I love The Secret Garden. It's a long-time favorite of mine. The narrator gave an ok performance. It wasn't poor enough to make me stop reading, but I felt she was missing the emotion behind the words.
My daughters love the story. They Didn't want to stop listening to it. Great ending. It left us having great discussions about character and seeing things differently. A reference to go back to.
I loved the part when Mary and Collin were fighting.
The narrator was to the core and interesting. Aweeeeesomeeeeeeeee
Burnett yes, McGee no.
I have loved this story since childhood!
Almost anyone. The narration is what I could not handle. Mostly her repetitive emphasis style.
The novel it self is AMAZING. One of my favorite stories of all time. I wanted to listen to it over the holiday, but couldn't get past the narration.
I would read another book by Frances Hodgson Burnett. I would not however listen to another book narrated by Victoria McGee. If it weren't that the story was so good, I would have stopped listening because of the narration. Very stiff and, no personality.
The story! It's a classic for a reason.
The relationship between Mary and Colin. Despite the fact that they start out as entirely unlikable characters, the relationship transforms them and in the process makes the reader care deeply for them.
Anyone who can enjoy listening to a book read by the worst narrator EVER.
The story is a good story; I read it as a child.
NEVER AGAIN. She is the worst narrator. I mistakenly bought this book without checking to see if she narrated. Much to my dismay, she did. I learned my lesson after not being able to listen to another of the books she does. I will make sure to never buy a book that she narrates.
