    "A disappointment"
    What would have made A Bridge to the Stars better?

    It would have been good if this book had a plot. It meandered around introducing us to the people in the boy's village and spent a lot of time with him kicking himself about mistakes he made. I kept waiting for the plot to begin.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Francis Greenslade?

    I was tempted to listen at double speed--this read is s l o w!


    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I'm sorry I bought the sequel before listening to this book--it even has the same awful narrator. Bummer.


    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to some of Henning Mankell's detective novels for adults and liked them. This children's book went nowhere very slowly.

    "Magical"

    I think this was written for children, but that does not at all detract from the prose which is excellently and beautifully crafted. The style so surprised me as I have only before experienced Henning Mankell though the Wallander series. Mankell really is a fantastic writer and as much as I love Wallander, I feel like I have discovered a jewel in his non-crime fiction.
