Review:

Richard Mitchley relishes the glorious rhythms of Masefield's prose, essential to a convincing reading of fantasy. --The Times

These new recordings are, I think, phenomenal. It is all achieved in a virtuoso display and the one actor doing everything enables tight and effective dramatic timing. These recordings will appeal to all and I heartily recommend them. Indeed, listening to The Box of Delights on the train just before Christmas and travelling into work I found myself delighted at delays to my journey. --Masefield Society Journal

These new recordings are, I think, phenomenal. It is all achieved in a virtuoso display and the one actor doing everything enables tight and effective dramatic timing. these recordings will appeal to all and I heartily recommend them. --J M Society Journel
