I have been an Anne McCaffrey fan for many years and have read and re-read her books, including the Harper Hall trilogy, many times. I purchased this as a way to read an old friend while driving on a long trip. I wasn't disappointed, the story is well read and brings the characters to life.
My one caveat is the pronounciation of some of the characters names. Although the names may be being pronounced exactly as the author intended, they differ so much from how I had always said them that I find myself going "who?" when each character is mentioned for the first time. This distraction is the only drawback.
If this is your first time reading this book, this will not be a problem for you.
Well, not really, but still very entertaining. Before listening I had only been familiar with the abridged story line in the movie -- Anne Hathaway does a marvelous job doing all the voices in this reading of L.Frank Baum's classic story.
