60 ‘Fiverr.com’ Reviews
I complained about host FIVERR and was basically told 'tough sh..' by the company and by the narrator Michael Goodrick. They stated that after 3 days...tough. Below are some of the audio book complaints:
Jarvis audiobook reviews--- Michael Goodrick – Narrator
Book: “All Present and Accounted For”
From Mary C:
Hey... You should talk to your publisher about the person who they chose to read your book. There's already a negative review about the guy on Audible, but now that I've started it - I can see why the other person complained. The guy isn't the best "reader", let alone he misses critical things, like instead of saying "Lieutenant" when it says LT - he just says LT... you can figure it out, but damn. I listen to quite a few Audible audio books and I have to say this is the worst reading of a book I've experienced yet. The intonation is off. Sounds like they hired a high school or college student to read it...and you can tell that he's just READING it. I guess it's better than having a computer read a book...LOL
Great story but needed a qualified narrator
I really enjoyed listening to this story because I myself spent 3 years serving on the USCGC Morgenthau (sister ship to Jarvis) as a Machinery Technician in the Engine Room. I could actually visualize the turmoil the crew would have endured during this causality. I would highly recommend this book to any 378 Sailor.
My only complaint would be that the narrator obviously had no background experience in the Coast Guard or Navy and so mispronounced many of the terms using phonetic pronunciation instead of common terminology found in the Coast Guard and Navy. Examples included: Corpsman - corpse man, Boatswain mate - boat swan mate, Lieutenant Commander - L C D R he would spell out the letters and Lieutenant JG - L T J G.
Please find someone else to read the story
It was painful to listen to this story. The narrator mispronounced many of the words, using phonetic pronunciation instead of common terminology found in the Coast Guard and Navy.
examples included: corpsman - corpse man, boatswain mate - boat swan mate.
Lieutenant Commander - L C D R he would spell out the letters
Lieutenant JG - L T J G
And then the staccato delivery, no smooth flow.
Overall a good story that is little known today
Great Book, Poor Narration
Loved the book and being a CG cutter vet, could envision the drama that unfolded. However, the narrator was horrendous in his mispronunciation of basic nautical terms and military jargon. It was painful to hear him pronounce ensign over and over again along with so many other terms. I felt the narration really distracted from the excellent content. Seriously, I can't believe a narrator with little or no experience in military terms would be selected to narrate this book.

I swear I have never heard a more painful book narration as I have with your book. I commute about 2 hours each day and have listened to 60 audio books and this narrator by far is the worst. I can't believe anyone could mispronounce so many terms and if I hear him pronounce ensign, helo or mariner one more time I'm going to scream!
On a brighter note, I am loving your book and almost finished. I may have to buy a hard copy for a more enjoyable experience.
Some examples below:
ensign = en-sign
commandant = command-ent
helo = hello
mariner = mareener
Identified rank by letter only: LCDR, LT, LTJG, etc.
It's a convenient service but when I was looking at the sight for the first time I thought I was going to just pay $7 for a gig I purchased ($5 plus tax). When I tried to pay to the amount, they asked for a required tip with a minimum of $5 (I only wanted to put an extra $3 to make it an even $10 which is already double what is asked for on the site). But in the final click at PayPal, I ended up paying $14! The tip of $5 has an additional fee so it ends up as a $7 tip expense.
I paid $225.75 for some t shirts designs. I did not get a single one. Fiverr allowed me to cancel the project. They did not refund the money. I tried to contact them, they ignored me. I disputed via paypal. Now Fiverr states they disabled my account, because I am going against the TOS. They demanded I stop my dispute with paypal, and maybe they will work with me. No way! That would mean they get to keep my money without doing the work.
Scammers. Stay away.
Fiverr said that it would give notification when one illustration was finished in a list of four. I didn't hear from my artist till the day it was due and he said he needed more time. I gave it to him. He only had one illustration out of four done to my specs. Fiverr didn't notify me of the third one and then three days later, they completed the file because I didn't respond. When I asked them to reopen it, they wouldn't. I can't even find the artist on there anymore. So yes, even though I have been able to use their site before, I would say that it is most likely a scam site.
It's been ruined if it ever was legit r isn't anymore it's done
I purchased online services from Fiverr for tshirt design. The seller waited until the day the project was due to send me thrown together image after thrown together image - no real thought given just to meet the deadline and get paid.
After going back and forth with the Fiverr Seller and Fiverr, to get a refund after the seller did not deliver as promised by the deadline. The seller then held my images hostage because I did not give him a perfect 5 stars in all categories (have screenshot), Fiverr cancelled my account in the middle of other gigs (email messages) I have going on. They did not refund me for 2 of the projects that were ongoing. I did not violate the terms and conditions I STATED the options I had for recovery. Fiverr didn't like the fact that I kept pressing the issue to get my money back so now they are retaliating against me.
I have a screenshot where I was told, by the Fiverr customer service, that filing a dispute was against the terms and then Fiverr deactivated my account in middle of a website being built and an image design. Fiverr has bullied me after I was bullied and blackmailed by their seller. In the many screenshots, I have one where the seller told me I was wrong in what I wanted and told me what I should have asked for. He then sent me what he wanted me to have and said, "here take it". The image he sent was not a complete image with just the word “mother”. Because both the Fiverr and Fiverr seller have both tried to strong arm me for standing up for my rights I am being punished by having my projects shut down in the middle of them. Then Fiverr has not refunded all my money that is owed to me. I had to contact my bank to have them step in.
As Fiverr is again unwilling to see the error in how this issue was handled and now my project is dead in the water. I am going miss my project deadline, have to fingd another graphic designer and I am looking days worth of web design work that was cut short due to Fiverr overacting.
This all started because the seller wanted a higher rating then what he earned with the quality of his work and service he delivered to me.
I have narratives, emails, images, and screenshots as proof of this lack of professionalism.
Just got scammed by Mcflyer_Designs ! This is a recommended seller by the website who never answered any messages and ever delivered anything...
Amateur hour and do not use their service: Mcflyer_Designs and Fiverr = Total ripoff !

1- I make a full dynamic cms without providing any content and I put Content from the internet as per request (first design).
2- He didn't like the design.
3- I make another one as per request (Second Design).
4- He likes it and request to change photo, and I did.
5- He likes it but need the logo to be suitable on the scrolling photos, then I make a glow on Logo and add more photos.
6- He requests another page and I make it (Writing Services), and we got content from the internet because he don't have a content.
Conclusion: I did 2 designs and all the requested points and more without extra gigs, and he didn't provide content or even any other requests, even he will post-pond your business, I make a good work and deserve my offer, and waiting if there's any obvious requests.
Fiverr has been canceled the orders without returning to me, and after he accept the orders!!!
is that scam?
I request a full refund to my money
is this a scam??
