Magical Storytelling

This is truly a children's classic, beautifully narrated with excellent accents and clear speech. It does this classic novel proud, and I'm glad its part of my audio collection.

One small technical note: the person who spliced the chapters together left absolutely no space between the last word of one chapter and the name of the next chapter. So Chapter 1 ends as: "... and the little rustling snakeChapter 2..." How this got through Audible's quality control beats me.

Classic story, good narrator

This is such a wonderful story. I read The Secret Garden over and over as a girl, and still never tire of it. (The same is true of The Little Princess.) I love how real the two children at the heart of the story are, and how their growth as characters is so dramatic but also generally very believable.

Audible has several editions of the Secret Garden, so I listened to samples of all the readers and ended up choosing this one. I'm glad -- the narrator does a very nice job of conveying the spirit of the characters without letting her own interpretation get in the way of the story as written. My only complaint is the same as the previous reviewer's; the editing of this audiobook left no space whatsoever between the end of one chapter and the beginning of the next, and so each time a new chapter begins, it is quite jarring.

Great book

Recommend this book to both adults and children alike. Inspirational and well written.

My only criticism is that the chapter starts begin immediately after the chapter ends with not even a breath in between, and this happens too between various other clips of recordings. This takes away from the listener's experience a little. Pauses are important.

Lovely story

The narrator is good. The story is poorly edited in that there is no pause between paragraphs and chapters.
