Talk Talk Talk Talk

I did not enjoy this at all. It was mostly talk. The animals loved to have meetings and discuss. I don't know how a kid could enjoy this and the narrator kind of annoyed me. I could see where Disney could make it into something enjoyable, but not the written form.

Really good please consider buying

The narrator was amazing and I was so happy when it included Riki tiki tavi to the rest of the jungle book

HATED IT

What would have made The Jungle Book better?

a better narrator

How could the performance have been better?

I was so distracted by the narration quality that I can't even remember why I once loved it.

Any additional comments?

I read this as a child and loved every bit of it, but this narrator really ruined it for me, especially when he (tried) to sing. One day I may try it again (different narrator) if only to re-establish my original opinion of the book --but not for awhile.

Great narration. The voices were simple

but very consistent. A nicely narrated authentic version of an imaginative story. Lots of folklore and plain language. Stories from this time period are always nice to listen to because the vocabulary is very descriptive and the grammar is wonderful. Love British narrators.

Departing from the Praise

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I can see from the reviews that my opinion is in the minority- so I suppose nearly everyone else.

What was most disappointing about Rudyard Kipling’s story?

I guess the book is outdated for today's young audience. I was looking forward to listening to this with my five year old (maybe it was my fault for not understanding that this book is for a more mature audience- but I don't know how one would know that). Primarily, the book is racist, sexist, and brutal which are not good themes for impressionable children. I'm sure I would love the book if it I was only concerned about myself. Additionally, the performance was really droll- my children would fall asleep right away. We listen to audio books together every night after reading and falling asleep during a book is very unusual for them- they usually hang on every word.

Would you be willing to try another one of Peter Batchelor’s performances?

I don't think so.

Any additional comments?

If you are thinking this is a family book, I would wait until the children are mature enough to understand that the themes in this book are outdated and can just enjoy the literature instead of worrying about the messages it might be conveying.

I love this book

Great for kids and adults

Where does The Jungle Book rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

My kids were hesitant at first, but loved it. And frankly i enjoyed it and didn't want to miss it so made time to listen with it together.

Not The Disney Version

Interesting to listen to, entertaining. From Kipling's original story; not the kid-friendly Walt Disney animated version. Peter Batchelor gives a commendable performance with voice changing and expressive emotion. If you are into the classics, this is worth your time.

a classic familiar in many ways

a classic that has lost much of its freshness and appeal. But because part of this tale has entered pop culture either directly or indirectly, there is an haha sense of discovery when reading this.

Some parts have a special pronunciation

Some parts where a little harder to understand due to the special pronunciation. Specially the elephant story. All others pretty much ideal.
Maybe as a 100% native speaker it won't be a problem at all.
That's why 9/10 on performance.
