    "Disappointing reading of a favorite story"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I loved this book as a kid and bought it to re-read before seeing the musical/play. The woman reading it speaks clearly, but "broad Yorkshire" accents are crucial to the spirit of the story and totally missing from the narrator's range.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Victoria McGee’s performances?

    Only if she doesn't have to do anything other than an American female's voice.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Not one of the better children's books"

    While The Secret Garden is considered by some to be a classic, it is not a very interesting book for children. I could name dozens of excellent such books, but will name only The BFG which is a truly wonderful book for children.

    Narration is not great, but it is not nearly as bad as some reviewers rate it.

    "Hard to swallow"

    I love the story of The Secret Garden, but I couldn't get through this version. Very hard to listen to- monotone and without an English Accent.

    "Worst Narration"

    I LOVE The Secret Garden and didn't listen to the sample because I was just so excited to be able to listen to it. HORRIBLE decision. The narration is like listening to Siri give driving directions. I wish I could get my $2.95 back.

    "I don't get the negative reviews!"

    the narrator is so soothing I use this one to unwind before bed. I like the different voices and I'm glad they are subtle enough to flow but distinct enough to easily tell the difference.

    This is a very sweet, hopeful tale. I have recommended it to my 8-year-old granddaughter.

    "Wonderful for Special Needs Families"

    We started listening to Audiobooks in the car on our way to our daughter's Therapies. A beautiful story on overcoming struggles, the power of friendship, & loving others. The Reader did a fantastic job!

    "Dreadful! Not worth the price."
    What disappointed you about The Secret Garden?

    Awful narrative style and pacing. Do not be fooled by the low price; this is a rip-off.
