    I have been meaning to read Lost Horizon for years but never got around to it until I got the audio version and listened. The book was just as interesting and enjoyable as I had hoped and I think was very well read.

    Story

    I remember reading this one for school a long time ago so thought I would revisit it with my 12 year old son and I can say we loved it. In fact, I would say it is one of the best books I have read, it is beautifully written and we found it quite gripping to listen to, but what I most enjoyed is the way it makes you think, both about the story of David's escape and travels, and the ideas in the book. I enjoyed it as a child, but I got so much more out of it as an adult.

    Jo March Bhaer, who first appeared in Little Women, returns as the compassionate mentor to the boys and girls of Plumfield school. The original students are now young men and women, scattered the world over but always drawn to Plumfield to share their experiences. With fond memories of their school days to comfort them, the young men travel far and wide in search of happiness and fulfillment. The firebrand Dan finds adventure and peril in the American West. Emil’s life is threatened as he sails the high seas. And all the while, tender romances are finally blossoming.

    Story

    I love the whole March story and we listened right through from Little Women, but I thought this reader missed the mark a little, she isn't good at different voices so it was difficult at times to know which character was speaking, and at times I felt she had the emphasis in the wrong place, and some words seemed to be pronounced a little oddly. This said, we did listen to the whole book and still enjoyed it.
