Fables of Aesop and Others

Gelesen von LibriVox Volunteers

(4,3 Sterne; 5 Bewertungen)

The origins of these fables are perhaps lost in obscurity, but they are so closely identified with the Greek writer Aesop, that we may regard them as such. Most of these tales involve interactions among animals, and to each is appended a moral. This edition was edited and illustrated by Thomas Bewick a well-known British engraver and illustrator. The book begins with an excellent introduction - Larry Wilson (8 hr 45 min)

♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

♡I LOVE AESOP FABLES♡ But this app NEEDS to have Naruto, so then this app is more interesting. Like this, so then the creator can add Naruto. Unless this app is about kiddie things. ._. :(

good

(4 Sterne)

I literally am only writing this review because somebody wants LibriVox to add “Naruto.” First of all, that clearly wouldn’t work, comic books do not translate into listenable recordings well at all, as they rely on pictures. Plus, LibriVox can only use books that are in the Public Domain. Basically, only older books whose “copywrite” has expired. So… yeah. No Naruto. Sorry, man.

would have liked consistent audio volume.

(2,5 Sterne)

the difference between audio quality of the readers is jarring. would prefer a single reader like Phil Chevenvare
