Little Women, narrated by Sandra Burr

Ms. Burr makes the prose come alive. It is like listening to a radio play. As a listener, you trust in her strong narrative voice and miss it when you put the book down for awhile. The text is a great moral prescription for men and women young and old, but I believe the audio book helped me perceive the moral nuance more clearly. Reading alone, I would sometimes grow distracted by some of the longer philosophical passages, so if that's the case for you, the audio by Sandra Burr is recommended.
