I would certainly recommend this book, to any story loving person (be they child or grown-up). The story is compelling, the overall performance is delightful. The narrator (old man's voice) sometimes slurs a little (in words like 'ages'), the children's voices are clear and their performance is convincing. Very like all Narnia-audibles.
Many hours of hugely enjoyable listening. Story lines are mesmerizing, Gerard Doyle's voice is beguilingly British. Bought all three.
Hilarious parody on gothic novels: Austen takes her characters for a swirl, never once missing a beat, never once losing control, and afterwards sets them down (caringly, laughing with them, not at them) on their sofas. Juliet Stevenson reads it all with panache.
