Rooted in the past, but right for today, the NRSV continues the tradition of William Tyndale, the King James Version, the American Standard Version, and the Revised Standard Version. Equally important, it sets a new standard for the 21st century. The NRSV stands out among the many translations because it is "as literal as possible" in adhering to the ancient texts and only "as free as necessary" to make the meaning clear in graceful, understandable English.

Melodramatic, ridiculous accents, horrible pacing... name a bad narration habit and you'll find it here. A real shame since the NRSV seems to be really hard to find in audio format.

I love the story,,but the accents are beyond atrocious. The next volume features Eilonwy, and I'm dreading it.
