We started listening to Audiobooks in the car on our way to our daughter's Therapies. A beautiful story on overcoming struggles, the power of friendship, & loving others. The Reader did a fantastic job!
I enjoyed this audio version and I think the narrator did a splendid job of differentiating the voices. The book is a classic because the story is engaging, well written, and would be enjoyable for children as well as adults. Because the language is difficult the audio may be preferable to reading.
Not this version
My daughter said that she strongly disliked the narrator. She wouldn't listen to this version.
"Disappointed by the narrator"
This is a wonderful book which I have read twice before. I was eager to hear it as an audiobook. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy the narrator's voice. I found the choice of an American narrator an odd choice for this classic English story. More than that, I found Victoria McGee's voice stilted, almost like the voice of a telephone announcer. I was so put off that I have only listened to the beginning of the audiobook. I intend to try again, but I was very disappointed that I found the narrator so hard to listen to.
