What the Critics Say

"A romp that lives up to the standard set by Larklight, its wildly imaginative predecessor. Huzzah!" (Kirkus Reviews)

    "Not great quality"

    The recording is a little tinny or something in this recording, I found it difficult to listen to due to acoustics. I've listened to all his other books with the same narrator with no problem. Perhaps it was the sound quality, but I also found this plot less engaging than the others. Still worth a listen, but not as magical.

    "Couldn't get into it"

    Don't buy!!! The narrator is very high pitched. I wanted to listen to the novel - but the high pitched nasal squeal of the narrator meant that I just couldn't get into it. And I've listened to a lot of audiobooks - but really.. the narration for this one is awful.

    I don't know how good this novel is (couldn't finish it) - but I know one thing - I'll avoid this particular narrator!!!
