"Journeying into the past.."
I love this book more than some others as this is the book I used to read A LOT during my early teens, even though I didn't understand some things as clearly as I do now. I remember making warm bread and tea to read this book, and both of these are linked in my mind so much that every time I pick up this book I yearn for a cup of warmth that I felt in the past. The narrator has a motherly voice, and you get a warm feeling listening to the book in her voice.
The best is the links it has got with the history of mankind, how good things used to be in the past, and hope that I can bring up my daughters as well as the ones in this book.
Her narration was superb overall. The manly voice doesn't suit her when she reads out their dialogues though.
None at all.
I can listen to this book again and again! And I will!
Beautiful story! Enjoyed the readers voice. She does a nice job. I have listened to several of her books. Love reading the classics with my two young daughters.
"Timeless story, terrible narration"
My children think SIRI is the narrator of this book. Will be trying another audio version.
This book will always be a classic. Written full of love and kindness, narrator was wonderful as well.
"A very long sermon."
The characters are not believable. Too perfect and too good. I enjoyed it more when I was 10.
This book was skillfully narrated and was one I shall never forget. A must have!
"Not for 8th grade boys"
It met my very low expectations for a book based in the civil war about girls growing up. There is much romance which I don't care for.
