  • "It still send shivers half a centur..."

    Overall

    As a teenager in the fifties I heard the original broadcast; the following day at school my friends and I could talk of little else; our excitement at this magical experience of this new work was palpable. The book became - and remains - a treasured possession and I have heard and seen other productions. Investing in the Audible version so long after I wondered how my experience would stand up to my memories. All I can say is that the original excitement returned and the shivers remained...

    Under Milk Wood is Dylan Thomas's undisputed and unforgettable masterpiece - an affectionate, but hilarious portrait of a small Welsh town. The classic 1954 recording, featuring a perfect cast led by Richard Burton as "First Voice", is rightly considered to be definitive. This collection also includes two earlier radio programs: Return Journey to Swansea and Quite Early One Morning, read by Dylan Thomas and others.

  • "A classic"

    Overall

    One of my earliest Audible purchases and still among the most memorable. I often return to dip into the novels again. A beautiful production catching the humour, drama and poignancy of Thackery. The quality of the acting is superb and an excellent way to enter the span of this classic sequence. Do not hesitate to enjoy this production whether you are already a lover of the major nineteenth century novels or a newcomer to this world.

    As a young man, Ed Catmull had a dream: To make the world's first computer-animated movie. He nurtured that dream first as a Ph.D. student at the University of Utah, where many computer science pioneers got their start, and then forged an early partnership with George Lucas that led, indirectly, to his founding Pixar with Steve Jobs and John Lasseter in 1986. Nine years later and against all odds, Toy Story was released, changing animation forever.

    Performed by the author and five of Britain's leading actresses, Alan Bennett's tales are full of quirky, insightful detail that bring the characters vividly to life. From Julie Walters' portrayal of an actress seeking fame to Anna Massey's alcoholic vicar's wife, these individuals are linked by their self-delusion, desperation, and vulnerability.

    This is one of a series of six meditation recordings by Glenn Harrold and Ali Calderwood, which are based upon the ancient Solfeggio musical scale. Each note in this scale has specific healing properties, and this recording uses the third note, which resonates to a frequency of 528hz. This frequency works to heal broken DNA, healing on all levels - emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical - bringing relief from anxiety, fatigue, and control issues. It helps to release negative thinking.
