    "Talk Talk Talk Talk"

    I did not enjoy this at all. It was mostly talk. The animals loved to have meetings and discuss. I don't know how a kid could enjoy this and the narrator kind of annoyed me. I could see where Disney could make it into something enjoyable, but not the written form.

    "Great narration. The voices were simple"

    but very consistent. A nicely narrated authentic version of an imaginative story. Lots of folklore and plain language. Stories from this time period are always nice to listen to because the vocabulary is very descriptive and the grammar is wonderful. Love British narrators.

    Story
    "a classic familiar in many ways"

    a classic that has lost much of its freshness and appeal. But because part of this tale has entered pop culture either directly or indirectly, there is an haha sense of discovery when reading this.

    Story
    "Departing from the Praise"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I can see from the reviews that my opinion is in the minority- so I suppose nearly everyone else.


    What was most disappointing about Rudyard Kipling’s story?

    I guess the book is outdated for today's young audience. I was looking forward to listening to this with my five year old (maybe it was my fault for not understanding that this book is for a more mature audience- but I don't know how one would know that). Primarily, the book is racist, sexist, and brutal which are not good themes for impressionable children. I'm sure I would love the book if it I was only concerned about myself. Additionally, the performance was really droll- my children would fall asleep right away. We listen to audio books together every night after reading and falling asleep during a book is very unusual for them- they usually hang on every word.


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

    I don't think so.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are thinking this is a family book, I would wait until the children are mature enough to understand that the themes in this book are outdated and can just enjoy the literature instead of worrying about the messages it might be conveying.

    Story
    "Not The Disney Version"

    Interesting to listen to, entertaining. From Kipling's original story; not the kid-friendly Walt Disney animated version. Peter Batchelor gives a commendable performance with voice changing and expressive emotion. If you are into the classics, this is worth your time.
