  • "Action packed, simple and fun!"

    Overall

    My son really enjoyed this story, he is 6 years old and has seen the Disney film so was aware of the characters and the plot line. We particularly liked how the story is told from the dogs point of view which brings a certain humour to the narration. Recommended for all children of this age range as an easy to follow story.

Mr. Dearly is a "financial wizard" who has been granted life-long tax exemption and lent a house on the Outer Circle in Regent's Park in return for wiping out the government debt. The dogs consider the humans their pets, but allow the humans to think that they are the owners. Missis gives birth to a litter of 15 puppies.

    "Childhood revisited"

    Overall

    I was transported back about 30 years as I listened to this wonderful multilevelled story which I last read as a child. Kenneth Branagh has done a marvellous narration which truly brought this tail to life. Such strong images capture the imagination and the parable nature of this book really comes through now I listen as an adult. I would recommend this to anyone old or young. Lewis at his best.

  • "A lovely story"

    1 of 1 helpful votes

    I really enjoy Arthur Ransome and have read the books since I was young. When Audible made the audio books available I was delighted. However the voices I have created for the characters in my own head are so firmly established that I found the narrators voice didn't work for me at all. I understand that Gareth Armstrong needed to create different accents to seperate the chracters but really Nancy and Peggy with an "eccky thump" accent! The girls were both privately educated and brought up in an upper middle class houshold.
    I think maybe I will stick with books (now on my reader) and the characters will sound as I want them to sound.

    For anyone who loves sailing and adventure, Arthur Ransome's classic Swallows and Amazons series stands alone. Originally published over a half-century ago, the twelve books are still eagerly read by children and adults alike - by all those captivated by the world of adventure and imagination. Such longevity is not only due to Ransome's unparalleled gift of storytelling, but also his championing of qualities such as independence and initiative; virtues that appeal to every generation, whether young or old.
