Pleasant enough

Just ok. The format of telling the story through one-sided letters became tedious, and the story was very predictable. I thought the narrator over-acted in her reading.

Excellent Rendition of a Classic STory

I have read this Classic book several times over the years. This is first time on Audio. The Narration was PERFECT.
This is such a delightful book it makes you happy just to hear it. I wish there we more like books like these to
add balance to all the serious and sometimes depressing books on the market.
We need more happy wholesome books to brighten our lives .

Just lovely

I fell in love with the story through the musical first—which I highly recommend. I’ve since read it twice and the second was listening to the glorious audiobook narrated by Megan who really embodies every ounce of the spirit I imagine Judy Abbott has. She reads with all of the vibrancy of spirit one could hope!

Sweet & heartwarming

Beautiful touching coming of age and finding love story of a young orphan girl in beginning of the 20th century America. The girl is funny, clever and lovably imperfect. The story is in league with Louisa May Alcott, and as much heartwarming.

A Wonderful Book

The narrator brought this beloved work to life. I could almost see the drawings from the book in her telling.

As lovely as always

I first read this book when I was young and it’s just as good as ever. An imaginative way to tell a story.
The narrator did a wonderful job of capturing the wonder of the story teller.
