I grew up on Golden Age Radio, and while I love to read, I typically consume more books via audio thanks to a job that lets me listen while I work. As an aspiring writer, I try to read a great deal of non-fiction in addition to a variety of fictional genres. I especially love history, historical fiction, science fiction, fantasy, and old-style gothic horror.
Having tried a couple of performances from The Colonial Radio Players, I'm hooked. It's like listening to golden age radio, only without the static and without the commercials. I love that sort of thing, and you can tell these actors have a lot of fun with the performances. Of the titles Audible has, most of their works are historical or adventure stories, but this one stood out as... well, it's Snow White. Fairy tales aren't exactly typical of the lineup available here, so why not try it out?
The story as presented here is really close to the original Grimm version, with a few minor variations here and there, but nothing distracting or even overly noticeable. In the age where it seems like everyone's remaking these old stories on TV or film, it's refreshing to have a more faithful version of the classic for modern ears.
