Delightful reading in beautiful English!

(5 stars)

A thousand thanks to you, Kare Savage, for making the book and all it's characters coming to life! This is a wonderful little book read by an excellent reader. It is probably a children's book, but works very well for grown ups as well.

Superb reading

(5 stars)

The book is a classic: Mary is a spoiled, sickly girl that learns to come out of her shell by taking care of an abandoned garden with her friends. The audio is superb, you can feel the smile in Karen's voice as she reads, giving life to the pages

Wow! Just wow!

(5 stars)

Karen Savage made this book spring to life just as Dickon's Magic made The Garden come alive. Being English, I was certain I was listening to a native born lass and was stunned to Google her and discover that she's a Texan: of all things. Her grasp of accent and inflection is remarkable. I'm 48 and felt like a little boy listening to a mother telling a magical tale straight from the land o' the fairies! Too bad the Librivox app doesn't permit a 6 star rating because I believe she'd have a raft of them. I feel envious of any children she may have: my own mother never once reading me a story. Wondering if this was a one-off I've begun listening to Anne of Green Gables and am delighted to hear a perfect East Canadian accent. She has a sweet and beautiful singing voice as well! I cannot recommend her highly enough!! Really a sweet and innocent telling of a great children's classic: truly timeless in the retelling. Thanks Karen!

The Secret Garden - Version 2

(5 stars)

Karen Savage is a beautiful reader!! The Secret Garden has always been a favorite of mine and I've reread it many times. The voice in my head does little justice to the book. I loved this version and will revisit it again soon.

(5 stars)

Kate Savage is brilliant at bringing the beloved story to life!!! Her details for each character is GENIUS! Especially Dickon!!! Love his vocal mannerisms. Mary's change from start to finish is incredible in the writing as well as performance by Ms. Savage. Such a treat to hear this read soooo beautifully! Thank you!

(5 stars)

The reader of the wonderful wonderful story that is supposed to be for children but in reality it's for all of us did a tremendous amount job in acting each of the parts she must have loved the story and she certainly will make anyone who listens to it love it too

A very good story

(4.5 stars)

I had never before read The Secret Garden, although I knew the gist of the plot line. It is a good story and very well read; easy to understand why it is a beloved classic.

Awesome recording!!!!

(5 stars)

This recording was AWESOME!!!! I don't personally love the book but the recording was great. I had to read this book for school, I wasn't very excited about it, and my teacher said that we could listen to it and this recording made it much easier and enjoyable!!!!! Great job Karen Savage!!!
