many amazing authors and books!! With that being said their is one thing I wish that I saw more....KID BOOKS!! I wish their were more books for kids such as Nancy Drew, and what about comic books? Can we see some of those?, and what about Magic Treehouse? Speaking of Magic Treehouse can you guys make a feature where you can search Series of books and guys group them together so all the books in the series in one group that would be awesome! If you guys have these features please let me know thanks! 😘
Great Selection!! 5/5
This app is great for listening to the classics!
I only wish there was one more speed setting between Normal and Medium. Please?
Selections are endless 5/5
I have had the app for a couple weeks now and have no problems playing books. The selections are endless. I love old time radio and they are hard to find but audiobooks has a large selection and it grows everyday. Very good app!!!
The best app I have... 5/5
All of the classic’s I never got around to reading. And it has enriched me more than I would have thought. Sure there are great Writers, Today. But can they really hold up against The masterpieces. Of all time ? I will unequivocally Say, NO! Dickens , Twain, Arthur Conan . Just three of Icons who I have been re- acquainted with. And the Orator’s, you will find your favorites. Make our Books even more compelling. Jimmy M
Extremely beneficial to anyone who wants to better their life by learning from others 5/5

Excellent couldn’t be any better
Great free app 5/5
By Kreative Pro
This app is great, kudos to the developer and thank you. For all your work.
Needs serious work 2/5
The current version must not be playing well with the current IOS update. Intermittently when it’s paused or I get a notification the player randomly goes to a prior point.
I’m using an iPhone 7.
User friendly, great selection 5/5
By Smitten with written
The format allows easy playback and review. The timer feature helps me make my own little bedtime story list, and the categories listing Narrators and Genres has helped me find new gems for my reading and listening pleasure. Sometimes its the only reason that I carry my tablet!
Too fast! 3/5
Talks speedy I can’t even catch it! I click to Med but no change!
Buggy after latest update 1/5
I loved this app but after the latest update it stops playing after 30 seconds then it glitches and freezes and the app can’t be used. I constantly had to close and try to relaunch the app but even that is hit and miss.
One of my favorites 4/5
Looking for something different? I like that I can listen at my pace. This App has helped me broaden my reading experience. It’s like having my very own library.
Don’t Get 1/5
By This is a dog not a cat
Terrible, so glitchy, it keeps freezing and then the app shuts out...
Excellent narration by Mr Stinson 5/5
I’ve enjoyed and appreciated the consistent quality of narration provided by Sam Stinson. Thank you,
Scott Nitzel, MD
Limited selection 1/5
They can’t get books that are extremely popular... you have to give them a credit card to find out if they have what you want to read.... only to find out they don’t have it but now they have my credit card number...
There is no place in settings that says cancel my subscription so I sent them an email with the subject Cancel my subscription now I wait to see if I get a bill
It would be better to find what you want to read before you commit to the app
