It is a joy to hear this classic read so beautifully and with an English accent.
It isn't as scary listening to it read as it is in a movie or the dramatization on record that I remember as a child...and then I realized that it doesn't have any scary music in the background!
Listening to this audio book will be an ongoing Christmas tradition in our home.
Yes, if they like fantasy.
It's a heroic quest, first of all. It's misterious and compelling, and the characters in the Fellowship are wonderful.
Too many to choose.
Yes. When they found Bilbo at Elrond's house. Also when Sam insisted on going into Mordor with Frodo.
I've always loved "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy. But to hear it read aloud, and by such a masterful performer, is marvelous. Things I had skipped over, in reading the book, (like the songs and some of the descriptions), came to life in hearing it read aloud.
A delightful diversion between other books from other authors.
The relationship between the Professor and Mrs. Emerson.
The adventures of the young people, kept secret from their elders.
It's wonderful, as always.
"The Last Camel Died At Noon" was performed by someone else, and the performance was such a disappointment compared to Barbara Rosenblat's.
Amelia Peabody Emerson, as always. The main reason, I guess, is that she is the Narrator of the story. Also, her use of the English language is sophisticated and humorous.
It's fun to look forward to the next book in the series, especially to learn how Ramses has grown and what he's up to.
Over and over again. It is such a compelling story.
I was pretty horrified by it. In the films based on this book Heathcliff is presented as lovelorn and obsessed, but in the book he is rather a fiend. The ending was very compelling.
Right at the top
Dawsey. He is so warm and steady.
Everything! It made it come to life with a different narrator reading each character's letters.
A different look at World War II
Hearing a favorite book read aloud
Ambrose, because he was made so real through Philip's admiration for him and memories of him
No, but I've loved his voice when I've seen him in films.
Intriguing, suspenseful, satisfying
Jim Predeaux's recounting of his experience in Czechoslovakia to Smiley.
Haven't listened to any before
No, not until near the end.
