"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)
The first book in the series sets a wonderful tone and pace for the rest of the series. Great for kids and adults.
It was a reasonably realistic children’s adventure with some unpredictable events.
No, but Alex Jennings does an excellent job.
No, it’s a bit too long for a single sitting.
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.
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.
