Created AND narrated by the late GREAT Orson Welles..I am again stupifed & left in AWE...
I was disappointed with this one big time. I don't want to read about teen romance and "spirit" zombies! It seems that's what it's all about. It's rediculous even in wonderland! I'm mad as a hatter for zombie lunacy but this just doesn't do anything for me.
Yes it takes off well almost continuing from where The Shining left off..but I lost interest within the first few hours. I did not listen to the rest and maybe I'm jumping the gun here, but it's just not grabbing my attention. I am a die hard King fan and always will be, but this one fell short of his talents. Disappointing.
No matter what words I choose here now, in no way can they describe how much I adore Watership Down. Not only is this audiobook perfectly written, but as Ralph Cosham narrates, the characters come to life! You can literally feel their emotions. I must say, with no exaggeration, I have chosen Watership Down as my all-time favorite for life. My daily life is dedicated to caring for animals, and this has enlightened me so much more about them! I have now incorporated the Lapine language into my day to day lifestyle as well. I sincerely love rabbits very much (and ALL animals of course!) A thousand thanks dear Richard Adams for the creation of such a masterpiece, your two darling daughters, Juliet and Rosamund who encouraged you to write it down and a thousand more to dear Ralph Cosham for bringing these precious and wonderful characters to life!
This will always be one of my favorite stories. Overall the audio, the effects & narrarators were good..with only one exception..I just think Alices's voice should've been a younger one. Joan Greenwood (Alice) sounds just like Bette Davis! Whom I ADORE by the way..but DEF NOT for the voice of Alice.
Add together a good thrilling story, a dash each of two legendary classic masters, Boris Karloff & Peter Lorre..what do you get? A savory recipe for classic perfection!
What a fantastic story! I will watch the movie & listen to this great story till my eyes & ears wear out! Can you even think of a better narrator?? It's Dorothy herself! OMGoodness..I'm clicking my heels to this one!!
With the legendary dear Mr. Boris Karloff narrating..how can you go wrong? Very classic, very good. Thank you Inner Santum for such thrilling stories!
First, the stories are by Edgar Allen Poe so DEF NO COMPLAINTS HERE!! Then second, just take a look-see at the narrators..the legendary Mr. Vincent Price and Mr. Basil Rathbone! You just can't get any better than that!! I LOVE it!!
This story is very interesting and I enjoyed it very much. K. Anderson Yancy is an AWEsome narrator & his voice is absolutely perfect for my favorite genre. The rest of the Sonic Performers are corny. Mr. Yancy stands alone, basking within his own perfection.
