The reading on this book is AWFUL! I love this story and have been reading it since I was a child, but I HATED the reading of it here, I stopped listening after about 20 minutes because I simply couldn't stand the narrator. Very sad, because this is such a fabulous and sweet Christmas story. Please find a better version audible. I wish I could get my money back for this!!
the story is excellent, the narrator is awful.
it was just annoying to listen too. It's an old lady reading this book, when it's WRITTEN from the perspective of a child.. it makes NO sense.
Really fun coming of age story about a girl who had to learn to "stand on her own two feet" even when they don't work quite as well as they should. Meggy learns that family doesn't equal love and safety, but that finding good friends to help you through life are a wonderful gift.
Wasn't a big fan of the narration, especially did not enjoy her representation of Meggy. But didn't "not" enjoy it enough to stop listening. I've read the book several times on my own and simply enjoy the story itself.
