"Delightful" from a movie devotee

I was a devotee of the PBS Anne movies but had never got around to reading the actual books. These books are (of course) full of stories the movie left out and every one is just as delightful. I listen to A LOT of audiobooks so have heard MANY readers and I must say that Barbara Caruso is a fabulous reader. Since I've had the movie characters (voices and all) burt into my mind since childhood, I was pleasantly suprised to hear their voices coming through Barbara! Barbara's Anne character sounded a bit different from Megan's voice (the movie Anne), but her Anne sounded just young, lively and passionate as ever. The sound quality was great and although I wish the price were lower, I am glad I bought all the available Anne books with Barbara as the narrator.

Excellent narrator

Barbara Caruso does an excellent job narrating without sounding like a squeaky little girl. Her reading enhanced the story for me and allowed me to picture the different characters easily. I’m glad I selected this version instead of some of the newer and more expensive productions.
