I thoroughly enjoyed this production. It's well done and well voiced. The narrator did a terrific job with the voicing of the characters in the book. The annotations at the beginning are nicely done and add to the experience. Overall I thought it was one of the better performances I've listened to in all the years I've been listening to books on audio.
The performance is what's best about this one. Baum wrote an excellent story and in this it is excellently voiced.
The narrator made this experience. His voice is warm and one you want to listen to. To me, it felt like L Frank Baum himself was reading the book. I loved that!
It is, and I did. Oz is magical and I couldn't wait to visit again.
I'm glad I bought this and I'm glad I picked this edition. Out of all the samples I tried, this is the one I liked the best. I recommend this for anyone who wants to experience what it might be like to have Mr. Baum himself read the Oz story to you.
I tried several others but this is my favorite edition of The Wizard of Oz. I liked the narrator. His voice is pleasant to listen to, and he does a terrific job with voicing the characters in the book. To me it seemed like L Frank Baum himself was reading the book.
I also liked that it is an annotated edition. The notes at the beginning of the added to the experience for me. I didn't know much of anything about Baum or the Oz books, until I listened to it. It gave me a better understanding of it all. Bravo
It's hard to compare The Wizard of Oz to anything else except maybe Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.
The performance was excellent and one of the best out of all the Oz narrators. His voice is easy to listen to and he does an excellent job voicing the characters. It really did feel to me like L Frank Baum himself was reading the book.
Dorothy could always go home, but she would have missed out on the greatest adventure of her life.
Excellent edition of an excellent story.
