    "Great narration and a classic story"
    What did you love best about Secret Garden?

    The innocence in the children's relationships, and the garden's beauty and it's magics.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character has always been Dickon.


    Any additional comments?

    I love everything about this audio-book except when I ordered it, I didn't pay much attention and didn't realize it was the abridged version! I love this narrator, but I have yet to find her narrating the unabridged version yet. If I do find her, her version would definitely be the one I buy.

    "An ageless story"

    I've read this book every few years since I was 11. A brilliant and beautiful story about childhood, nature and belief. Always makes me want to run away to the moor.

    Helena Bonham Carter does a lovely job reading. Adore HBC more now than ever.

    "Most Beautifully Read Book"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mary - We loved her transformation.


    What does Helena Bonham Carter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Helena Bonham Carter read this book so beautifully. We were as much entranced by the story as we were her narration. It was just lovely to listen to and we were so sad when it was over.


    Any additional comments?

    My girls (9 & 10) loved this book more than any audio book we've listened to thus far. A great story and a fabulous performance. They asked me to please find more stories read by the same narrator! Not sure what I can find to top this one. I'd highly recommend this one.

    Story
    "Very abridged, but wonderfully read"

    I bought this version behause it was narrated by Helena Bonham Carter and I truly enjoyed listening to her reading of it. Only too late did I discover that the book was abridged, and very drastically so. The main points of the story are all there, but not much more. This is the reason for the low story score. So much of the magic is gone, of Colin's development into a normal boy, of the transformation of the garden. It was a good reminder of the original book, but not nearly enough.
