What the Critics Say

"Jennings' ability is outstanding as he slips in and out of the numerous voices with the rapid dialogue as it approaches the climax....This is an outstanding reading of a classic tale that all young listeners and adults will thoroughly enjoy." (School Library Journal)

    "Excellent"

    The first book in the series sets a wonderful tone and pace for the rest of the series. Great for kids and adults.

    Story
    "Kids loved it"
    What made the experience of listening to Over Sea, Under Stone the most enjoyable?

    It was a reasonably realistic children’s adventure with some unpredictable events.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The suspense.


    Have you listened to any of Alex Jennings’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but Alex Jennings does an excellent job.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it’s a bit too long for a single sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    I did not like the instance or two of the kids lying. This is the first book of a sequence, but this book is far better than the second book.

    "Wonderful series!"

    The language, the adventure the characters are all so appealing and in particular mysterious. I just wonder as to why I cannot purchase the second book "The Dark is Rising"? This is the only matter that has let the listening go unchallenged. Please could you rectify this..... I would dearly love to hear the wonderful, magical description of all five books in sequence.
