The Wizard Of Oz

(5 stars)

Having read all the Oz books as a child, I was greatly looking forward to this audiobook, & I was not disappointed. All of the characterizations were spot on. It was great fun traveling down the yellow brick road in this reading, and I look forward to hearing more of the oz books which I hope continues to utilize the talents of these same people.

awesome book reading

I'm a fan of librivox & I'm glad that I have explored it further on my phone. The book is lovely. The storyline is also very intriguing. I firstly didn't like the voice of lion, but only to find it the most enjoyable after continuous listening. The lions voice was little louder than others. But overall a wonderful performance by all the readers for a wonderful book. Dorothy voice "I love it".

I love the American voices. The first time I listened to a librivox reading of the wizard of hours it was just read out. I loved that but this one with the character voices is even better. Thanks volunteers.

it was the first book I listened to on this app while falling asleep. I was sadly disappointed and distracted with the way the book was read. I am a big wizard of oz fan and I couldn't bring myself to get past chapter 3 after two nights of trying...

Ok...

Let me just say that I LOVE this story! However I was disappointed with this Dramatic Reading of this irreplaceable classic. I know that they are all volunteers, but I have listened to others that a much better cast. And as I am a volunteer, I have also participated in some that have much better casts. I really wanted to like this book. 😢

Great book and read out very well. Made it difficult to fall asleep when the voices were louder then the person reading the story. Sometimes startling once i was nearly asleep. Otherwise great to listen to.

I enjoyed this a lot! Most of the voices were great, and I especially loved the Scarecrow. However, some of the characters were very loud (especially the Lion) and some were very quiet, so that at a few points I had to adjust my volume up and down as I was listening. Otherwise this was a great recording!
