I have tried reading it before, but I could not get into it. McKellen's narration makes the text come vividly alive.
Too long. Too predictable. The few bright ideas are mercilessly elaborated, crushing this reader's enthusiasm and revealing that the author has nothing to say. Boo!
Having read the books when I was younger, I wanted to revisit them after having enjoyed the tv-series. The plot and characters are still intriguing, but I do find the prose somewhat drab and full of clichés. Still an enjoyable listen, though, especially due to the inventive narration of mr. Dotrice.
