Deb enjoyed listening to The King's Speech

Simon Vance, a three-time Audie Winner and narrator of over four hundred audiobooks, is in top form in this reading of The King's Speech by Mark Logue and Peter Conradi. Penned by the grandson of Lionel Logue, King George VI's famous speech therapist, the story is both a personal memoir of sorts (Logue died before his grandson was born) and a concise bit of early to mid twentieth century history. Based in part upon Logue's newly discovered diaries, Mark Logue tells the remarkable story of the rare friendship which developed between his grandfather, a commoner from Australia, and the future monarch which lasted until the King's death in 1953.

    I loved listening to Jim Dale's voice in the Harry Potter books.
