Classic done right.
Jane, of course. Just think of a world where everyone lived by her ethics.
The difficulty in listening to books you're already familiar with is that there's a tendency to "zone out" occasionally. Some narrators read in a repetitive manner which makes it very difficult to stay connected to the story. Susan Ericksen's performance had me riveted! Listening to a story with the appropriate accent is sometimes better than just trying to imagine it while reading! I almost never read or listen to anything twice, but will definitely listen to Jane Eyre again. In addition, I will look for Susan Ericksen's name when looking for new books in the future.
Great narration and story.
What I liked best was that no matter what happened to Ender, he maintained his integrity. Don't we all like to think we'd do the same?
There's a depth that's added to a story when the characters are portrayed in a way that makes them endearing, or even hated for that matter. The narration on this was inspired.
Every time poor Ender cried about just wanting to go home.
Sorry I waited so long to listen to this.
Top 5. I loved everything about this book and presentation!
When Jean begins to think about making shoes.
The "Trustee" who narrates the story.
Neil Hunt did a fabulous job on this. I would listen to this again!!
Probably wouldn't listen to it again. So many books, so little time!
I had not previously, but would choose a book narrated by him in the future.
