The Lives of Christopher Chant: The Crestomanci Series | [Diana Wynne Jones]

The Lives of Christopher Chant: The Crestomanci Series

Discovering that he has nine lives and is destined to be the next ‘Chrestomanci’ is not part of Christopher’s plans for the future: he’d much rather play cricket and wander around his secret dream worlds. But he soon finds that destiny is difficult to avoid, and that having more than the usual number of lives is pretty inconvenient - especially when you lose them as easily as he does!

    "Would be fantastic if it weren't for the music"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This is a great story, and beautifully read. Unfortunately it's ruined by horrible synthesizer music, over the beginning and end of the chapters.

    "Another Wonderful DWJ Book"

    Chronologically the first Chrestomanci book (though I think it is better to read "Charmed Life first) and a wonderful book.

    I only have two problems with this version, firstly it is abridged which is a shame, secondly the narrator who is mostly good makes one or two of the characters have annoying whiney voices which, for me, grated.
    As a whole I like this audiobook, but whether I will listen to it again I'm not sure.

    However, let's have more DWJ books please Audible :)
