Newly retired, I am a reading fiend! I like many types of books, both fiction and non-fiction, with the exception of romance and fantasy
A heartwarming, engaging story that I enjoyed ever so much. The narration was expertly performed for the characters and their personalities, especially considering this story was originally published in 1908.
I've seen the movies with friends, but decided I'd take a break from more serious book topics to go through this one myself. I like the narrator and the subject matter is light, which makes for a pleasant break. The chapters are short, which also makes it nice for dishes or cleaning duties.
I have been an 'Anne' fan since childhood & shared the books with my own daughters throughout their childhood. It was only natural that I would pass it on to the next generation of my grand daughters. Being the ipod generation - of course it was from Audible.....we love this story - but NOT this version. Apart from the odd narration mistakes - I just can't listen to this voice again.
I bought it as an audio book, some time ago, however I just can't stand it being on, even in the background. I have deleted it from my library & itunes.... it's such a whinney, monotoned natarration, that I have rebought the book, looking for something nicer to listen to.
