Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Simon Vance

Philosophy & Religion • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1983

With his delicious British accent, Simon Vance is the perfect choice for this beguiling gem. His crisp diction offers clarity while maintaining a warmth that invites the listener to settle back and enjoy another—albeit grown-up—adventure with friends from A.A. Milne's Hundred Acre Wood. But don't dismiss this as a children's story. Hoff's text is ingenious as he uses these childhood icons and their tales to present Tao's message of simplicity, tolerance, and peace. With his unerring sense of pacing, Vance delivers instructive passages in a conversational tone, then seamlessly becomes Pooh, Eeyore, Owl, and Rabbit. Hoff and Vance have created an audio classic, offering a unique and delightful experience that gently instructs as it entertains. M.O.B.
