This is a wonderful book of hope. I believe it has spiritual meaning of new birth and regeneration and the goodness of others if we look for it. The narrator, Karen Savage, really brings the story and characters to life. I now plan on seeing the movie.

Absolutely top notch professional reading. A surprisingly complex children's story.

The two versions here of this lovely book are read by A+ readers (Kara Shallenberg & Karen Savage). Books w/one talented reader throughout makes listening a joy! :)

Well, the book itself is great, but the way it was read, it was just awesome! I loved this girl, the way she sang and even bleated, it was very nice of her. Thanks a million!

This is such a great, uplifting, and heart warming novel. I could not stop smiling. Karen Savage was the perfect narrator. Her voice was charming in itself. She did wonderful accents for each character; truly giving them life and their own identity. Well done. Can't wait to start Frances Hodgson Burnett's The Little Princess soon. Karen Savage narrates again.

Loved this story so much! I'm a gardener myself and everytime I heard a chapter I'd find myself feeling the need of going out to work and enjoy my own garden! Wish there were more stories as inspiring and magical as this one.

The reader was wonderful! The reader can make the book or make it not worth listening to. Loved the accent.

Lovely book, horrible APP; I did not get to hear the last chapter. I am now off to the library to finish the book!

This is, of course, a beloved and magical story. Karen Savage has an extraordinary talent for reading - Truly a lovely accomplishment - varying her pitch for different characters and doing the broad Yorkshire accent justice. What a diversion to enjoy while recuperating from a head and chest cold.

Amazing book! Can't believe I have never read it before! Extremely well read, I wish this narrator had recorded all other audio books! Great voice, amazing accents!

One of the most beautiful books I had read to me as a child. Even as an adult I am entranced by this tale. A 5 star read.

I loved and enjoyed listening to this audiobook very much. I can recommend it to everybody. Did at first not know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised.

The book was life-changing and teaching beautiful life lessons in such a desirable and positive way. I listened to this one while sick in bed with pneumonia, and I think it was perfectly what I needed. The reader was incredibly talented. Spoke differently for each character's voice and even switched accents within dialogues. It made me forget that it was only one reader and not an entire dramatization. Excellent job.

It's a good kids story with a great moral! I loved listening to this book, and even though it's a kids book I feel that you don't have to be a kid just to enjoy this book

My 11 yr. old daughter & I thoroughly enjoyed this story from beginning to end. Karen Savage was a perfect choice to read this book. She did a wonderful job, and was a delight to listen to.

The Secret Garden was just as magical and breath-taking as I remembered it from when I read it as a child. The narrator does a superb job of bringing each character to life with different voices and personalities. It pained me to have to pause the story to do my daily tasks. I am so wrapped up in the magic of it all, I plan to listen again and again! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. You will never take the Springtime for granted again.

Could be better because the woman at chapters she should say chapter? Ok I think so get the film and record that and just put chapters
