This quintessentially English novel is considered by many to be a masterpiece of storytelling. Set for the most part on a riverbank in rural England, against a backdrop of social, agricultural, and industrial change typical of the early 20th century, Kenneth Grahame's portrayal of the anthropomorphic characters (which include Mole, Ratty, Badger, Otter, and, of course, the incorrigible Mr. Toad) is imaginative, lyrical, and without doubt uniquely humorous. Above all, in this work, the writer strikes a deep and resonant chord of human emotions. There are other audio versions of The Wind in the Willows; however, this rendering brings a fresh, clear, and enthusiastic narration inspired by a lifelong affection for the book.

“I was provided this free review copy audiobook by the author or narrator." This review is for the audio copy of The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame and narrated by Chris MacDonnell.
I had always known about the Disney version of Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride but had never read The Wind in the Willows. This was an entertaining tale and was read superbly by Chris MacDonnell. His inflections, accents and pacing helped tell the story in a manner that made it easy to listen to and hard to put down.
