    5 out of 5 stars 64

Come with us to an Enchanted Place, a forest where Winnie-the-Pooh lived with Piglet, Rabbit, Owl, Eeyore, Kanga, and Little Roo. The stories are about Christopher Robin and these good companions having wonderful times getting in and out of trouble. It is all very exciting and, really, quite thrilling no matter how young or old you may be. It is painful to try and imagine what the world would be like without them.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Would you be willing to try another one of Peter Dennis’s performances?

No, not ever even if I went deaf and this was offered as a cure.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment and frustration

Any additional comments?

10 minutes into a 6 hour journey I was wishing I had not chosen to listen to Winnie the Pooh read by Peter Dennis, I had to pull over and stop 3 times to stop the pompus prattle from monopolising Audible on an ipad, it was impossible to stop! I now understand road rage. There is bound to be someone who enjoys this if it is you get help!

This is seriously awful and the first Audible Audiobook I haven't listened to all the way through.
