    Come with us to an Enchanted Place, a forest where Winnie-the-Pooh lived with Piglet, Rabbit, Owl, Eeyore, Kanga, and Little Roo. The stories are about Christopher Robin and these good companions having wonderful times getting in and out of trouble. It is all very exciting and, really, quite thrilling no matter how young or old you may be. It is painful to try and imagine what the world would be like without them.

    "Can't stand the reader"
    Overall

    It may be that I have heard Alan Bennett's reading of Pooh for 15 years and I am used to it, but I couldn't get past this reader's voice for Pooh, Christopher Robin and Piglet. At that point I stopped. We needed to replace our Alan Bennett tapes and I couldn't find new ones so I thought this would do. I realize Pooh is a bear of very little brain, but the reader not only gives him no brain at all, but makes him sound like a brainless old man with a sore throat. It is a voice much more suited to Eeyore. Christopher Robin sounds much too old and Piglet gives a little farty noise (that is supposed to be an oink) every time he speaks. That said, the reader's plain narrator voice is very good. As that was the only sample audible gave, I thought that I would enjoy the rest of the voices. I'm off to find another Alan Bennett.
