Fireside Reading of Winnie-the-Pooh
by A.A. Milne
narrated by Gildart Jackson
My rating (for this version): 4.5 / 5
Genre: Children’s classic
My rating is specific to the audiobook version releasing from Dreamscape Media on February 22, 2022. The story itself was wonderful, and the narrator did an overall great job. Though I had to listen closely to hear the sound of the fire crackling, I liked that now and then, I could hear pages turning. It felt more like actually being there, listening to him read. I appreciated the conversational style he employed, and I’ve always loved Gildart Jackson’s voice, so that made it all the more fun. I’ll admit that I didn’t care for the way he voiced Owl, but overall, it was a lot of fun to listen to.
Having never read the full book that started everything Winnie-the-Pooh before this year, I’ve now listened to it twice, by 2 different narrators, both audiobooks released by the same publishing company in less than 3 months. I grew up watching a lot of Winnie-the-Pooh, so it’s been fun to reminisce. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go find more Gildart Jackson to listen to.
Thank you to Netgalley and Dreamscape Media for providing me a copy of this audiobook to review.
