Der Schauspieler Rainer Strecker, der auch "Tintentod" und "Tintenblut" interpretierte, entführt seine Zuhörer in eine abenteuerliche Welt. Ulrich Maskes Musik, mal meditativ, mal hochdramatisch, bietet Stationen zum Reflektieren zwischen den Kapiteln.

Darf man die Musik loben, die sich zwischen die hypnotische Lesung von Rainer Strecker schiebt? Kinderhörbuch des Jahres? Auch das!
So vielschichtig ist dieser Roman, so komplex, prall und mit buntem Leben gefüllt, dass man gebannt zuhört und nicht mehr abschalten kann.
--Jury der hr2 Hörbuch-Bestenliste
I first read this story more than a decade ago and was immediately captivated, ultimately reading the entire trilogy. I was thrilled to discover the audiobook - thank you Audible for finally expanding the choices for additional languages.
I had high expectations for the audio version and these were met. The performance was well done.
One addition to the audiobook is music between chapters. In some ways this was a nice, creative addition. I wish, though, that it hadn't been at the expense of all of the great quotes that begin each chapter in print. I also wish the sound engineer had paid closer attention to the volume levels: without exception, the musical interludes were significantly louder than the spoken tracks. In fact, they were so loud that the constant need to adjust the volume became a distraction as well as a nuisance. Instead of the music enhancing the story as it very well could have done, it detracted.
Otherwise, this is a highly recommended story and performance.
