I didn’t read this as a child. Absolutely one of my favourite books now. So well written and an intriguing piece of classical literature.
Excellent Story & Narrator
Fantastic story, brilliantly read.
Really needed an edit
The narrator reads well but there are slips which should have been redone and the constant fumbling over page turns is irritating. It’s a bit slapdash for something being sold.
