disappointed

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I was disappointed by this classic. While imaginative, and lots of good imagery, the overall message is mixed up.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Not had Toad get away with his crimes.

What about Curtis Sisco’s performance did you like?

Easy to understand,

A well loved classic

Lazy summer days before entering the adult world of responsibility. A picnic joined by friends and not over run by ants. The Wind in the Willows brought back some of the best of childhood without bringing all that angst and hassle laying under the surface for most of us.

Relax and enjoy Mole, Rat, and even Mr Toad as they explore life, the English countryside and stretch the boundaries of their world. This children's classic is for more than children. And running about 6 hours, it is one of the best bargains for your money you can find (just buy it and save your credits for a book that is expensive).

American accent and pronounciation

Please narrators, use correct pronunciation. Quay is not pronounced "Qway", correct way to say this word is "key". I prefer to hear UK accents particularly for British writers, it took a while to tune in to the American accent. Should have listened to a sample before purchasing. Lovely story and good characterisation by Curtis Sisco

Wanted a British version!

Not a fan of the American monotone narrator! Nothing like the crisp English accented stories I remember listening to as a child.

Wind in the Willows

If you could sum up The Wind in the Willows in three words, what would they be?

This book is worth reading again and again. The reading is so good you can almost see the places

What did you like best about this story?

The descriptions are so good you can almost see the houses and places

Have you listened to any of Curtis Sisco’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No

A great story badly read.

The narrator is unable to pronounce English as written. He lacks the rhyme and emphasis the story deserves. It is very poor when compared with the earlier BBC version. Sadly I can't recommend it as it is not up to the expected standard.

Sadly poor

A wonderful story completely ruined by an American accent with no theatrical ability and no inflection

A true waste of money
