I don't get much chance to read books these days so listening to them is the best option for me!
Having read the Swallows and Amazons series as a child and more recently to my children, I was delighted to see them now appearing on Audible.
I wasn't disappointed, finding it as captivating and enjoyable as I remembered it. I found the narrator engaging and he helped enhance the story for me.
I'm looking forward to moving onto Swallowdale very soon!
When you are young you hear poems without understanding half the vocabulary. It is quite funny and pleasant to listen again as an adult.
Narration - varies, and some (especially the rather exaggerated cockneys) were not to my taste.
