My Son (9) chose this book and loved it, immediately begging for the second in the series. Some time later, I was on a road trip with a work colleague..Show More » and we decided to listen to it. The narration was fantastic, with different voices and accents given to each character. We really enjoyed the adventure, and when we finished our work travel and were a few chapters from the end still, my colleague felt compelled to purchase it too, so she could hear the end. I thoroughly recommend this audio book to anyone who enjoys adventure fantasy novels.
