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.
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.
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.
