    Story
    "PLEASE, Poetry, NOT music !"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Eliminate the annoying musical interludes.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The selection is great and the performers are wonderful.


    What about Bill Wallis and Jenny Agutter ’s performance did you like?

    Bill Wallis is absolutely my favorite narrator and Jenny Agutter does a superb job also. They know how to read poetry aloud and their diction is so smooth.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I believe that these poems are available individually, and it appears that there is no music added. If so, I will purchase the individual poems.
