I enjoyed reading, err - listing to this book. fast paced and do much better than the movie!
Production decision to augment voice with schmaltzy movie music showed a lack of faith in the strength of the story and the storyteller. A sad decision.
This book and series is wonderful. I have listened to this book with my daughter who was 10 at the time. We both enjoyed it. This is one of those book series that is interesting for a child but also has so much meaning and depth for the adult listener.
- Not my favorite reader voice, but it was fine.
- Like another reviewer said... music was distracting. It didn't add anything to the story- it would start and end at seemingly random times. It stuck out.
