Great reader bring characters to life

A classic story of course. But what really brings it to life is the amazing job done by the reader to voice all of the characters. So many different accents in characters male and female seamlessly kept consistent in their roles.

Brings the Story to Life

As a play, this book is hard to read because you don't get to see the visuals as the writer originally intended. But, with the narration, you are able to understand how the characters feel and get a better sense of the tone. The audiobook allows you to connect with the story and characters. The play only gives dialogue and directions but not what the characters are thinking, with the audio you are better able to understand their feelings and overall it allows for a much greater experience than just reading the book on its own.
