I think reading an old book under the trees is terribly romantic, but mostly I just have time to listen to them while I do dishes.

    For 15 years the weaver Silas Marner has plied his loom near the village of Raveloe, alone and in exile, cut off from faith and human love, while amassing a hoard of golden guineas.

    I decided to read this book again after remembering the fond memories I had from reading it as a teenager. I am glad I did because I don't think I fully appreciated it then. I think I could safely recommend this book to anyone.

    I thought the narration was wonderful. I think Andrew Sachs got all the characters spot on.

    After a sad and neglected childhood as an orphan, Jane Eyre was hired by Edward Rochester as governess for his ward. Jane was pleased with the quiet country life at Thornfield, with the beautiful old manor house and gardens, with the book-filled library, and with her own comfortable room. But there were stories of a strange tenant, a woman who laughed like a maniac, and who stayed in rooms on the third floor.

    I have never been able to decide on a favorite book, but sometimes I think it is Jane Eyre. I could praise the book, but I am going to assume that most people reading these reviews is more interested in the narrator.

    I have listened to Jane Eyre once before, and I thought the voice for Jane was all wrong. I gave Susan Erickson 5 stars because I felt she did justice to all my beloved characters. The only thing that occasionally bothered me was her fast pace during some of the dialogue. I still plan on listening to this version again and think it deserves 5 stars, but sometimes I would find myself thinking "slow down a little!" I listened to all the samples for the unabridged version, and I glad I chose this one.
