Hope Davis really put on a wonderful one woman performance of this classic book. I think a listener of any age will be delighted with this marvelous story and the outstanding narration.
The performance was amazing! All of the characters have distinct voices, and the emotional parts come across as genuine.
A lovely story that I had started to read when I was in elementary school, but stopped due to either being weirded out or too distracted to enjoy it.
I read this book when I was a kid, and now I get to share it with mine! I love how this book is so fantastical, yet no matter how far in the universe the characters go, they come back to The universal theme of love and how love conquers all.
The characters are amazingly well portrayed in this audio version, especially Meg. As to the story, it is just as fresh and relevant today as it was when I first heard it on audio book way back in 1974 or 75.
It was the best best. A magnificent story.
I did not struggle at all. Actually, My mom struggled to understand. I was like a "swish!" and I was finished reading it. This book will always be remembered. It was easy to read it and I got everything what the story was.
Nobody could have wrote better than this wonderful, adventures story.
I really liked the narrater. She had all the voices for every character and read in a steady tempo. It was the best narrater! I wish she read other stories of Madeleine L'engle. I am very sure she wrote other stories great, too.
I thought my child would love it. She did not! She enjoyed the Secret garden much more.
How can this possibly turn out right? I wondered as I listened to this story I had not read as a child when everyone else seemed to be reading to it. Over fifty years ago L'engle wrote this story. Finally I listened to it to try to find out what made it a classic. I am so glad I did. Meg had to be her own hero. Love was the weapon that could defeat "it." Our best weapon is still Love.
