Nights With Uncle Remus


Read by Mark F. Smith

(4.8 stars; 20 reviews)

That the little boy loved Uncle Remus and his stories was so obvious that the tale-spinning sessions began drawing additional listeners. Daddy Jack, an old "Africa man" visiting from down-state; Sis Tempy, the strong chief of the mansion's servants; and Tildy, a young and pretty servant-girl - all found their way to Uncle Remus' rude cabin when their duties or interests permitted, to sit around the hearth and hear the wonderful tales of the animals, and foremost among them, Brer Rabbit and Brer Fox.
It turned out that some of the tales had different ways of telling, and the visitors took their turns at being the story-teller. Always one or more clever animals humbled or hornswoggled others among their community with flattery, wide-eyed mystery, or outright fraud.
After the success of Harris' "Uncle Remus: His Songs and His Sayings" ( http://librivox.org/uncle-remus-by-joel-chandler-harris/ ), he went on to write eight more books compiling the tales he himself had heard on the plantation in his young days. This is the first of those sequels. (12 hr 39 min)

Reviews

I love the reader on these books it's like I was there


(5 stars)

Eh


(3 stars)

I usually enjoy listening to Mark Smith's readings but not this one so much. The accent used for Daddy Jack sounded like a bad Asian accent as opposed to a bad African one and was hard to understand. As for the rest of the characters, with the exception of Uncle Remus they all pretty much sound the same. The stories themselves weren't great but some were a little entertaining. The rabbit is very slick though, quick thinker. Listening to Sons and Lovers next and hoping for better.

Wonderful!


(4.5 stars)

It was very sweet, and I loved every minute of it. However, I had to skip the chapters of stories told by Daddy Jack because he was really hard to understand.

great book
