Gorgeous in NOOKbook format!

I had never read The Polar Express before downloading it on my NOOKcolor. It was a little more money than I'll usually spend on a NOOKbook, but I figured since it was such a classic, I'd give it a try. I am SO glad I got it! The "Read to Me" is beautiful. Narrated by Li...
I had never read The Polar Express before downloading it on my NOOKcolor. It was a little more money than I'll usually spend on a NOOKbook, but I figured since it was such a classic, I'd give it a try. I am SO glad I got it! The "Read to Me" is beautiful. Narrated by Liam Neeson, the audio track has voice, music, and even sound effects. My two-year-old sat through almost the whole story the first time we listened to the "Read to Me" together. A wonderful family experience - I highly, highly recommend this book!

WHY?? So Much?

Everyone knows this is a good story, but why the high cost? Might as well buy the book which will last a life time vs this reader that will eventually be an out dated device. *gave low star rating due to price*

    Don't buy for the "read to me" feature... or do

    This ebook is fine. It's a short children's book of about 15 pages; Why, why, why can't B&N include the # of pages in the ebook description. That said, it seems high priced for what you get, ebooks should be cheaper than physical.

    Again the book is fine, illustrations are ok too, however the "read to me" feature in this book is excruciatingly slow! Ah.... I want to choke the reader! Then if your kids happen to touch the screen while your waiting for the guy to finish the page, you have to go back or forward and start all over again. I'd highly recommend you watch the movie over listening to this books "read to me" feature, you'd finish about the same time. Ok that's a slight exaggeration, but it is bad.

    okay

    I've seen the movie and read the book. And I loved them but personally I think the book here is a little expensive. Maybe I would pay like $2 or $3 for it but nothing over that.

    Good

    Always this on the shelve when I was younger, at my school. Barely remember this one but faintly remember the movie. The cover I remember most. Same with Jumanji.

    Narni-Out

    I believe that the Polar Express is a children's Christmas classic. What do care about more, paying for a book that costs $18.95, or putting a smile on a kid's face?
