What did you love best about The Nation's Favourite Poems?
I remember when they were voted for and have to concur with the number one and most of my favourites were way up there.
Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?
John Nettles performing "If" was very moving.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Poetry is very moving and I had to read a lot of it at school so it was great to hear it again, I have the full tapes but having this abridged version for my Kindle is great.
Any additional comments?
Its often hard to get stuff from my home country on Kindle so this was a nice surprise. I would love to see more stuff available for Kindle. Real copies are so yesterday, actually I have no more room to store them!

This really is excellent, all the readers are very, very good but I feel John Nettles shines, especially his reading of the 'Rime of the Ancient Mariner'. Unfortunately this is, in my opinion, the weak point as it gives us all of this epic and I would have been happier with the inclusion of some of the other poems in the book which have been omitted. Or indeed have a longer CD (or download).

I loved both the poems and narrators great performance. However, I'm really disappointed with the format of this audiobook, there's only two chapters. It will be nearly impossible to find a specific poem, unless it has been bookmarked, which should not be necessary. I really wish they could have made each poem as a chapter or maybe at least grouped them by author.
