On the road a bit these days, I’m all ears for audiobooks. I took a break from the endless sea adventures of Patrick O’Brian for a visit with one of my heroes, E. B. White.
E. B. White reads Charlotte’s Web as if he’s sitting across the room, right there, even though this recording was made decades ago.
Even if you think you know this story by heart, it’s something to hear it as the author himself reads it. It clocks in at under four hours, equal parts funny, tender, and heartbreaking. There is no audiobook more brilliant than this one.
