Enjoying Immensely 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
“Anne of Green Gables is a delight to listen to. I find I’m laughing out loud. The return to simpler and slower times is a comfort too during the pandemic. I have listened to Jane Eyre and A Christmas Carol as well. Ms Lightstone does a great job with the voices. Having read children’s books to my group at church I know how difficult that can be, especially to use the same voice consistently for a character. Thank you.”

Anne of Green Gables 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
“This reading is truly delightful, thank you Marilyn for bringing this book alive. I’ve watched a couple of the TV series but never read the book, so this is my luxurious time of igniting my imagination. My granddaughter is excited about listening with me during her April school break. Also loved Jane Eyre.”

A great classic 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
“Thank you Marilyn Lightstone, awesome job!”

Anne of Green Gables 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
“It’s wonderful. When our three daughters were young, I would sit in the hallway and read to them when they were in their beds. Of course we read this series. What a delight to have it being read to me. Thank you Marilyn. And I loved A Christmas Carol.”

Marilyn Lightstone Reads Jane Eyre 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
“What a delight to discover that Marilyn Lightstone is reading the classics in podcasts! I just finished listening to Jane Eyre. I must have skipped through chapters in high school; much of it was unfamiliar! But Miss Lightstone has the most wonderful voice, and I could picture her as she read it. I was anxious to listen as often and long as I could each day. Fortunately I found this after all episodes were already available. I loved Marilyn Lightstone as Miss Stacy in Anne of Green Gables, and will listen next to the new podcast episodes of it, though I am waiting for several to be available to shorten my wait time between episodes. I have recommended this to my grown daughters; I read Anne of Green Gables to them when they were children, we watched the series on TV and we all loved Miss Stacy. I hope she will read many more classics in future podcasts; I love listening to her. She clearly distinguishes one voice from another and provides just the right amount of drama. What a great choice was made when she was selected to read!”
