I bought this book as an escape from my business and personal development books, and because Tom Hiddleston narrated it. I didn't know much about it, and had no expectations. What I got was a story filled with magic and mystery, and was pleasantly surprised when I realised Tom was playing all the characters as if he were in the theatre. The way he can manipulate his voice is impressive. This book kept my attention and I was entertained from start to finish. A fantastic plot, and a brilliant performance from Tom. I'm really looking forward to seeing how this book is adapted to the big screen now. Thank you Sally for your imagination, and to Tom for your devotion to bringing the audiobook to life.

I can't get enough of this book, I'm now ordering it in print so I can reread, highlight, make notes and study my little heart out. Subscription business models make my heart so a beat and this book has catapulted to the top of my faves list. Thank you John for writing it, and Don for reading it to me!
