Wrong Narrator

I love this story -- it is by far one of my favorites. However, this Narrator doesn't seem to get that it is a love story. He just reads the words -- without any emotion at all. This could be read better with someone who understands and likes the story.

Best media purchase of ever.

This audiobook is amazing. I've purchased no book, movie, album, or tv show that has given me as much joy as this recording of Longfellow's Evangeline.

Do yourself a favor, and buy this recording!
