The horror and carnage of world war I is depicted in a way that brings it to a very personal level. The impact on the daily lives of all strata of British life and how they tried to cope with privation and loss is wrenching. Toss this all together with a wicked stepmother,two nasty stepsisters, and a cruelly treated stepchild. Then add magic good and sinister, a handsome young man and you have a whopping good story!
Michelle Ford's wonderful narration brings this story of good and evil and a clash of cultures and their ridged lack of acceptance of strange new ideas.It is a story of overcoming adversity, delightful animal helpers, and staunch old and new friends.Throw in magic, what more could you want. I could barely put it down.
I was shocked at how good the story was! How refreshing to find new people and places,and a new improbable sidekick enter the scene. The narration was beautifully done,and gave the settings and players life and vitality. Loved it.
More perfection in story and narration. I never thought a audio book could add any vivid imagery better than reading the book. The movies were wonderful, but of course they adjusted and fiddled with the story ,places,timeline,and events to suit. This reading never missed a step.
I have read all the books in this series many times, and have seen the movie versions several times.This recording hooked me with it's rich narration,and the story came alive.
Rob Inglis narration of this beautiful series ,with it's richly imagined characters and places ,the poetry, the songs, left me wishing for more. If you have only seen the movies this series is a must read,or in this case even better ,narrated with such skill the story becomes even more vivid.
Actually listened twice! A great insight into what an intelligent alien species might decide about humans. Well narrated. will buy next book in the series, and hope more will come.
narration and characters vivid and story wonderful. have moved on to the fellow ship of the ring.
Having read the print version some years ago,the audio was also most enjoyable.I thought Allyson Johnson did a wonderful job.
A more focused story experience, and hearing the story gives the listener a much different perception and reality than just reading.
