I don't know, since I didn't read the print version, however, I believe the narrator did add lots to the emotional appeal of the book.
I might listen to it again. To refresh my memory for later books or something. Over all, it wasn't my favorite story. But it was ok.
I can't begin to rave about this series. it's amazingly clever and touches the soul. Can't wait for the next book.
Loved it they continue to get better and better. I cant wIt to read the next story about Josh. Love it!!
