Mary Poppins | [P. L. Travers]

Mary Poppins

Mary Poppins is like no other nanny the four Banks children have ever seen. She whirls into their home, and "spit-spot", she works her inimitable brand of magic to make even the bland seem extraordinary. An endless source of fascinating adventure, she slides up the banister, produces an array of tricks from her seemingly empty carpetbag, and ensures the Banks' lives will never be the same.

    "Brilliant!"

    I was not really sure what to expect when i purchased this performance. I had never been exposed to any version except for the Disney movie. I have to say that i was quite impressed with the book, and the reading. I found it charming, and will enjoy listening to it from time to time in the future.

    I enjoy historical fiction, sci-fi and some fantasy. After listening to multiple books in a series, I like to sprinkle in a biography or two

    "Very difficult to listen"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Perhaps it was the dialect or maybe it was the recording quality... but I tried to listen to this story in the car on a long trip with my children and a senior citizen. Not one of us could follow a story with which we were very familiar.

    "Practically Perfect in every way"
    What made the experience of listening to Mary Poppins the most enjoyable?

    Great narration of a great book. This book was one of my favorites when I was a child. The narrator's performance makes this one of my favorite audiobooks as an adult. Sophie Thompson's accent, voice, and reading is as engaging as the story. Extremely enjoyable and a great use of a credit.

    "Great Experience"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a great book for kids to listen to. My daughter enjoyed it, but she did like the movie better.


    What does Sophie Thompson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mary Poppins needs to be read with an English accent, and Sophie Thompson does a wonderful job.

    "loved this classic"
    What made the experience of listening to Mary Poppins the most enjoyable?

    I loved listening to this classic! It was well written and well read. Sophie Thompson did a great job preforming each part and captured Mary's character beautifully. I can say enough!

    "Create some memories"

    My son and I used to listen to MARY POPPINS in the car when he was little, and although this isn't the version we listened to, it has brought back memories for both of us! The story is as charming as ever, but I was a bit disappointed with the reading. Nevertheless, you will do your children and yourself a big favor by downloading this audio book and listening together!

    "Awful"
    Would you try another book from P. L. Travers and/or Sophie Thompson?

    The woman sounds like she's trapped under a bed and has to read the book as quickly as possible.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Sophie Thompson’s performances?

    No
