{Review} The Dragon and the Raven

Does your family love listening to audio books or are interested in beginning an audio theater collection?  The audio theater recording of The Dragon and the Raven by Heirloom Audio Productions will be the perfect addition to your library!  I had the opportunity to review this wonderful audio production courtesy of the Homeschool Review Crew.

 

The Dragon and the Raven {Heirloom Audio Productions Review}

My family is just beginning our audio theater collection and The Dragon and the Raven is a wonderful addition!  We received The Dragon and the Raven on CD, an eStudy Guide, The Dragon and the Raven eBook, behind-the-scenes documentary, printable copy of Proverbs 21:31, The Dragon and the Raven Soundtrack MP3, and a printable cast poster.  We listened to the Dragon and the Raven while driving around town and then listened to it in entirety when we took a trip!  This production is an adaptation of The Dragon and the Raven by G.A. Henty, 2 1/2 hours in length, on 2 cd’s, and is for ages 6 to adult.  I thought it was well done, great sound effects, and has an awesome soundtrack!

There are familiar faces in the cast!  John Rhys-Davies (The Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones), Helen George (Call the Midwife), Brian Blessed (Star Wars, Tarzan, King Lear), Sylvester McCoy (Doctor Who VII, The Hobbit), John Bell (The Hobbit), and Katherine Kellgren (Award-Winning Narrator) lead the very talented cast as they bring the story to life.  The Danes are invading England and only one courageous man is willing to stand up and fight the Danes.  Follow the Dragon and her crew as they learn very important lessons during this trying time in their lives.

The eStudy guide that is included is a wonderful addition!  If you choose to print the study guide I recommend printing the guide in color.  Originally, I printed the guide in black and white and there were sections that were hard to read due to the background used.  Between the cool background and the images used you will be happy that you printed the study guide in color.  I also chose to bind the study guide with my comb binder.

With the study guide you have many questions at your fingertips between the Listening Well, Thinking Further, and Defining Words sections.  I was impressed with the number of questions.  For each set of questions the location on the disc, the track, and the time stamp are provided for reference.  The questions in Listening Well can be answered in a sentence or two.  The questions in Thinking Further the student is expected to explain and defend their answers.  In the Defining Words section there are words to be defined.  There is also a Bible study included in the study guide.  The only thing the study guide doesn’t contain are the answers to the questions.

We enjoyed listening to this audio production and will definitely listen to it again!  I look forward to listening to Heirloom Audio Productions other productions already available and anything that they produce in the future!
