Jim Hodges Audio Books Makes History Come Alive with Henty books and more…..
When we first began listening to our new audio book, True to the Old Flag, we were captivated as we heard Mr. Hodges change his voice in so many ways. Whatever character he was reading about, he would become. Voice inflections, accents and all! We knew that we would NOT get bored! He has a way of making the story so interesting & the listener feels as if he or she is right there with the characters of the book. My son is always asking if we can listen to one more chapter, when it’s time for our listening session to end.
One of my hesitations to picking up a Henty book was because of the “old English”. Well, Jim Hodges Audio books has helped me out with that one, too! They have vocabulary guides to go with many of the Henty books that are available on their site. When we don’t know what a word means, we look it up in the vocab guide. Talk about a time saver!

What others are saying . . .
“What do you get when you cross a spellbinding story with an eloquent storyteller? You get Jim Hodges reading aloud a G. A. Henty book! We had to drive 6 hours this weekend and our family was enthralled! Mr. Hodges reads with a fluent style that charmed us all, from Drew (7 years) to Daddy (40 years).”

“Whether you are out on a walk, riding in the car, or just sitting by the fire, you will be able to bring these G. A. Henty classics with you wherever you go. Jim Hodges has brought to life these Henty novels in unabridged, dramatic readings. The tapes are high-quality and well recorded with strong, clear reading – perfect for recapturing that “lost” time in the car.”
