(P)2008 Great American Audio Company, Inc.
Wonderful dramatization, with extiting corriagraphy.
Does not have all the stories of the original Jungle book. The last two tracks are duplicates, which, accounts for longer length.
This is by far the best version of the Jungle Book we've ever heard. It's read in a dramatic fashion with music and the occasional sound effect. I just wish they had done all the mowgli stories-especially Ka's Running which is omitted. There is also one story in it that is repeated for some reason.
Mowgli defeating Sher Kahn
Yes, the differing voices and inflections helped to follow who was who
Yes - I was quite upset at the number of stories that were missing from this audiobook - I mean where were the apes? Where was Riki tiki tavi? And where was the White seal?
This felt like a bit of a cop out in that every volume of the Jungle book that I have read has contained many stories that were not on this audio book.
If it were actually unabridged. There were several chapters just left completely out.
I would have loved to love Audible.com. But when my very first purchase was a dishonest product, I have a hard time wanting to come back.
