    Story
    "FANTASTIC STORY, FUN AND ENTERTAINING."
    If you could sum up Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH in three words, what would they be?

    I loved this book almost as much as Watership Down. Well written and excellent performance.

    Story
    "A great classic brought to life on audio"

    I spend a lot of time with my daughter listening to audio books. This is one of our favorites. The narrator reads well with no strange pronunciations or annoying inflections. I love it when the narrator is so good that the listening experience flows without any glitches from something annoying that the listener has to consciously ignore.

    The story is a classic from my childhood and it still grasps interest of young readers today.

    If you're tempted at all you should get it. In my opinion you won't be sorry.

    Story
    "uneven sound"
    Would you try another book from Robert O’Brien and/or Barbara Caruso?

    We would most certainly try another book, but only if the audio was sorted. Ms. Caruso raises and drops her voice which makes listening to it frustrating. Lots of up/down of the volume.


    Any additional comments?

    My children, especially the 5-year-old, loved it.

    Story
    "Was fun."
    What made the experience of listening to Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH the most enjoyable?

    Well as a fan of The Secret of NIMH growing up, my favorite part of actually listening to the book was all the extra details I never knew of that they didn't put in the movie.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH?

    The story of NIMH was the most memorable moment for me. Very interesting and entertaining.


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

    I wasn't able to listen to this all in one sitting. I don't think I could have sat still this long.
