    Why has this classic been so popular over the years with its presence in films, books, radio, and television? It is the mythology of the primordial steps of man's advancement. David Ian Davies has achieved great success in capturing each character with their own unique sound.

    Overall

    I've read the original many times and quite a few of the sequels, too, and this is the first audio version of a Tarzan book I've tried. I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend it.

    Mr. Davies' gentleman's English accent seems perfectly suited for this story, and his ability to change his voice for the different characters worked well for me because he didn't overdo it.

    For some listeners: Burrough's "pulp" dialogue can be a little overwhelming at times, but if you understand the context and the time period (1912), it will be clearer. Those familiar with early adventure/fantasy fiction will recognize the genre.

  • Lady Susan

    Lady Susan was the first of Jane Austen's novels to be completed. Less known than Austen's six great later novels, it demonstrates the wit and sharp observations of Jane Austen - and is shown at its best in audiobook form, with different actresses presenting real characters as they read their letters.

    "Not the best choice for audio format"
    Overall

    Yes, this is Jane Austin, which is difficult to fault. But this story was meant to be read as written, not audibly, as much of the story revolves around dialog and the point of view. The narrator does her best and if you are familiar with the story already you will enjoy this as well. I would not recommend this as an introduction to audio Jane Austin, however.

    David Attenborough's books and broadcasts have opened the incredible world of natural history to millions of viewers and listeners. Zoo Quest for a Dragon takes us back to one of his earliest projects, when the BBC and London Zoo joined forces on several animal-collecting expeditions.

    Overall

    A completely charming and thoroughly interesting look at Sir David Attenborough's beginnings with the BBC in 1952. The making of nature films in exotic and difficult locations around the world were only part of the task for Attenborough and his colleagues; they also had to sell their ideas for a wildlife television show to the BBC. The story about the search for the Komodo Dragon is very entertaining, and his narration is flawless, of course. Highly recommended.
