    "Wonderful narration, not the full text though..."

    Being a fan of Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame, I was pleased to find this reading my Derek Jacobi! He does a lovely job of narrating and capturing the various character's personalities. I was only saddend to find out (due to not paying attention) that this is not the full text of the book, but a 1hr condenced dramatized version. I would love to hear Jacobi read the full book!

    "Love this story"
    What did you love best about The Wind in the Willows (Dramatised)?

    It was lovely listening to all the different voices.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Wind in the Willows (Dramatised)?

    Rat and Mole being on the River


    What does Sir Derek Jacobi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His ability to change from character to character.


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

    I would've loved to but it's not feasible.

    "Always great."

    Have loved this book since I was a child and to hear it read to me once again, now I'm old, well, was simply delightful. Well done!
