Love Karen Savage!

(5 stars)

I consider Karen Savage to be one of the best audio book readers. There were such good reviews for version 1, that I thought I would give another reader a try, but I quickly switched to version 2, and am so grateful for Karen Savages readings here on librivox. Version 1 was still good, but this version is excellent!

I love Karen Savage’s voice and Frances Hodgson Burnett’s stories are wonderful when I am sick and am trying to soothe myself. I think I am sick with the flu, and I listened to the entire book today when I wasn’t sleeping. It made me feel so much better. Ms. Savage’s voice lessened my aches and pains just like the voice of my mother reading to me. Thank you.

A Librivox Favorite!

(5 stars)

The story is a beautiful one that keeps you wanting to listen to know what will happen next. The reading is beautifully done by Karen Savage. The combination of story and reader has made this my favorite listen on LibriVox!

Great Book!!

(5 stars)

Great book, I love it!! I always used to listen to it when I was a kid and I still do!! I'm now 8 and I've listened to it since I was 5?? All I ask for is a part two, I want to see how it will turn out, sadly, Frances Hogson Burnet has probably not made a part two since it was made I'm 1888, anyway, I still think this is a great book, keep up the good work!!

A Must Listen

(5 stars)

Karen Savage is by far the best reader this book didn’t interest me until I heard her read it.

This story calls to you to be better!

"I've noticed this. What you have to do with your mind, when your body is miserable, is to make it think of something else." So says Sara in the depths of proverty, hunger and misery. We learn that you can be neither good nor happy without gratitude in what you will yourself to think. When people treat you badly, that disgrace is on them. When you react well, that glory is on you! Another superb reading by the incomparable Karen Savage!

(4 stars)

Karen Savage reads so beautifully it is a joy to listen to her. When compared to The Secret Garden, this story comes a poor second and yet it still had some of The Secret Garden’s magic and charm. Mary Lennox is a far more believable character than Sarah Crewe who seems a little too good to be true. Karen Savage rendered this story, not without its shortcomings, into a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
