    "Very Engaging and though provoking"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes, the book is dramatised and it makes it very interesting to listen. The use of mild music is also soothing and adds to the drama

    "disappointed"

    I have read the book a number of times and enjoyed it. Sadly this dramatised version is far from the original text and left me feeling very disappointed. If you have never read the book then it might entertain, but if you have any knowledge of the book I would avoid this at all costs. The emphasis was completely wrong for me, possibly I missed the point when I previously read the book. This version seemed to focus on one aspect of the story and almost completely ignore, what was for me, the point of the book.

    "Oh dear!"

    It was a mistake to get the dramatised version i.e. huge chunks and half the point missing.

    I have fond memories of this book and it would have been perfect as a reading.

    It's my own fault for buying in a hurry and not spotting that it was a dramatisation.
