Reviews

Excellent book, piecemeal recording

(3.5 stars)

I really enjoyed the Lvx recording of the first jungle book. Kipling is a very compelling writer! The second story is even more compelling with an honest imagination of what human behavior would look like to an intelligent raised totally outside of our cultural norms. The recording is piecemeal, but definitely passable. I give it an overall B- rating. Thank you so much to all the volunteer readers! I very much enjoyed the listen :)

bad and good

(3 stars)

I only gave 3 stars because you should only have one reader and I can't understand the some of the readers. but I have to say thanks to all of the readers that have volunteered to read all these books. just to tell you I love to listen to these books so please keep publishing books

Less than the first, but not last

(3 stars)

I found this story to be, not quite as good as the first book, but still worth a listen. The recording is of adequate quality.

a very enjoyable book

(5 stars)

the book is well and poetically written with a pome or song to accompany each chapter but is not to tame in any sense.

(3 stars)

The story about the Inuit and the story or Mowgli and his adopted mom are good, but the rest are just ok.

Thank you!

(4.5 stars)

Some of the readers were hard for me to understand, but I'm very thankful for them volunteering.

Not as good as the first one!

(4.5 stars)

good but not great!

(3 stars)

I think I still like the first one better
