In Tanglewood Tales, Nathaniel Hawthorne has rewritten many Greek myths for children. The work of Hawthorne, famed author of The Scarlet Letter, is always a delight for fans of New England's history or dark romanticism. Although Walter Zimmerman's pitch may seem at times monotone, his deliberate pacing and clear diction make these stories easy to follow. His performance is in keeping with Hawthorne's dark and serious tone. These legends originally targeted children, but today they will appeal most to adult Hawthorne fans, too.
narrorator was slightly slow and drawn out but I loved the book and I would read it again

The reading of this material was so deadpan, so boring that I could not get beyond about 15 minutes. My 6 year old reads better than this so-called "performance."
