AR is a great writer of Pride & Prejudice variations. The witty repartee shines. The prose is high quality.
Slightly warmer than Georgette Heyer but still very sensual rather than physical.
Favourite scene. Lisbeth's late night departure from Bentham park.
Extremely good narration.
But still a few mispronunciations? Isn't it per-goal-a?
The narration by Michael York is outstanding.
It was difficult to make sense of the story because of the small amount of the original text used.
No. But I'd be interested to listen to further books by him.
No brainer. Ramses.
The music was sometimes distracting.
For those who love fantasy, you can't go past Diana Wynne Jones for invention. Yet this book somehow failed to grip me; perhaps it was sheer awefulness of Awful. Margoyles has turned this into one of my favourite audiobooks.
This is not my favourite Diana Wynne Jones story by far, but the narration makes it outstanding.
She is a consummate voice actress. Her portrayal of Dillon makes you believe a glamorous beauty is mouthing the words.
No, but I enjoyed every moment.
Please get MM to do The Ogre Downstairs.
No. It is abridged. Hence the loss of one star.
All of them. My least favourite was Chrestomanci. He sounded too old. I picture Hugh Jackman as Chrestomanci (in fancy dressing gowns).
Ginger bread man was missing!
No. But I will listen to it multiple times.
Pleeeease get him to do the entire book.How about Howl's moving castle?
