    I m not normally a fan of audio dramatisations, but as this was an Audible freebie, I thought I d give it a go It was superbly narrated and acted, without being over the top or feeling as if you needed a visual aspect to it as well I thoroughly enjoyed this and would recommend it for a short listen and for those who want a bitto their Jungle Book knowledge aside from the Disney version.

    I thought this was a fantastic full cast rendition of stories from Mowgli s life with amazing nature sounds and believable voice acting I really felt as though I was listening to a west end production The stories are engaging, in chronological order and present the complete cast of characters from the original story They mostly detail Mowgli, his adjustment to the wolf pack and later into human territory, but they also show the gradual aging of beloved characters and the family dynamic and fr I thought this was a fantastic full cast rendition of stories from Mowgli s life with amazing nature sounds and believable voice acting I really felt as though I was listening to a west end production The stories are engaging, in chronological order and present the complete cast of characters from the original story They mostly detail Mowgli, his adjustment to the wolf pack and later into human territory, but they also show the gradual aging of beloved characters and the family dynamic and friendship between them In all honesty, it s equal parts heart warming and sad I had my doubts about Audiobooks, but the full cast and a cast of big names, really makes this collection of 20 minute stories really worth listening to I can imagine children would adore it

    The audio production of this is very good I lately have been complaining about productions but not this time.In addition I have never read the stories themselves I have only seen the Disney movies and I was pleasantly surprised by the richness of the story I had assumed they would be somehow less Even so though there was a thread in the writing that bothered me when comparing the animals to Mowgli and then it dawned on me.My problem being is how Rudyard Kipling himself and his writings are i The audio production of this is very good I lately have been complaining about productions but not this time.In addition I have never read the stories themselves I have only seen the Disney movies and I was pleasantly surprised by the richness of the story I had assumed they would be somehow less Even so though there was a thread in the writing that bothered me when comparing the animals to Mowgli and then it dawned on me.My problem being is how Rudyard Kipling himself and his writings are inexorably interconnected with racism and the superiority of the white man Reading just the Mowgli stories reduces my exposure to the other portions of the Jungle Book, but I have read parts of the other stories such as White Man s Burden.I realize some people say to separate the artist from the art, or that some of the art can be salvageable and I don t think I can do that with this story I will give it 2 stars, but that is because of my connection with Disney
