"Fantasy fans will enjoy listening to narrator Gerard Doyle make the characters come to life and present Jones' entertaining descriptions of the magical parallel universe in which this story takes place." (School Library Journal)
"Magicians of Caprona", one of the original "Chrestomacni Quartet" before Jones went and wrote two more, is still one of my favorites. This audiobook version is an excellent substitute for reading it, as the narration is faithful and lively and quite enthralling. They also went to remarkable trouble to re-create the musical bits, which I found quite impressive. For fans of the series, this is a good one, and for newcomers it is an excellent insertion point.
By far one of the best. The story is great and the narrating was extremely well done.
"Oh what a clever fellow"
Gerard Doyle captures the essence of Punch very well.
Brilliant singing, great voice acting, soothing voice
Magically encouraged family feuds of Italia!
If there is ever a book you should have in your library...it's this one.
