    Matthew says: "Shockingly bad narration"
    "The narrator's voice is droll and monotone."

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The book is a classic and a wonderful story which is why I bought it for my daughter. The story is captivating and not written as a childs book and yet is so appealing to children.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    the narrator is awful. Her voice is monotone and devoid of emotion which is kind of important since the characters in this book are so rich and expressive. I can't beleive this was the choice for a narrator. The first audible book I bought for my daughter was the Tale of Desperaux which had an awsome narrator. Buy it if you haven't already--it won't disappoint.
