I have not read Oz since I was a child, and I found it to STILL be a delightful fantasy...though I'm nearly 64! Listening to it (for I have cataracts & other health problems with my eyes these days, making it hard to read entire books) has brought back some childhood memories which made me feel just a WEE bit younger for these few hours. :-D.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz audiobook, narrated by actress Anne Hathaway, was an absolutely delightful listening experience! L. Frank Baum’s characters in this story are so magical, vivid, and lively. I thought Anne Hathaway flawlessly brought life with these familiar characters in her narration. The cast in the book is large, and there are some minor characters that weren’t portrayed in the movie. She had a different voice for everyone, and her ability to easily change her voice to the character of the moment showcased her excellent acting talents! Whether you’ve seen the movie or read this book before, I still recommend the audiobook. It’s a very entertaining version of a timeless classic!
This is a great story made even better by the narration. Anne Hathaway did such a good job on the character voices. She was so creative and made the story come alive.
I didn't know that Anne Hathaway had ever done a book narration before. I was intrigued so decided to try this one as it was pretty inexpensive. I was surprised by how good it was. From the beginning I was hooked because of the funny voices she did. She was creative and consistent throughout the story.
I don't typically enjoy books written for children but this was great. I really got into it. I would recommend it for kids because she does such great voices.
