I honestly don't think the production staff/actors behind this radio play could have done a better job of encapsulating the essence of the story and theme in Wyndham's work. You really get a sense of the confusion and trauma that this little boy is going through, along with the mystery of whether or not the voices in his head are real or imagined.

Great cast, interesting story. I wish my father was as rational! Recommended listening if you like the works of Wyndham or Kneale.
Living is easy with eyes closed... and headphones on.
I am for sure planning on listening to this again. It was quite a ride.
I liked the characters a lot and the soundtrack was amazing.
The conversation between chocky and the dad was mesmerizing.
Definitely a good story, highly recommended.
I loved this book when I first read it long ago. This dramatization captures the story in great detail. The acting is so professional it seems effortless. And the gradual ramping up of tension is done very well. I recommend this.
Not my favourite Wyndham novel but very entertaining anyhow. I liked the voice of Chocky & it was the perfect length for this short-ish book. I enjoy BBC dramas.
"didn't like it. found it slow and boring. sorry"
didn't really care about the characters and what happened. think it could of been done better.
Really enjoyed this listen. I listened twice all at once. A one I've always wanted to hear but never had. Well worth buying
"Because of Chocky"
This dramatization made me feel as if i was there within the story. I was considering closing my Audible account but Chocky changed my mind. Its probably one of the best audios I've listened to so far. I enjoyed every single moment. Each chapter i wanted to hear more.
