I've loved listening to these stories and was soon to be very upset with Brian for his poor narration. Then I read the reviews... and listened clear through. Loved it. Just goes to show it's good to read the reviews :D Some stuttering, coughing (wonder if he had a cold) for a prologue but once chapter one starts it is a very well narrated story. Happy Listening.
The opening is a little odd (the author coughs and seems disoriented in his reading)! But never mind that. Afterward, it is a great listen.
Initially I was extremely critical with Brian Jacques narration as he is stuttery and coughs in the first 10 mins. He quickly warms up and delivers a wonderful rendition of an excellant story that kept me spellbound and not wanting to remove my earplugs. His characters are easily discernable and full of colour. I love this story and the excellant narration.
I had been looking for this book in libraries and bookstores without success when I finally came across it on the audible store. I immediately bought it. It is really intriguing just like all of his books. However, in the first ten minutes or so he seems a little disoriented and coughs. But I still LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE it
