Publisher's Summary

A wonderful, highly-acclaimed dramatic performance of Kenneth Grahame's classic novel. Many of the original cast from Alan Bennett's acclaimed National Theatre production appear in this special dramatisation for BBC Radio 4, including Richard Briers as Rat, Adrian Scarborough as Mole, and Terence Rigby as Albert.
When Mole goes boating with the Water Rat instead of spring-cleaning, he discovers a new world. As well as the river and the Wild Wood, there is Toad's craze for fast travel and motor-cars that leads them all on a timeless adventure.

Wonderful narration, not the full text though...

Being a fan of Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame, I was pleased to find this reading my Derek Jacobi! He does a lovely job of narrating and capturing the various character's personalities. I was only saddend to find out (due to not paying attention) that this is not the full text of the book, but a 1hr condenced dramatized version. I would love to hear Jacobi read the full book!

Brilliantly narrated by Sir Derek, a real treat!

Having never been inclined to want to read the book, Sir Derek breathes such life into the characters with his brilliant narrative, I was riveted throughout the whole story. Excellent, I'd recommend for all ages.

Too Abridged

Derek Jacobi is brilliant, naturally, one would not expect anything else. However this is not a long book and there is absolutely no need to abridge it. It is not as if it is dramatised where you might expect it to be adapted by a scriptwriter. So very good but not enough of it. The balance of the story has been so affected the spirit is lost.
