The adventures of a charismatic band of animal characters in the English countryside. One of the best loved stories of all time.

I was disappointed by this classic. While imaginative, and lots of good imagery, the overall message is mixed up.
Not had Toad get away with his crimes.
Easy to understand,
Lazy summer days before entering the adult world of responsibility. A picnic joined by friends and not over run by ants. The Wind in the Willows brought back some of the best of childhood without bringing all that angst and hassle laying under the surface for most of us.
Relax and enjoy Mole, Rat, and even Mr Toad as they explore life, the English countryside and stretch the boundaries of their world. This children's classic is for more than children. And running about 6 hours, it is one of the best bargains for your money you can find (just buy it and save your credits for a book that is expensive).
"Wind in the Willows"
This book is worth reading again and again. The reading is so good you can almost see the places
The descriptions are so good you can almost see the houses and places
"A great story badly read."
The narrator is unable to pronounce English as written. He lacks the rhyme and emphasis the story deserves. It is very poor when compared with the earlier BBC version. Sadly I can't recommend it as it is not up to the expected standard.
A wonderful story completely ruined by an American accent with no theatrical ability and no inflection
A true waste of money
"The wrong accent"
Being read by a more acceptable accent
The story is fine and traditional
By being read in a more acceptable accent
