"The book has liveliness and felicity, tenderness and unexpectedness, grace and humor and praise of life...that only the most highly imaginative stories seem to grow." (Eudora Welty, The New York Times Book Review)
"White simply shares his story so intimately that adult listeners notice every nuance...For children the story of Wilbur and Charlotte will be sheer delight...White's story still has the power to mesmerize and teach us great lessons of friendship and life." (AudioFile)
I have a 4 year-old girl and an 11 year-old boy who both enjoyed Charlotte's Web. We have listened to it 3xs already this summer, and I have over-heard both children repeating lines from the story! It is great to know they are enjoying the book as much as i did when i was growing up!
no. rading was way b etter and the reader's voice and delivery was disappointing.
His reading was very dull.
This is a classic tale made all the more enjoyable by the narration of the author himself E.B. White. Enjoyable for adults and children alike.
This may be a great story, but its presentation here is untenable. The author reads the work and does a very bad job. There is no life in the story. It's a pity though, with such talented narrators available, that it should have turned out this way. The author should stick to authorship and leave narration to someone more gifted.
