    Story

    This is an utterly charming audiobook! Arthur Ransome's story about the four Walker siblings ("Able Seaman" Titty being my favorite!) and the two "Amazon Pirate" girls and their idyllic adventures during a perfect August in 1929 sailing around a big lake in the Lake District and camping on Wild Cat Island in it is vividly, humorously, winningly told. Ransome is so good at capturing how kids play, with one half of their minds and hearts in fantasyland (pirates, explorers, the Pacific ocean, sharks, buried treasure, sea battles, walking the plank, deserted islands, etc.) and one half in the real world (making safe fires, cleaning fish and pots and pans, teaching a younger sibling how to swim, managing sailboats efficiently, etc.). He's so good at depicting how their thoughts and imaginations and hearts work! And his girls, especially Titty and Nancy, are at least as imaginative, bold, wild, and strong as the boys.

    I cringed at first when I heard the kids referring to the "natives" (locals) from the standpoint, I thought, of "civilized white explorers," but then it turned out to be their way of signifying killjoy adults who are too serious to enter into the kids' fantasy world and became a complex and interesting use of language.

    The reader, Alison Larkin, is perfectly suited to the book. She speaks clearly, thoroughly understands and feels what she's reading, slightly varies her voice for the different characters (from Ship's Boy Roger to Captain Flint), and speaks with infectious good humor and spirit, so that listening to Ransome's delightful text becomes a big smiling and chuckling pleasure.

    The book is also surprisingly moving (without being at all sentimental), as when, near the end, Mrs. Dixon, the local farm woman who has been supplying the kids with fresh milk every morning, says she'll miss them after they leave the lake the next day, and Titty says, "But we'll be back next year and every year after that for ever and ever," and Mrs. Dixon replies, "Aye

    Story

    This was a wonderful listen! The chapters (linked short stories) recount how Robin Hood comes to be an outlaw in Sherwood Forest, meets the key members of his band, and merrily adventures with them in and around Sherwood Forest in twelfth-century England. Howard Pyle's book has many impressive and pleasing points, among them:

    exciting story-telling, rollicking lust for life, savory conversations, compelling songs, apt aphorisms, beautiful descriptions of nature, irreverent chastising of corrupt authority figures, interesting figures of speech (comparing, for example, the swift passing of Robin's anger to a breath on a window pane or the slow brain of a cobbler to a ball of unbaked bread dough), great humor (ranging from comical slapstick to witty banter and funny irony), and thoughtful movement from the light-hearted merriment of youth to the joy and grief of nostalgic maturity.

    Christopher Cazenove reads with a clear voice and a charming manner and an effective range of accents and moods for the various characters, among them the good-hearted and stout Robin, the brawny and faithful Little John, the refined Will Scarlet, the querulous Sheriff of Nottingham, and the bestial bandit Guy of Gisbourne. Cazenove even remains in each character's voice as he sings the occasional catchy or lovely folk ballads. He infuses his reading with such meaning, humor, and life that listening to this audiobook was a pure pleasure that made me smile and laugh and finally moved me to tears.

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This is an excellent dramatization of A. A. Milne's delightful classic book about Pooh, the bear of little brain, and his quirky friends. The different voice actors are perfect, with standouts being Judi Dench as one of the two narrators, Jane Horrocks as the husky, high-voiced Piglet, and Geoffrey Palmer as the appealingly gloomy Eeyore. Stephen Fry does a sturdy Pooh, though at times I had the uncanny impression of Fry himself standing before me rather than Pooh bear. Two narrators, one male, one female, narrate the chapters, switching back and forth repeatedly and rapidly, and after about the first chapter, I found myself enjoying the switches, as though I were being read to by two ideally witty and warm parents or grand-parents at the same time. The piano music that begins or closes chapters and accompanies Pooh's "hums" is pleasant and appropriate. The sound effects help the listener to imagine the scenes without distracting him/her from the savory text. And the dramatization doesn't abridge much; from what I could tell (by comparing the first chapter in the book with the first one in the audiobook), the dramatizers include pretty much all of Milne's words and chapters except for occasional dialogue tags that are conveyed well enough by the different voice actors.

    It was very entertaining to listen to this book; I often found myself smiling and chuckling at the foolish and charming exploits of Pooh and company and wishing the book would not end.

    By the way, I tried the samples of Peter Dennis reading the unabridged Pooh books and was completely turned off by the bizarre grunting-farting noise that punctuates all of Piglet's utterances. Jane Horrocks is much much MUCH more appealingly Piglet-y.

Anne's greatest hits:
  • Gideon the Cutpurse

    "Like Harry Potter, it's great lit for any age!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This is a great listen for any age. It grabbed my attention from the first and didn't let go. I will eagerly buy and listen to the other three in the trilogy! The narration is really well done, offering a distinct set of voices, excellent modulation and really nicely paced. The story is gripping and scary and sometimes even funny. It offers excellent characters of depth. You really care about what happens to them - even the bad ones!

    I recently finished "Found," the first of the "Missing" series. It's also for young people (which I am not, but find some youth publications to be very good.) I rated it poorly and returned it because it is exactly the opposite of "Gideon the Cutpurse." There is just no comparison.

    One of the best parts of this book was the history of the era in which Peter and Kate find themselves (1763) when life was dirty, dangerous and difficult. I love that it gives young people such a delightfully fun way to learn about this other era and I suspect that, for many, it might spark a lifelong interest in learning about how people live in these "other whens."

  • Found: The Missing, Book 1

    "This book is simply awful."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    "Found" started out well with the mysterious appearance of the plane with no pilot and no crew at the unassigned gate at the airport. And the babies inside. It abruptly switched to 13 years later and two boys receive mysterious, threatening notes. I was hooked.

    Then it just limped along until I wanted to scream. The plot is disorganized and very poorly rendered. The characters are alternately blindingly stupid, horribly stereotyped or just plain boring. There are parts that seem to be just starting to get interesting... and that's where the author will drop into "can I make this interesting bit into something deadly dull?"

    The storyline was so poorly developed and chaotic that, when it abruptly ended with no resolution of anything at all except the clear expectation that you'll buy the next book, I felt simply ripped off. Clearly the author has taken one book and tried to make it into three books in order to sell books.

    And she didn't even do it well!! She left me with no reason at all to care what happens next.

    The next book I started was "Gideon the Cutpurse." Now THAT is literature for young people! I haven't even finished the first one yet and the second and third are already in my shopping cart.

    This book, however, is awful.

  • The Giver

    "Oh my."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I liked this a great deal. It's a book I will definitely listen to again so that I can gather in more stunning detail. I have also purchased the "read it" version for the experience of ... well ... actually reading it.

    The book explores coming-of-age themes in an entirely new way, such that it's actually somewhat hard to convey. Jonas is 11, almost twelve, and lives in a "perfect" utopian community where everyone is always content and safe and healthy and does their part and fulfills their roles in perfect harmony and peace.

    The children all have their perfect places to fill in their perfect families and eventually come to their 12th year when the community comes together to celebrate the assignment of each child's role in the community. They are each assigned their professions on this special day and it's an exciting time for everyone. And in a very rare event, Jonah is given the assignment of "Receiver of Memories." As he begins his training, he meets the now very old man who, as the current memory keeper, now becomes "The Giver" who begins to give Jonah memories that the community doesn't want to know and doesn't want to share, but doesn't want to lose.

    So, as Jonah begins to understand the true cost of a "perfect" life he is faced with some terrible decisions.

    I am haunted by this book.

  • "Fourth book of the Wizard of OZ"

    1 of 1 helpful votes

    For some reason I thought this was the second book, but it obviously wasn't as Ozma was already introduced and other characters that show up in this book.

    The story starts out in San Francisco just in time for an earthquake to take Dorothy and Zeb, ( a cousin) along with Eureka, her cat and Jim an old workhorse into a hole in the ground that leads them into various adventures.

    There are vegetable people, baby dragons, invisible people and finally an escape to OZ and Ozma the queen of the land who helps them get home.

    It is filled with many adventures and is a good story in the series. I read all of these when I was younger and this is fun to read them again. Claire Bronson is good as the narrator, in fact I enjoyed her better than Anne Hathaway's narration of the first book.

    Well worth your time and money if you have children or grandchildren that would enjoy these tales.
