I knew Alan Rickman would make a good reader.
If you could sum up The Ring of the King in three words, what would they be?
I love the idea of becoming aquainted with African folk tales, but I wasn't sure I'd love a whole book's worth, so I am glad I could pick up the stories individually (IF you are certain you will love them then you should buy the book as a whole and save money). This was one of the first tales I bought because I was confident that Alan Rickman would make a great narrator. Boy was I right!! Well, it is a no brainer really.
What did you like best about this story?
It has a nice moral twist
Which scene was your favorite?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, and I did. Many times.
Any additional comments?
I would now probably listen to just about anything read by Rickman.

A wonderful quick story for adults and children
Would you listen to The Ring of the King again? Why?
I would and have listened to the recording. It is very enjoyable and a quick diversion during a hectic day.
What other book might you compare The Ring of the King to and why?
I could compare it to any folktale type of book.
Which character – as performed by Alan Rickman – was your favorite?
I am a HUGE fan of Alan Rickman, and I love the way that he narrates books. This story is read well, the different characters have different voices, but they don't sound silly, and I think it's the story itself that really appeals to me, although I have to admit, I bought it first because Mr. Rickman was narrating it.
Any additional comments?
Well worth the buy.
