magical

This is my favourite Audible download so far. Gavin Maxwell's wonderful prose had me completely enthralled, his story is beautifully and evocatively descriptive without being sentimental, and the narration is faultless. It ended too soon and I'm only sorry that the further two parts of the trilogy do not seem to be available in audio format, but I have bought the book.

Ring of Bright Water - Very bright

I really enjoyed this, mainly because the quality of the narration and the story of a life so isolated and remote it almost took you to the cottage and the countryside...you could smell it!

A Kindness to Creatures Great and Small

What a lovely book. It’s as heartwarming as when I read it as a child. The narration ads a great deal of color to the story. Lovely accent and very well told. Maxwell has an extremely descriptive and pleasant way with words. I am sad it has come to an end. But I shall plan a visit to Camusfearna and take in the sights and sounds so lovingly described.
