    "Buyer Beware: Sadly it IS Abridged"
    Would you try another book from Frances Hodgson Burnett and/or Jenna-Louise Coleman?

    This is a charming reading of The Secret Garden. Jenna-Louise Coleman reads very well and with good variety in her voice for the various characters. Sadly, the title reads "unabridged" when it is anything but. I surely wish that this had been the unabridged version of this beautiful classic because I could have easily enjoyed JLC's reading for the 4-5 hours that it would take. This 55 minute version feels rushed and too simplified. What a shame. What a shame.


    Has Jenna-Louise Coleman reads The Secret Garden (Famous Fiction) turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No - the reading and the classic are excellent. The obstacle was the misrepresentation of the version.


    What about Jenna-Louise Coleman’s performance did you like?

    Her voice is lovely, lively and engaging. It is easy to listen to and truly enjoy.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Jenna-Louise Coleman reads The Secret Garden (Famous Fiction)?

    I would have cut nothing. I wish that there had been LESS cutting.

    "Not full length"

    To be honest, I got this because it was Jenna Coleman reading it, not because it was a full reading. It goes at a fast pace and I wished she had slowed down but for the price, it was well worth it.
