    Kim's life takes a curious twist when he meets a holy man, a lama, who is about to embark on a mysterious quest: a pilgrimage that will take him across the vast continent, across rivers and up the Himalayas. And he wants Kim to accompany him.

    Would you listen to Kim again? Why?

    I would listen to Kim again-I like the story and have read it several times - also the narrator is absolutely superb in capturing the accents and cadences of all characters.


    What does Sam Dastor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Perfect voicing of all characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but I haven't got that big a swath of time - so listening in chapters is just great.

  • Dodger

    Story
    (666)

    A storm. Rain-lashed city streets. A flash of lightning. A scruffy lad sees a girl leap desperately from a horse-drawn carriage in a vain attempt to escape her captors. Can the lad stand by and let her be caught again? Of course not, because he's...Dodger. Seventeen-year-old Dodger may be a street urchin, but he gleans a living from London's sewers, and he knows a jewel when he sees one. He's not about to let anything happen to the unknown girl - not even if her fate impacts the most powerful people in England.

    Snoodely says: "Finally Revealed: Where Dickens Got His Ideas!"
    "Pratchett and Mr Dickens tell a tale"

    Story
    Would you listen to Dodger again? Why?

    Yes. It's well told and gives a good glimpse of London of the Dickens era


    What other book might you compare Dodger to and why?

    Charles Dickens work - Dodger uses Mr. Dickens character and is in the same time frame


    What does Stephen Briggs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's always a wonderful reader.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, except one must stop to eat and work and walk the dog.


    Any additional comments?

    I would make a present of it to some friends.
