Having been cautious about buying this book, I am so glad that I did. The story itself is so engaging that I really didn't want it to end. Far better to let your imagination create the subtleties and redraw the backdrops. If you clear your mind of any films you may have seen and simply imerse yourself in the narration it won't disapoint.

What a marvellous find! I have very much enjoyed this audiobook and enthusistically recommend it. This classical tale of adventure and mystery is read really well by John Richmond. It was pure joy to listen to the story unfold. All the characters came to life and the time flew by. Brilliant!
