    One of the best-known stories in American culture, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has stirred the imagination of young and old alike for over 100 years. Best Actress nominee Anne Hathaway (Rachel Getting Married, Alice In Wonderland), fresh from filming one of this year’s most anticipated films, The Dark Knight Rises, lends her voice to this uniquely American fairy tale.

    Where does The Wonderful Wizard of Oz rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    My 5.5 year old has been listening to this on car trips. Following the story easily with the vocal characterizations. Nicely, simply done. I find some of the vocalizations a little silly, but they really help to distinguish an audio book with so many characters and one reader. It's not a full production with sound effects and multiple actors, but a sincere reading of a children's classic. I recommend it.

    (315)

    Newbery Award-winner Gary Paulsen's best-known book comes to audio in this breathless, heart-gripping drama about a boy pitted against the wilderness with only a hatchet and a will to live. On his way to visit his recently divorced father in the Canadian mountains, thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson is the only survivor when the single-engine plane crashes. His body battered, his clothes in shreds, Brian must now stay alive in the boundless Canadian wilderness.

    Story
    Where does Hatchet rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    For the first time, we found an audible story that riveted my husband, son, myself and even (at times) my 5 year old daughter. As family listening goes, this was the best book we've listened to on a long car trip, and Brian's story was discussed on hikes, at meals and long after the exciting conclusion.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The gradual development of Brian's grit and character through problem-solving, persistence and patience. The gentle repetition of words and ideas in the text works well in an audible format, both dramatically and because you don't miss any crucial points in the story. The words are repeated several times, but with building intensity.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    After the storm, when Brian realizes nature's indifference to his survival, and realizes he can survive it with what he continues to learn in the wilderness.
