    What did you love best about The Secret of Red Gate Farm?

    This is one of the most enjoyable Nancy Drews we've heard. We listened to it as a family over and over.


    What does Laura Linney bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Laura Linney's voice establishes Nancy Drew as a smart and sophisticated young lady. Laura's voice is very pleasant.

    A Signature Performance: Tim Curry rescues Charles Dickens from the jaws of Disney with his one-of-a-kind performance of the treasured classic. Our listeners loved this version so much that it inspired our whole line of Signature Classics.

    If you could sum up A Christmas Carol: A Signature Performance by Tim Curry in three words, what would they be?

    We listened to this in our car in December. If you can't seem to get through reading A Christmas Carol, then listening to Tim Curry read it to you is the second best method. The story is such an iconic English classic that I think everyone should read. However, it can be tedious and exhausting to get through for those who prefere modern lit. But, this audio reading makes this accessible to everyone, including elementary aged children.Dicken's imagery and metaphors are so wonderful and Tim Curry's performance is amazing.

    Blue bells will be singing horses! This strange message, attached to the leg of a wounded homing pigeon, involves Nancy Drew in a dangerous mission. Somewhere an elderly woman is being held prisoner in a mansion. Nancy is determined to find and free Mrs Eldridge. While working on the case, the young detective's close friend, Helen Archer, begs her to solve a weird mystery.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    We were so accustomed to Laura Linney's narration that this new girl threw us off. Laura Linney made Nancy Drew sound sophisticated and smart. The new reader sounds like Ruby from Max and Ruby. We like Ruby's voice but not for Nancy Drew. It would have been allright had we started the series with this one.

    The actual story is probably one of the best Nancy Drews


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Not our favorite narrator for this piece.
