The audio version is better in that you can listen to it and do other things while you're at it too, but I think that's the same of all audiobooks.
It's witty and unassuming and I think it can be enjoyed by story lovers of all ages. You can really feel for the characters in this story.
They voiced all the characters really well. I have nothing to complain about.
This was amazing, and a completely feel good read.
I would highly recommend this story/book/audiobook to anyone.
The narration and the story were both excellent.
The protagonists, the style, the fact that it makes you think.
He captures the tone of the story and the personalities of the characters extremely well.
This story is about a bunch of honest, self-serving, greedy rich people fighting a bunch of self-deluded, pillaging, hypocritical rich people, trains, and industrialists.
It doesn't sound that appealing and honestly, I was very skeptical, but I really enjoyed it, a lot.
If you have the time, I would definitely recommend this audiobook.
Sure, but probably only because it was Jim Dale reading it.
It's just personal preference, but I didn't really find this book that engaging. The premise of the book seemed really interesting and the idea had the potential to be so much better than I think it turned out to be.
I think it would have been better if the author took some more time to flesh out the world that this story takes place in.
Although there was nothing wrong with the choice of words, the development of the story was shallow as a whole. Nothing was really well explained or expanded into. Nothing extremely engaging happens in this book.
The characters weren't well developed and their relationships don't seem like a natural progression. It feels like they do the things they do not out of personal choice, but it's what the author wants to happen, if that makes sense.
Personally, I found the ending of this novel as lackluster as the end of the Twilight Series and upon finishing this novel, I was left feeling wholly unsatisfied.
Honestly, I would recommend any of my friends to just wait and watch the movie if they're interested in this book.
I've listened to Jim Dale read Harry Potter so many times that I admit, him narrating this novel played a huge part in my decision to get the audiobook.
His performance was spectacular, though that opinion may be (read: definitely is) extremely biased.
The only reason I gave him 4/5 stars is because I could recognize some of the Harry Potter characters in the voices he used for this book. Honestly, I found that kind of funny and I didn't mind it so much but there it is.
If the world and its characters were better developed and more substantial.
This story as a whole doesn't really live up to whatever hype it has but honestly, I'll probably listen to it again just because I like Jim Dale.
