    First published in 1816 and generally considered Jane Austen's finest work, Emma is a humorous portrayal of a heroine whose injudicious interferences in the life of a young parlour-boarder in a neighboring village often lead to substantial mortification. Austen brings to life a myriad of engaging characters as she presents a mixture of social classes as she did in Pride and Prejudice.

    Emma is excellently narrated. The characters and storyline are really brought to life. Great audio quality, too.

    When Mrs. Dashwood is forced by an avaricious daughter-in-law to leave the family home in Sussex, she takes her three daughters to live in a modest cottage in Devon. For Elinor, the eldest daughter, the move means a painful separation from the man she loves, but her sister Marianne finds in Devon the romance and excitement which she longs for.

    Jo says: "Superb - Justice to Jane Austen and Emma Thompson"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    Bought this for my wife. She'd read Jane Austen in high school, but just "couldn't get it into it" then. After a while, she saw the A&E video of "Pride & Prejudice" and loved it, so her interest in Jane Austen was revived. Now she just soaks up anything Jane Austen. This audio recording was excellently done and my wife has listened it to probably a half dozen times! Great audio quality, too.

    In this charming sequel to Anne of Green Gables, the unpredictable red-headed heroine returns for more wonderful adventures. When Anne Shirley first came to the beautiful Canadian town of Avonlea, she was a mischievous, talkative orphan who captured the hearts of everyone she met. Now, a few years later, Anne is a young woman with new dreams.

    Dee says: "Barbara Caruso is excellent"
    "Childhood remembered"
    Overall

    I bought this book for my wife, who loved "The Anne Books" while she was growing up. And my wife loved this audio version as well. The narration does an excellent job capturing the moods and voices of each character. Great audio quality, too.

    Most of us remember The Wizard of Oz as the film starring Judy Garland and Bert Lahr. But the film was based on an immensely popular early 20th century Oz series. In these novels, Oz is the utopian land beyond the rainbow where threats are turned back with valor and ingenuity. Their success is due to the way they induce children to look for the element of wonder in the world around them.

    Patti says: "Narrator Unimpressive"
    "A Classic Come to Life"
    Overall

    I watched the Wizard of Oz on TV every year as a child, but I do not remember reading the book. Because time is so precious, I got the audio version - and it's very well done. In fact, the narration brings this Classic to Life. Great audio quality, too.
