Interestingly magic fairytale.
The three unusual companions of Dorothy. The famous brainless scarecrow, the unhearted woodman made of tin, and the courageless lion, key characters on this fairytale.
Anne Hathaway narration was certainly something out of the ordinary, an outlier, an amazing narration indeed. I loved that trained voice of hers, but I loved even more her interpretation. I'd given her (and the story) all the stars I could, since I really enjoyed this recording.I'd definitely like to hear more books read from her, although I suspect that reading a rather large story, as it would be a novel, wouldn't be easy at all.
Probably the falling of the tin woodman over the rocks. Imagining him broken and fold into pieces was kind of sad, since he was the one capable of chopping off anything with his axe!.
Despite I knew very well the story, I had never read this book before. And I guess this may happen to everyone who has seen the classic film of the Wizzard of Oz. As a matter of fact, when I was listening the story I had an interesting mixture of the characters, sometimes in black and white, and sometimes in full color, due to the memory recalls I got from the movie.I really enjoyed the whole audiobook, and I'll surely hear it again.
Yes, it was a delightful story with so much more detail than the movie.
Dorothy, of course. Aren't we all looking for something out of reach and all need to learn that our true heart's desire is right here at home?
Anne Hathaway did an outstanding job with each of the characters.
Too many to count.
I ordered the story for my grandson who is reading the book in his English class at school. His teacher is having them compare the written story to the movie and is also having them apply the lessons to what they see in real life. Once he returned my Kindle to me, I decided to listen to it myself. So glad I did!

The wisdom of the former magician & ventriloquist when he gives hope and courage to the puppy friends of Dorothy. A masterpice that can teach us a lot about how we should be to people around us.
Alice in Wonderland - very nice to get the whole story.
The modulation of her voice for the different characters in the tale.
When the lion got courage.
It is fantastic that a book on less than four hours can be so exiting.
imaginative, classic, fun for all
My girls related best with Dorothy, but I think the Lion is my favorite.
Great Expression, and a sweet narrative.
My 6-yr old daughter was absolutely mesmerized by the story, every morning in the car on the way to school. She couldn't get ready quickly enough in the mornings to resume listening. Anne Hathaway's narration is superb and she truly brought each character distinctly to life. Highly recommended.
I would absolutely recommend this audio book to anyone, young and old! It is a delight to hear Anne Hathaway's voice - she makes the classic story so much fun to listen to.
It is a great story - better than the movie in a lot of ways.
Anny Hathaway really does a great job. She reads as if you were right there with her. She is animated and energized. Yes her pacing is perfect.
Anne Hathaway does a masterful job of reading a beloved classic. Thoroughly enjoyable for all ages!
Classic, captivating classic.
When Dorothy's house landed on the wicked witch and she takes her shoes.
Tough call, all the characters were alive with Anne Hathaway narrating. I'll go with: The Cowardly Lion.
When Oz didn't really give the characters what they wished for but pretended to gift them their request.
Anne Hathaway is a treasure of a narrator. She does an amazing job beathing life into all the characters and the chapters fly by.
Just a small town boy, trying to make it in the big city.
Probably. Anne Hathaway does an unbelievable job narrating. I have much added respect for her skills as a narrator and actor.
She did a particularly great job with the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion!
Believe it or not, I think the film may have actually been an improvement on the novel. A rare happening.
With that said, Hathaway does such a great job narrating that it's definitely worth listening to on Audible. I was smiling and laughing the whole time!
