Quoth the Waven, "Nevewmowe!"

LibriVox produces some superb free audio literature. Recently I discovered Edgar Allen Poe's The Raven, in the LibriVox catalogue, and thought I'd like to hear it again.

Uh... no. This is the review I left them on iTunes:
The primary requirement for audio is a good reading voice. I'm sorry to say, having some who says "waven" and "buwwow" and "nevewmowe" is so offputting as to make it farcical. This is a classic of foreboding and looming, ever-increasing menace & fear - not a good choice for a reader with an Elmer Fudd voice.
