Publisher's Summary

This is a collection meant to be cherished for a lifetime. Listeners set out with timid Mole as he explores the world, learning about courage and friendship through a series of misadventures with Rat, Toad, and Badger in The Wind in the Willows. From the River Bank, tumble down the rabbit hole with Alice to a madcap world where nonsense rules in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. From Victorian England, it's on to a small New England town in Little Women, where Jo March and her three sisters struggle to achieve their dreams amid the shifting roles of women in the Civil War era. Sent to live with her uncle, orphan Mary Lennox uncovers the mysteries of Misselthwaite Manor in The Secret Garden. Listeners then journey through the English countryside and London with a gentle, hardworking horse who experiences kindness and cruelty at the hands of different masters in Black Beauty.

Whether encountering these cherished tales for the first or the 50th time, listeners will find enchantment in this collection.

    "No navigational help"
    What disappointed you about The Enchanted Collection?

    There is no navigate to the stories and I couldn't find the beginning of little woman and each book is introduced as Alice in wonderland for some reason.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narrators are great and the stories are classic.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Very soothing great to have a book read to at bed time again as an adult


    What character would you cut from The Enchanted Collection?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    It seems Amazon has deleted the audible reviews for the audiobook. It did have mane audible reviews but now the rating on this one relays on the Amazon rating for a regular paper book. Which does not help audiobook users.

    "A charming collection"

    This classic collection did not disappoint. The brilliant narration added to the charm. The characters came to life marvelously and it was hard to turn off. Because of some of the language or vocabulary the book may be a little difficult to read but when it is read to you that doesn't seem to matter. Although I loved all the stories I particularly liked Black Beauty and Little Women. Buy this for yourself or the little girl in your life you won't regret it.

    Story
    "Love love love the Secret Garden! Great voices."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Enchanted Collection to be better than the print version?

    Yes! For the Secret Garden at least, the narrator does such a fantastic job with the various accents. I have yet to listen to the rest of the collection, but my kids and I really enjoyed what we've heard so far.


    Any additional comments?

    I've been impressed with the quality; I had pretty low expectations for such a good deal on a compilation. I do wish the chapter titles gave some hint as to what story started where! With five stories; that's a lot of chapters to sort through! But really, it took just a few minutes to figure it out and make some bookmarks.

    "Perfect for bedtime!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Enchanted Collection to be better than the print version?

    I loved the narrators and they gave so much character to these beloved children's stories. I loved these classics as a child and having them read to me before bedtime brings me back to a happy place.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The best thing about listening to this collection is absolutely hearing the true English language aloud. There is a noticeable absence of slang and modern speech and the language wasn't dumbed down for young audiences.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not heard any of these narrators before.


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

    I normally listen to 15-30 minutes of a book before bed on a timer but I found myself resetting the timer on many occasions just to hear a little more.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly, highly recommend this for adults who want to feel like a child again! I also recommend it for teens and children, if only to hear how beautiful English used to be!

    "Incredible Value with Audible Membership"
    If you could sum up The Enchanted Collection in three words, what would they be?

    Imaginative, Exciting, Enchanting


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Loved the variety of narrators.


    Any additional comments?

    We of course love all these books, but as far as the narrator goes, our particular favorite is Wind in the Willows. He is fantastic & executes each voice with such skill. I only wish the chapters were better organized for ease of navigation.

    "Fantastic stories and value for money"
    Any additional comments?

    This book contains a collection of children's stories, all classics. I use this collection to help me relax and even sleep, and the gentle nature of the stories does just that. Obviously these are children's stories but they appeal to adults too. All the narrators do a great job and the length of the total collection makes it super value for money with just one credit.
    You can't go wrong.

    "Enchanted I was!"

    Excellent value for money. I particularly enjoyed Simon Vance's two readings of "Black Beauty" and "Wind in the Willows". His voice evokes so much beauty and wonder (as indeed do the stories).
