Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
An enjoyable children's story that is a timeless story. I actually enjoyed this story better than anticipated. I liked how the books beginning seemed to be in black and white just like how the moving is. I really liked the TV series the Tin Man that was based on this book. Anne Hathaway is a very good narrator, although some of her interpretations of how certain characters will sound do not fit. Thanks Audible for the freebie.
Anne Hathaway is a gifted reader. She brought the story and characters to life! A wonderful family time awaits you with this audio book.
I thoroughly enjoyed the story I had never read in its entirety and Anne Hathaway did a wonderful job reading it. The various voices she made up were a lot of fun to listen to, especially the scarecrow's!
I remember reading several of the Oz books when I was a kid, and it seemed like I liked them, though to be fair, maybe I liked the ones after the first one. Anyway, listening to this one didn't do it for me. I like Anne Hathaway but wasn't thrilled with her reading of this.
I am ashamed to admit I had never read the original book; I found the differences between this, and the movie I know so well, both startling and refreshing.
Anne Hathaway does a phenomenal job bringing the characters to life (and making sure the next generation doesn't get so old before they discover the original story!)
