A Classic Wonderfully Narrated

What did you love best about The Secret Garden?

I have always loved this story and loved the musical as well so there isn't much to say -- It's an inspiring classic and one I can now share with my kids in an audiobook! The narrator does a wonderful job with the story and was fun to listen to.

I Loved this Rendition...

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

It doesn't matter how many times I read or listen to this book, I keep rediscovering the reason why it will always remain one of my all-time favorite stories. The narrator does a splendid job with the various characters and is able to convey the personalities of each child so well that you can almost picture them in your mind acting out the parts.
There is not much more to be said about the writer wonderful skills and the story itself.
Even if you have already read the book or listened to other versions, just go ahead and listen to this one. You'll fall in love with this book all over again.

A classic brought to life!

I have always loved the musical of The Secret Garden and I remember owning the book when I was younger, but I don't remember actually reading it, now I wish I had read it.

Listening to this book was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. I didn't want to put it down (or press the pause button!) The story is a classic for a reason, well written, engaging characters, and a beautiful setting, plot that moves and engages all characters.

The narration from Heidi Gregory was perfect and truly brought the story to life. Her English accent fit the setting of the book and the characters. The Yorkshire accent in the book was also easy to understand. This audiobook might become my favorite audiobook.

Enjoyable

Enjoyable children's story about a ten year old girl. The first chapter reminded me of 'A Little Princess', but that quickly changed as the main character is really not that good natured.
I liked the writing style and the narrator's voice, but the audio sound was not always consistent and for that reason I gave it a 4*.
Received this audiobook for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

Glad I finally listened to it

What did you like best about this story?

This book has been on my list for a long time. Then, I stumbled upon a free copy and I'm providing this voluntary review. The story didn't hook me right away but it did a few chapters in. Being a classic, I wasn't entirely sure how I'd like it. By the end, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved the book. As the characters developed, the whole story blossomed for me. I especially liked the positivity that grew by the end and the sense of being able to improve oneself.

What about Heidi Gregory’s performance did you like?

I enjoyed the narration and especially the accent that Gregory brought to life.

The Secret Garden

Mary Lennox is a young girl who never really got the love she deserved from her parents. She spent the first part of her childhood in India until she became an orphan. She was then moved to her uncle’s home in Yorkshire, England. She started out as sickly and frail with a very bad temper. She eventually starts coming out of her shell and becoming more interested in the world around her. She actually begins to like people and people begin to like her. I really enjoyed this book, it is probably my 5th time reading it, the last time I read it was out loud to my oldest child when she was in first or second grade.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher courtesy of Audiobook Blast. Heidi Gregory was flawless in her performance. She has such great talent.
