Story telling at its finest. Simply acted without overblown characterization. This is the second I've listened to and both were wonderfully read. Oh yeah, it was Huck Finn.


This was really well done; I usually fall asleep when listening to audio books, but this one kept me up! Put more out here! Just stay over enthusiastic and I am set!

Heart of Darkness

Oh, the horror, the horror, of trying to read this by yourself! We are reading this for English this year, and it's an absolute nightmare if you don't want to stay up all night trying to keep focused on your reading. This podcast has helped me out a lot. It's very exciting when it's read out loud, and it really helped me to grasp a better meaning of the book so that I scored higher on essays about it than I probably normally would have. So, this is great if you are reading this for entertainment and for schoolwork, and it really is a lot more exciting when it's read out loud than it seems when it's written on paper. Great job, and thank you so much!
