Yes, over and over, The story is charming and Emma Thompson narrates it
It is a classic fairy tale but seemed deeper than most.
Her narration brought all the characters to life in a most enjoyable and lively way..
I am looking forward to listening to more Rabbit Ears Entertainment books. There is a broad range of stories narrated by famous persons. Check them out for yourself. You are sure to find one or two that are perfect hor your family.
I would with some reservation. There is a lot of coming of age sexuality that I am sometimes uncomfortable with. Also there is a hint to bigger story but the leading up to the climax seems really drawn out (unnecessarily so in my opinion). Howvere the language is lyrical and I am enjoying the narrator who's voice seems perfect for her character.
I have read none of his books before.
I had read a negative review of the narrator and was almost persuaded not to by this book. The Washington Post rated it very highly so I went ahead. At first I had the speed a little too fast and I did find the voice jarring BUT I slowed it down ( to normal) and then found the narration to be very in keeping with the mood and subject of the book. It was enjoyable to listen to.
I have not finished this book ( I am about 2/3s through it). I am enjoying it but do think it is unnecessarily long for the story it presents. If I had bought an actual book I probably would have skimmed alot of it. I do recommend the book however because it is beautifully written. Worth a credit.
Yes I would recommend this amazing audio book. Be prepared to be unable to stop listening. The story could be predictable but the way the author writes it it isn't. The suspense will carry you from page to page and you will be torn at the end, wanting to know how it ends but dreading it. The characters are well developed and become friends that you will want to keep around.
The animation is wonderful and their narration brings each of the characters to life in a special way. The first time I tried to listen to it I did not really get into it and was disappointed that I had purchased it. However the second time I was hooked from the very beginning. I knew that I would love Ms. lavinia's voice and her slight hint of an Irish accent.
I had not heard of this book but it was selected for me by Audible.com as a book I might like based on my reading preferences. i am extremely grateful that they did.
No because time is short and there are so many great books.But I would choose others by the same author and reader. I would definitely recommend it to others
