My family listened to this on a long road-trip and we were rapt. The performance was strong and the story was gripping. The story does turn quite dark at times, and some of the details were very intense for our nine-year-old, but nothing he couldn't ultimately handle. I recommend this audiobook highly.
My only complaint, and it is a mild one, is that the ending is a bit sudden. But that is not a reason to avoid a book that is 99% beautiful...and important for children.
