  • "What a cast!"

    Overall

    The cast of this download reads like someones dream-team! I have always loved Judi Dench, but to have her AND Jeremy Irons AND Joanna Lumley...! And to have Elaine Stritch and Donald Sinden re-teamed! I had not heard of Robert Harris before, but after I looked him up (Sir John Gielgud said that his "was the greatest voice he had ever heard") it must have been a real coup to have recorded him reading such a tragic, beautiful story. These stories are wonderful, to to have such an A+ cast reading them - perfection! The definitive collection, in my opinion.

    What a delight it is to find a true rendition of our favourite classic tales.The Three Billy Goats Gruff is read with a humour that will appeal to any child. It was lovely to see the delight on my friends young sons face when he heard the \"sound effects\" in the story.He was kept enthralled throughout and cant wait to hear more.
    I would definitely recommend these to anyone that wants to entertain a child possibly use them as a treat on a journey. The sound quality is exceptional and the story well read. I will definitely be purchasing the set and only hope they quickly release new material.

There are what may be called "Celtic Stories," which were handed down for centuries by word of mouth by professional story-tellers, who went about from clachan to clachan in the "Highlands and Islands," earning a night's shelter by giving a night's entertainment, and which have now been collected and classified for us by Campbell of Isla and others.

    There has been a death in the forest. A young woman is beside herself with sorrow. A very tiny elf whose residence was in the leaves of a rose was the first to discover the motive and plan that resulted in the death. In the moment of discovery, the elf knew he needed to inform the maiden of the murder. The story well portrays the forest penalty. We leave contemplating that our own actions might sometimes result in unexpected consequences. A classic tale narrated by Glenn Hascall.
