    Mary Lennox, a sickly and contrary little girl, is orphaned to dim prospects in a gloomy English manor - her only friend is a bed-ridden boy named Colin whose prospects may be dimmer than hers. But when Mary finds the key to a Secret Garden, the magical powers of transformation fall within her reach. A beloved classic of children's literature The Secret Garden tells an inspirational tale of transformation and empowerment.

    Matthew says: "Shockingly bad narration"
    "A classic book, but it the narration is awful"

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I love this story, and have reread it many times, but I cannot recommend this audio version. The narrator is robotic and reminds me strongly of Siri. Unfortunately the stilted narration takes away from the enjoyment of the story.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A more emotional narrator!
