    Story
    "For a change the movie is better than the book"

    I got kind of caught up in the Mary Poppins thing after enjoying "Saving Mr. Banks" with my college-age children. So I figured why not see what the book is all about. Now granted I did not spend time reading deeply into the characters, but I found Mary to be mean. Yes, she is providing the kids with lots of fun and exciting experiences, but she is not always nice to them. Not even in a stern, British, Elizabethan manner, just kind of mean. If you are a movie fan then you will enjoy items from the movies (no singing!).

    Story
    "Excellent narration!"
    Would you listen to Mary Poppins again? Why?

    Absolutely! It's a great story, and the narrator is fabulous! She does way more than just read the story - she actually acts it out, which makes for a really interesting listen.


    What other book might you compare Mary Poppins to and why?

    Little Women. Like Mary Poppins, it has children as main characters and clear morals to each tale.


    Which character – as performed by Sophie Thompson – was your favorite?

    That's a toughie, but the panda voice was among my favorites.

    Story
    "boring"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    the guy reading the book was monotone.( to say the least!) After one paragraph my eight yr
    old was no longer interested in it. she said he read too slow for her & she likes reading for herself. I don't blame her after that introduction. people don't waste your time.
