LibriVox 8th Anniversary Collection

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4 stars; 2 reviews)

For the past few years we have celebrated the anniversary of LibriVox with a collection loosely themed on the number of the anniversary year. This year is no exception.

Readers have contributed 88 recordings in Dutch, English, French, German, Japanese, Polish and Yiddish, and this feast of fiction, poetry, essays, articles and musical items ranges from lectures to love letters, science to songs, travel to taxes, and politics to pirates, spiced with a dash of humour.

It has, as always, been enormous fun for the readers and singers, and we hope that you, the listener, will gain just as much enjoyment as we have had producing it. (Introduction by Ruth Golding)

De ce que j'ai entendu

(3.5 stars)

Le dernier enregistrement en est une jolie chanson d'anniversaire! "Eight years in the British Consulate" Huit ans au consulat Britannique (1861-69) à l'air intéressant... Huit ans vécus à Chicago apparemment... Quelques trucs sur Henri VIII aussi...

(4.5 stars)

just give me a book to read
