    "A Captivating Read!"
    Where does Lyrical Ballads rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is a fantastic and well narrated audiobook. Compared to a number of audiobooks I have listened to in which poems are recited, this, by far, has to be the best.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lyrical Ballads?

    The poem entitled "Strange fits of passion' was one of the best poems.


    Have you listened to any of Mark Meadows’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any other audiobooks by the narrator, however I shall look into more.


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

    It was an extremely engaging book, one of which I was able to remain interested with the plot and was able to read in the space of one evening.
