Book Readers Review
Read the book, Seen the movie, and now one of the best experiences, listened to Alison Larkin narrate the story.  I think ‘narrate’ does not give full justice to Alison’s rendition of this classic.  Performance would be more suited.  Alison Larkin has the amazing ability to produce many different voices that create incredible pictures for every character.  Larkin truly brings all the players to life with her production of such diverse accents.  Do not miss listening to this best seller for over 150 years performed by this brilliant lady.
