If you're going to listen to the RLS classic Kidnapped, then hear it read by a Scot who clearly knows and loves the country and the people he's reading about. David Rintoul's well modulated and slightly accented voice does the story proud. Adventure at every turn. Buckle on your claymore laddie, step out into the windswept heather and let David Rintoul narrate this classic tale of gentlemen at arms and rogues a-scheming. #Audible1

One narrator to rule them all

Rob Inglis is the Gandalf of narrators. A wizard of words. Tolkien's masterpiece has never been better interpreted than by the genius of Rob Inglis. Think this is a long listen ? Think again. It simply flew by. In fact too fast, and was over all too soon, when all I wanted was to stay in Middle Earth with Mr. Inglis for a guide and mentor. Incredible. #Audible1.

#Audible1. Listen and attend to me oh best beloved. Geoffrey Palmer's unique and delightful voice and his charming and often hilarious interpretation of the whimsical Just So Stories is out of this world. The book and its narrator are a match made in heaven. Stoke up the fire, make a plate of hot buttered crumpets, put on your headphones and pour Mr. Palmer's gorgeous voice into your ears.

Simply the best

#Audible1. Rob Inglis is quite simply superb. Matchless. Peerless. In narrating the whole Lord of the Rings trilogy he gives a command performance. He reads every word of Tolkien's original, verbatim, as written and unabridged. He does all the voices, speaks in all the languages, sings all the songs - himself. Simply the best. You'll be swept away to Middle Earth by this extraordinary telling of the Return of the King.

Jasper Britton does a fantastic job. Each character has a wonderfully performed voice from first to last. His Long John Silver is a gem. Huzzah for you my man. And shiver me timbers but that was a stirringly read tale and no mistake.
