    "Spectacular"

    I am picky about audio books. I want them well told or not at all. This rendition of the jungle book was done beautifully. It was read so well that the full beauty of the writing was strikingly apparent. It was read with heart, and so was moving and impactful. I will most definitely listen to it many times again.

    I own 494 Audible Audio books. (See my Stunned Look) That can be a good or bad thing. Either way I'm always entertained and enlightened!

    "One of my Favorite Stories of all t time"

    Wonderful! ACTING WAS SUPERB! I'M PROUD TO ADD THIS RECORDING TO MY COLLECTION. It may be a children's
    story but it still has the power to entrance this "adult."

    Story
    "Created the jungle in my car."

    When I downloaded this selection I did not notice that it was a dramatization of the Mowgli Stories, and felt some concern when the introduction stated this fact. I don't always like cast readings with theatrical sound effects, preferring to create the theater in my mind. This was a delightful exception. The cast was superb with the voice acting, and the jungle sounds created the proper atmosphere, especially the wonderful bird songs. I was enchanted to hear favorite stories told this way. Highly recommended whether you are new to the Jungle Book or already know it well.

    "A classic!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version. I had only watched the disney (cartoon) movie.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The soundtrack.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    The White Cobra was my favorite I forgot the character's name.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I played this on a road trip, so I listened to it as I drove.


    Any additional comments?

    The jungle book is a classic, and this presentation does it justice. The soundtrack makes it even better.

    "Perfect!"

    I bought this book for my eight-year-old godson on a road trip from North Carolina to New York. He has never been in the car this long so I wasn't sure how he'd do. This book was absolutely exceptional! Between the wonderful narration, music and sound effects, it was so easy to get engrossed in the story. This performance will make you feel like you are in a theater and the acting and music is so amazing you will be able to visualize exactly what's happening. I may have enjoyed it even more than he, lol!! It was a nice distraction for a few hours between his toys and electronic games. I hadn't thought of it in advance but was so glad when it came to me while I was listening to one of my own books. Now it will always be something we plan for. Thanks audible, once again you have made us very happy!!!!!

    "Kipling at its best!"

    I had to listen to this over and over because I loved the characters so much! Great voice talents. Plus amazing actual animal sounds. I'm glad that I own this, because I will be listening to it many more times! And I will be staring it with my children.

    "What a beautiful, touching story!!!"

    I knew only the sugared Disney version and I was amazed amd touched by this beautiful original! Wonderfully played and acted... I simply could not stop until the 2,5 hours were over!!
    Highly recommend for going back to a delightful children's fantasy world, where animals have a moral codex and respect I wish we humans also had! :-)
