I'm a Cornelia Funke fan. Listen and enjoyed the INK HEART trilogy and loved RECKLESS. All her books have great narrators.
THE PERFORMANCE: In this one,Mr E. Hill does such a great job that although (at least for me) this book is not her best you can't but enjoy it
THE STORY: it's ok, a children's story. To be fair, is very good. Nice plot, although very simple. No dark twists, but well written and the characters are completely believable. So... Why am I complaining?! Because, I just love her more complicated not just for kids books!
OVERALL you can listen to the whole story, which has the bonus of not being unnecessaryly long, and mostly relish the rich, velvety, excellent performance of Mr E. Hill!
So, i'd said GO FOR IT, specially if you have kids and are planning a family longish ride.
