Scarlet pimpernel pride and prejudice 4/5
Karen Savage was the narrator on these and several other titles. She is fantastic. This app has been so enjoyable. I am somewhat selective with the narrators . But for a free app it has been wonderful. Thanks for offering so many great titles. Although... I’m having issues with this app running background and draining my iPhone 7 Plus battery. I’ve had this app for 5 years and LOVE IT. But turning off the background refresh didn’t work. 😢 please fix it.
A driving/flying companion bar-none 5/5
I've had to drive/fly many miles, and the way I have the audiobooks, on my favorite History, non-fiction books. Now on my car they play by Bluetooth thru the car radio.
Great fun! 4/5
I really enjoy this app and use it frequently. My literary interests have almost always dwelt in long ago and lesser known titles, and this app gives me access to tomes nearly impossible to find anywhere else. I give it only four stars because the search function can be rather problematic. For example; I’ll search for titles written by a certain author and only be given a few choices, but if I look up that author under the actual Authors section, there are dozens more. Or I’ll search for a title and the results give about twenty other titles along with it that seem to have no connection to that title at all. Sometimes this is because my title was mentioned in the description of the other books, but other times not. There have been other difficulties with the search function, but for the sake of conciseness, I won’t mention them here. I have also noticed that many of the titles available on the Librivox website are not available here; I’m not sure if the reason for this, but it would be great to have access to them as well. Also, it can be very time consuming to find a title that captures my interest and holds onto it as well, so I wanted to suggest the addition of a “recommended for you” section that brings up available titles based on your previous listening selections. I believe this would seriously streamline the process and increase the enjoyment of your app. Thanks!
It has all the really interesting public domain stories and sounds very professional! They did a very great job in my opinion!!!☺️
Would be a great app if it worked. 1/5
I spent hours downloading books and as soon as I closed the app all the downloads disappeared. I am a long haul. Truck driver and thought this would be perfect for me to listen to literary classics and the Holy Bible.
It’s okay 3/5
By Silvermoon of river clan
I like it but it dosent have warriors by Eren hunter or the heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan so I like it I’m gonna keep listining to it because it has books by jack London but still I think it’s okay
Great app 5/5
This app is amazing! Especially for school when you need to write a book report! I would’ve rated 50 Stars if I could!
The lady from Waco, Tx (sorry don’t remember her name)was excellent!
Not Bad. 4/5
Truly a good app for the budget worthy, add the Odyssey and it would get 5 stars.
The Cave on Thundercloud 5/5
What an interesting story! Very well written, I was intrigued from the beginning. A tale of right and wrong, and a situation that anyone might fall into, in any type of setting. The storyteller has a pleasing voice, a little choppy, but all in all, well done. I may listen to it again sometime!
One of my favorite Apps 5/5
I can listen to so many books without worrying about how much time I need.
Love this reader! 5/5
I’ve been a huge fan of Anne of green gables since I was a little girl. I feel like the reader really captures the glory of this book. I just wish she read book 2 as well.
7th Man 5/5
Wonderful escape from this STUFF, very well done, far fetched but good...And FREE...Give it a listen.
We like to listen to good books together! This is great for us at home or in the car!
I love Audiobooks! 5/5
By Not Van Gogh....
I absolutely love Audiobooks! I remember a time when I was read to as a child, and this evokes those lovely memories!! This is my favorite way to pamper myself with my favorite classics being read to me— whether in the car, at home, or morning walks. Love it!!
Can't believe it took me so long to download 5/5
I am amazed that I didn't download this as years ago. A great app and easy to listen to. I as absolutely love it
By BookLover 100
To say I listen to this app all the time would be really trite. I get a lot of enjoyment out of the app and it has expanded my listening spectrum to books I would never have chosen from other apps. It relies heavily on Librivox recordings to which one must accommodate.
Anne of Green Gables 5/5
Loved The storyline, writing style, and overall enjoyment of the book. Thank you audiobooks, for letting me read it.
It’s okay 3/5
The books they have are great I just wish there was more of a selection
Excellent reading!! 5/5
The reader did a wonderful job at capturing the characters!!
Great App! 4/5
I love that I can listen to books that I may not have picked up in a store with this App. Going through some of the classics right now. Only negative is that some books have multiple narrators. The last one has the sane guy for 15 out of 16 chapters and then for the last chapter a woman. Kind of changed the ending for me... there are a lot of talented readers and some not so much bu I am grateful the volunteered.
I love this app! 5/5
By run happy
I recommend this app to my friends. With it's handy snooze setting, I can fall asleep listening to what ever book I fancy. I can also listen to my favorite authors while doing household chores or crafting . My son uses this app to listen to classical literature , while he follows along on the Kindle for books like Ivanhoe which may be a little difficult for him. This is a very useful app.
By turn to Jesus and be saved
I think this app is very good plus it is free. From the App Store I can go around anywhere I want to just listen to 90 bucks I love this app I only have one complaint that is some of the chapters don't play but besides that I think it's all good and some of the voices you can't understand but that's not their fault.👍💜💙🐾💝💝💝💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩
Great Expectations 5/5
What an enjoyable listen. The only thing that would have made it better is if it had been read by an Englishman. Dickens was a master.
Very Good App 5/5
Does what it's supposed to & then some. I use it all the time!
By hey hey✨✨1
It's good but it's also better I recommend you if you want to get this do you and adult
A must have app. 5/5
This app opens a door to an amazing library of literary works that are free to download. This app has helped me from stressing over the commute every day and has opened my mind to many wonderful works of literature. You will not be disappointed!
By coloring relax
I love this app it is educational GO READING!!!!!!!!!:)
Difficult to operate 1/5
No books show up and you don't know where they are being downloaded.
It's a good app but it doesn't have any really good books 2/5
By Bailee boo 05
This app is amazing and not confusing at all!! Unless you're a Harry Potter fan! then you'll be confused on why they don't have Harry Potter! I love the app but it doesn't have Harry Potter and that's just messed up! so to the app creators you really need to add Harry Potter! so i recommend this app to everyone..UNLESS YOURE A HARRY POTTER LOVER!! Then don't download this!!
Hours of FREE GEMS! 5/5
I've learned so much listening to some of these audiobooks while commuting and working out!
Such a great ap for listening to books. :-)
Fading sight 5/5
By pres smith
Thank you so much. This app has become a close friend, allergic to paper and struggling with fading eyesight. To all the volunteers, you have my deep heartfelt gratitude. To the creators of this app, you are doing a great job and again, my deep gratitude. The app works very well.
Great Audiobooks 4/5
By Awallz 101
I enjoy listening to audiobooks and this is a great app for listening to the classics. As stated in the app most of the books are read by volunteers. However, you can purchase some professional versions of the audiobooks.
Life changing!! 5/5
Awesome, listen with your heart!
I wish that the readers were vetted to weed out the less than adequate ones.
Dracula Guest 4/5
Nice short time stories for free
A must have! 5/5
I love this app so much I absolutely cannot sleep without it! So much better than any audiobook app I've ever used!!
Fabulous. No downside. 5/5
Marvelous list of books. Soothing speakers are reminiscent of bedtime stories. Restful to eyes
Love affairs of a bibliomaniac 5/5
Being an avid reader and book collector myself, I found so much to be in sympathy with the author. Delightful, poignant, and funny. Definitely a favorite
THEY DON'T EVEN HAVE LORD OF THE FLIES!
Anna of Green Gable's 3/5
By Luv to create
I love it.it is my favorite stories
of all time of stories
For free! 5/5
What other rating could I give it?
Enjoy listening when I can't read 4/5
I like being able to set the time I want to listen and then have it turn off. Often go to bed listening to a section of the book but if I fall asleep it won't keep going. Only problem is that I have to try to find what I last heard, as there are no visual clues where I am in the book.
By Ryberg Family
Best deal in town - I enjoy listening to the old popular classics
Maturing nicely. 4/5
I've used this app alongside ibooks and audible apps for many years (>5.) I am a shut-in who has audiobooks as my tenants. All three of the mentioned programs function well. After the face lift Audiobooks got today, it is my #1. Especially as I consider the vast amount of amazing public domain books that are out there. Listenup: authors like Maurice Leblanc are diamonds waiting to be found. Addendum: the jump forward and speed buttons are easily confused as they look almost identical and are set one above the other. Would like to see the back arrow at top left restored for all screens.
Classic trying to improve the menu made it confusing 1/5
The menu before was very easy to maneuver. You could go from playing it back to your library easily now all the buttons are jammed at the bottom in a soon as you click on preview the book immediately starts to play. Looks like they want to upgrade it, and got someone to do it cheaply.
Worthwhile service 4/5
By Mike Farcasin
Many old books for free with decent audio.
I wish it had the casebook of sherlock holmes, since it has the first 4 volumes and books. And that it was satisfied with 1 review, since this is the second time it has asked me.
