Great reader

(5 stars)

One of my children read this for a project and got honors at a state competition for his reading. I have loved this poem ever since I first read it as a child. This gentleman's reading of it is excellent. Thanks.

who is stupid?

Let's not go on about each other's comments---let's all just keep reading and listening. Oh, by the way, "were" is not the correct spelling---you should have typed "we're" or "we are". Time to listen to another book.

Great Accent

(5 stars)

This "Yank" really enjoyed hearing this classic in its "original English!" Or at least close to a British accent.... Are you from Australia? Anyway, I really love this poem, and it is complemented beautifully by your reading.

Nice pronunciation. Congrats! I would try to improve the acting, i.e., whispering Leonore instead of just uttering it. I do thank you for your time.

Reader has a Good Voice

(5 stars)

It can be hard to find a reader who does not over act. This reader is natural and carries the words as I imagine they were meant to be read and said.

I love this story, and im happy these are free but and im not trying to be mean someone with a lisp distracts from it.

The Raven

Great poem and great reading. The accent was almost comical though. If Christopher Lee read this I'd believe I was in the room.

Play nice children

I haven't (and/or have not) listened to this rendition yet; however, I give ☆☆☆ to the high school students posting comments. I am (and/or I'm) sure your English teacher is proud of you.
