Reviews

Another tour de force by Karen

(5 stars)

Karen's sweet, girlish and wonderfully expressive voice has made for another well-read book with all the characters speaking in their own unique tones that let's one know who is speaking without the oft-redundant "he said's" and "she said's" as nessescitated by other writers and lessor readers. I feel certain that Karen would make an excellent voice actress: she is already a first-rate amateur and would do equally well in a paid role. Karen dear, you really would do well to write one or two children's books and narrate them, I'm certain you do an outstanding job I love the way you make Davy sound mischievous, contrite and inquisitive all at once. How do you do it? "I want to know!" :-)

Lovely book. Superb reader.

(5 stars)

This book reminds us that a good life is a simple one, where community and nature are important to our well being. We have forgotten these in our modern 'busy' lives. I loved Karen Savage's reading. Thank you so much for many hours of pure pleasure Karen.

we are hopman kids.

Lovely

(5 stars)

This is my first time going through the Anne series (at age 33), and the tales are delightful! Montgomery has a gift for developing her characters, making them believable and familiar, and the delivery by Karen Savage brings them perfectly to life! I am most struck by the point that Anne, at the ripe old age of 16, is the new "schoolma'am" at Avonlea school. She and her peers display much maturity and sensibility, and it makes me sad that our society is so changed that finding such a young person today would be quite rare. I am resolved that my children ought to follow Anne's pattern rather than the modern one :)

Perfect Narrator

(5 stars)

Karen is fantastic in bringing Anne and all the other characters to life! The book is extremely period, so can become overly wordy and seemingly pointless at times. But the point of all the description and set up is woven wonderfully by the narrator, who gives each person in this sleepy town a distinct voice and unique quality that keeps one's interest and makes you feel like you're part of the little world of Avonlea.

(4.5 stars)

I am an old-ish (57) lady who had never read the Anne books before. They are now among my favorites, especially as read by Karen Savage. LOVE how she reads Davy and Dora. Her reading of Mr. J A Harrison's arrival in "An irate neighbor" always makes me laugh. Thanks for making these books available, and keep up the good work Ms Savage

Great reader and still a good story

(5 stars)

Karen Savage does a splendid job reading again. I love all the characters she brings to life. It doesn't have quite the magic of the first book, but it's still a great continuation of Anne's life that I wanted to see. I will be listening to the next one

Clear & Expressive

(4 stars)

But the reading pace is extremely fast & takes some getting used to. Still this version is SO much better than the one read by various volunteers. I found hearing alllll the information over again before each chapter aggravating. Who cares when it was recorded. We know the title of the book!
