    Swallows and Amazons, the book that started it all in 1930, introduces the Walker family, the camp on Wild Cat Island, the able-bodied catboat "Swallow," and the two intrepid Amazons, plucky Nancy and Peggy Blackett.

    Overall

    I have read this series since I was a child. The reading met all of my expectations. I greatly enjoyed hearing this reading of Swallows and Amazons and I hope Audible does the whole series. It was particularly fun to listen to as I was biking along the Pacific coast while listening. The Swallows and Amazons were exploring the lake and I was also out in a similar area. This added something to just reading at home, making the audible book better than a physical book.

    One of the best children's series of all time.

    I know the story, but I couldn't understand this version.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    not sure


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Not understandable. Gave up after an hour.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No. And I love the printed version.

    For anyone who loves sailing and adventure, Arthur Ransome's classic Swallows and Amazons series stands alone. Originally published in the UK over a half century ago, these books are still eagerly read by children, despite their length and their decidedly British protagonists.

    Swallowdale is my favorite book in the Swallows and Amazons series. This reading is well done. Enjoy!
