Christopher Lee reads The Raven

Naught thrills me near so much as how much my children enjoy this.

That was cool. Christopher Lee demonstrates how poetry should be read. If English teachers would start poetry units with this type of reading, our literacy rates would probably be higher.

Heck yeah, my kids are 6, 5 and 3 and they love this.

There's a recording of Christopher Walken reading it, which is also quite good.

Incredible voice for it.

Thanks Jon - I listened to that one and James Earl Jones afterward...well, not directly afterward I gave it a break, having lunch between them, didn't want to spoil a good thing.

Charles-YES he does, I listened to Tolkien's: The Children of Hurin with Christopher Lee narrating-gave it a very good tone.
