Delighted

(5 Sterne)

I have tried free audio books online before and been disappointed by the poor quality of reading. Yet, in my search for an audio version of Phantastes I found Brad Powers' recording here. Power's tone and quality of voice embodied the fairy nature of this book. In regards to the book itself, how can one go wrong with one of the books that most impacted C.S. Lewis!

Thank You Brad Powers

I am a huge fan of George MacDonald and Phantastes is one of my favorite works of fantasy. What an absolute delight to listen to the story read by an individual with such a wonderful voice. Thank you Brad Powers for a truly memorable reading.

Beautiful.

Overall it was good, not great. The story tends to be a bit choppy and sometimes slow and/or hard to follow. Some very good lessons and worth a listen. Good job by Brad, but a bit quiet and lacking in expression and definition of sound/voice quality. I could probably benefit from another listen but I don't think I could make it through twice.

Amazing insights and well written

(5 Sterne)

Wonderful inspiring work of art. The way he deals with so many questions we all face is insightful and encouraging. The author has a masterful command of the English language and the uncanny ability to entertain while he instructs. Well read and we appreciate all the efforts at LibriVox!!
