The Ramayana is one of the best-known epics in the world. It is the tale of Rama, the Prince of Ayodhya, who exiles himself to the forest for 14 years to honor his father's Word.
In the forest, Rama, his wife, Sita, and his brother, Lakshmana, meet new friends and unusual foes, and each day brings new adventures. But Ravana of Lanka, the King of Demons, ruins it all by abducting Sita. To rescue her, Rama enlists the help of Hanuman and his monkey army.

Pretty OK on all dimensions, do recommend
Yeah, I might. It's targeted towards children, and I think it does a good job of it. The narrator did a pretty good job, it's clear he tried very hard. Sometimes, he might have tried a little too hard (faking a female voice with falsetto is generally a bad idea), but I'm happy to forgive those shortcomings. Yes, I would listen to it again.
I suppose it would be comparable to "Heroes, Gods and Monsters of the Greek Myths," by Bernard Evslin, in both tone and intent.
His rendition of the male characters are pretty good.
This is a funny question, I'm not sure why I'm being asked this.
In summary, although some aspects of it were a bit annoying, they didn't take anything away from the underlying experience. It is an important piece of our human heritage, and told well for a modern audience. I would recommend it.
