Ah, but Anne just got there after I posted it. Really? I'd love to see Anne get through. It's so, so, so... CANADIAN.
Phooey. I would have voted for Anne and made it a three-way tie, but I missed the deadline.

That's why I've stopped waiting till near the end! Ah, well. I'll still read it, though it would have been good to get other's opinions and thoughts on it in a full discussion.

I plan to listen to the audiobook, especially after astrangerhere said that there is a recent recording by Rachel McAdams. You could start a thread in the Reading Recommendation forum for discussion with others. I would participate in a group read.

Not a bad idea, Bookworm_Girl. Can we get a show of hands here? Just to see if we've got anyone else interested?

I redeemed a credit today at Audible so I’m ready to listen anytime.

How noble not to mention that Anne of GG, your own nomination, only needs one more vote to join the race too . Though actually, I’ve been rooting for Airman as well.
Airman is a good example of a book I’ve never heard of that the book club has exposed me to. I am planning to read this one at sometime in the future too.

Which narrator did you choose? I haven't had a chance to listen to any of them yet, but none were in my list of "favourite" narrators, so I'll need to listen to the samples for a bit to decide which one I want to use a credit on. Though I won't have any credits in the US store until the end of the month, so I'm going to have to wait until then, at least.

I did the Rachel McAdams version that astrangerhere highlighted because I love her as an actress. It may not be the highest quality compared to a professional narrator but I think I’ll enjoy it anyway. If it’s that bad I still have my Bantam Classics boxset of the first three books from when I was a kid. The cover has a photo and blurb featuring the CBC TV production starring Megan Fellows and Colleen Dewhurst. I vaguely recall the miniseries back then. I know I read it because the spines are creased, but I don’t remember these books. I assume that the memories will come back when I reread!

People might have had the Shelley Frasier narration in their Tantor accounts; it was a freebie from them one month.

Oh my, that makes four versions for me, and counting. The Colleen Winton version was a SYNC freebie; the Rachel McAdams version must have been an Audible freebie, because I have that one as well. And the Kate Burton version was an RH freebie.

I plan to read it too. And that’s been my experience too - books I know I wouldn’t have come across otherwise.
