Mean?

The narrator was good. But I didn’t like Marry Poppins character. She came across quite mean, and this put me off the story completely.

Oh Olivia

An otherwise great reading from
the fantastic Olivia Coleman spoilt by the worst voicing of a little boy in the history of voice overs. Michael sounds like a nasty little munchkin with strep throat and his dialogue is so clipped he comes across more as a Twin Peaks character than a small boy. Not sure what she was thinking but so bizarre as to distract from the story. Sample before buying.

Listened and relistened!

Absolutely brilliant. Made so by Olivia Coleman and her many voices. A treasure to enjoy.

Better than the movie.

I can see why P. L. Travers did not like the movie. I feel there were probably about five scenes from the book that were included in the movie. I'm happy now I know the 'real' story, as it was intended, without being 'Disney'fied.

Utterly delightful

The book (as so often happens) surpasses the film, with all of Travers’ humour and imagination coming through in entirely unknown sections (my and my children’s particular favourite being the babies chapter talking to the sun and bird).
And Olivia Colman, unsurprisingly, is fantastic, I’ve been recommending it to everyone.

Well read by Olivia classic story

Book different to the movie. It's well worth a listen and with Olivia reading it's very good. It's shorter than I remember it when I read it aged nine. Mary also sounds a lot more serious and grumpy.
