I tried to read the print version, but it was too laborious. However, I have always considered Jane Fonda's speaking voice, her enunciation, to be unbelievably beautiful. Thus, when I saw the audio version here, I decided to go with her once again on this journey. Her storyteller's voice captured me right away.
Were I to meet her, one of the things I'd say is this, "Please, narrate more books. You have such a gift for narration: a storyteller's magic."
Insightful and poignantly funny. It is an "Oh...my God this is good!" audiobook. Tina Fey did an amazing job as the narrator, too.
The narrator, Christopher Cazenove, is so — so, so — fantastic. The ideal person for this book.
I had heard Whoopi Goldberg recommend this book on TV. And, I thought, "Really...'Peter Pan'!" What could she find fascinating about "Peter Pan"? So, I clicked on the book here, and "oh...my gosh!" 10 sentences in and I was hooked — terrible pun but true. Now, I am so glad I took her suggestion: it is storytelling magic at its best. J.M. Barrie's imagination and fluidity of thought and word is irresistibly powerful.
What a passionate and loving man he is. It came through every word. And, he is a tremendously talented narrator.
I don't know how I found this one. I absolutely do not remember. However, it's been a blast. It's amazingly fun to stumble across a book this fun.
Wow — she is the ideal narrator for this type of work. Delightful.
There is no doubt that Stephen Fry has entered our universe in order to narrate. I'm so glad he's chosen the works of Douglas Adams as part of his destiny. He gives good voice.
Every chapter is memorable.
Yes, I've been following Stephen Fry for a long time.
No. No. No. I like spreading a good listen out.
I had read this years ago — and I even have an autographed copy from the much-missed Douglas Adams. When I saw that Stephen Fry had done the narration, I decided to fly away once more on the brilliance and humor of Douglas Adams.
Of course — it's just the sort of fun-for-fun nonsense that one shouldn't listen to 5x in a summer but one must.
She has a whimsical way of puttering about through eccentric characters caught in all sorts of muddles.
Who wouldn't want to be read to by Julie Andrews?!?! Her voice brought such allure and enchantment to the tale.
No — not at all: Why? When I enjoy something, I want it to last. I plan on listening to this more than once.
How is it possible that she hasn't narrated more books for others, too, apart from her own! She is a born storyteller. She has such storytelling magic: oodles of it. She should do more more narrations: much, much, much more. She's one of the best narrators around.
It was a fun munch of thoughts and teasings and insights on a soapy subject.
I've always liked being read to by Stephen Fry. He's the person one would want to narrate most tales.
I wish he would narrate more books on audible.com. It's unsporting that his list of narrations doesn't top 50 tomes yet.
