    Generations of children have been charmed by this enchanting work, and Brilliance Audio is proud to introduce its own version with multi-Grammy Award-winner Jim Dale as narrator. To delight the millions of Jim’s fans, his reading of Peter and the Wolf will include unforgettable vocal characterizations of the various animals, young Peter, and Peter’s grumpy old grandfather. The music of Peter and the Wolf, including some of the best-known classical melodies, is superbly performed by the award-winning Seattle Symphony, led by music director Gerard Schwarz.

    This is a classic story that was done very well. The music wasn't cut short as in other recordings I've listened to, and Jim Dale can do no wrong.

    They killed me. They healed me. They changed me. Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago's vampires announced their existence to the world---and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker...and this one decided that the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead.

    Story

    I am a huge fan of this series and was delighted that I could now enjoy it as an audiobook. This is a great book that was almost a great audiobook. Although the narrator played secondary characters very well, her interpretation of Merit was, at times, way over the top. Switching 'voices' during dialogue was occasionally a problem, as well as missing inflection (if someone is condescending he should sound condescending). What's most frustrating is that this book isn't horrible, just inconsistent in it's performance. What I thought was going to be an auto-buy series has turned into a "should I or shouldn't I" situation for future purchases.
