    Story
    "Sean Courtenay - brilliant"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Sound of Thunder to be better than the print version?

    Yes, always better to listen, especially with a great narrator


    What did you like best about this story?

    Main character Sean is brilliant


    What does John Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Excellent vocal range, natural enough to draw you into the story


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Little of both


    Any additional comments?

    This is a good story from a good author and features Sean Courtenay who's Smith's greatest creation, what's not to like? Ace narration too, a fantastic follow up to When the Lion feeds.

    This is my second Wilbour Smith book, I found this book just as captivating as the first. It's well worth the listen.
