Unbelievable. Andy Serkis brought this story to life in the most incredible way. I’m prepared to start a petition asking him to do the rest
This recording is amazing. I have owned the version read by the legendary Rob Iglis for years and love it dearly, but with Andy Serkis reading, it was like I was hearing the story for the first time and was utterly captivated. Well done!!
Absolutely loved the narration of this book! Andy Serkis did an excellent job of voicing all the characters! Such an amazing book!!
