あらすじ・解説

Penguin presents the unabridged audiobook edition of The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

'I've stolen a garden,' she said very fast. 'It isn't mine. It isn't anybody's. Nobody wants it, nobody cares for it, nobody ever goes into it. Perhaps everything is dead in it already; I don't know.'

After losing her parents, young Mary Lennox is sent from India to live in her uncle's gloomy mansion on the wild English moors. She is lonely and has no one to play with, but one day she learns of a secret garden somewhere in the grounds that no one is allowed to enter. Then Mary uncovers an old key in a flowerbed - and a gust of magic leads her to the hidden door. Slowly she turns the key and enters a world she could never have imagined.

Amazing Reader

I have loved this book since I was young, so I've always been excited for the day when my kids would be old enough to enjoy it for themselves. While we do our own read alouds, we've been enjoying audiobooks more and more - and I've learned that the reader/narrator can make or break a story! THIS READER IS AMAZING! Her voices, the various accents, the emotions expressed... it brought this great story to life and my kids absolutely adored it. So did I! I highly recommend this version!

Fantastic Reader!

This narrator nailed the Yorkshire accent, paused at just the right moments, and did a beautiful job of capturing the personalities of each character. My daughter needed to read the book for an assignment over Christmas break, and listening to it felt like a treat. I highly recommend this performance.

Lush, sublime narration

I can’t attest to quality of the accents, but I enjoyed every bit of this emotionally rich and varied narration. Ms Varma’s eloquent and attractive telling makes it automatically one of my all-time favorites. She sings the little songs and consistently manages many characters with expert ease. I’m awed. And grateful- I feel I got a full experience.

Lovely

Listened with my 5 year old daughter before letting her watch the 1993 movie. It was perfect. The accents were stylized enough to give the idea, but clear enough even she could understand the broad Yorkshire.

What a gem!

It’s getting hard to find an audiobook that hasn’t drowned out the words by trying to add all sorts of background noise or that has been overly dramatized. Indira Varma did a wonderful job and I will look for her in other titles. I couldn’t press pause on this little gem.

Anyone suffering from quarantine blues or depression I general would greatly benefit from this tale.

It was written at the height of English imperialism so needless to say there is racism and classism. However, it’s a good way to look our history square in the face to see how far we have left to go in our fight against racism.

Brimming with hope and healing.

Forget the remake of the movie.
This is a book that would be well read after dinner when all are ready for bed Or anytime. I like books when I listen to the Audio. It warmed my heart.

Returning to my childhood

Listening to The Secret Garden was a step back in time. There is so much wisdom and truth in this gentle story which as an adult, reached into my heart and touched my soul. To listen to this story again with the delightful narration of Indira Varma, provided soothing respite from the anxiety of today’s world. Even if you read this as a child, let yourself listen to it now as an adult. You will fall in love with this tender story once again.

This is such a great, classic story!

The story is just as wonderful as I remember when my mom read it to me as a child. I got so much more out of it though listening to it now, as an adult. I highly recommend it for children and grown ups alike. The story is so well crafted and delivers a great message. The narrator was simply brilliant as well and I'll miss hearing her voice.

Beautiful performance of classic novel, though may be disturbing for young children

I chose this book because I was reminded of having watched it in a series and a film as a child (on video), and was interested to hear the book this came from.
The book is both timeless and very much set in its time.
The narrator, Indira Varma, is really wonderful, and moves between voices and accents in a really seamless way, bringing each character to life.
The first parts of the book do involve attitudes and treatment and towards some of the characters, Mary in particular, may be disturbing to some, and it should perhaps be listened to/read before children are given access to it. I suspect there may be abridged/edited versions of The Secret Garden to adjust in this respect.

Simply womderful

As an avid reader I have read this book several times in different languages. The story has always spellbound me, but having heard this reading I'm awestruck. Varma reads with such clear and soft pronunciation that it is just lovely to listen. Every character has its own defined voice, the different dialects are perfectly read - at the same time almost alien (to a non native English speaker), and fully understandable. I just loved it. Will look for more books read by this actor.

Wonderful narration of a childhood favourite

I always though that A Little Princess was my favourite children’s book by Frances Hodgson Burnett but on a reread of this I think it may have overtaken it! The narrator does a wonderful job of bringing all of the characters to life -her Yorkshire accent was good and full of humour and her performance of Mary Lennox from indignant to warm and loving was wonderful. The garden felt real, fresh and full of life and I felt revived after spending time there. I have always loved the way FHB writes nature and particularly animals - they are always so characterful and charming and are what makes her writing so special and magical to me. A good audio production of a classic children’s tale. Much loved and well worth a listen.

Perfect

Wonderfully narrated at just the right pace, she nails every voice and accent so that you can be carried away to the place and time and become immersed in the beauty of the story. This book is a classic celebration of nature and love and the power of belief. A must listen for children and adults. You’ll want to listen again and again.

An Enchanting Story Read Wonderfully

Indira Varma imbues this enchanting story with the life and light of her own creative energy. She gives such an outstanding performance of all the different characters, where she brilliantly captures all the emotions, and particularly the uplifting ones. I’m so glad I selected Varma’s reading of this wonderful story. 11/10

Absolutely deserves 5 stars. It’s a wonderful story, with a wonderful message. I can’t wait to read it to my own children some day- or listen with them!
