I'm old and loved this book. And I'm recommending it to my children. So much wisdom. Being old has it's 'up' side. Barbara Caruso's performance was pitch perfect. Brava! A thoroughly enjoyable experience!

Thandie Newton does a spectacular job on this one. A thoroughly enjoyable experience. I put Thandie up there with Juliet Stevenson, and that's a great compliment!

Is no one paying attention?

Reader mispronounced 'Koch' throughout. It sounded like it was read by a high school student. I'm not inspired to listen to any of your other titles. I fear this lack of attention to detail might spill over into the actual content.

Reader mispronounced 'Koch' throughout. A fail on this count doesn't inspire much confidence in your attention to detail, possibly spilling over into content.

Lovely story, beautifully written. Cements my opinion of Juliet Stevenson as the world's best narrator.

Pitch Perfect!

Ray Porter did a magnificent job. Very well performed, which always brings added enjoyment.

A trite story with seemingly inappropriate language for the time. Fairly clicheed. Accents (Spanish and Polish) sounded uniformly Russian. Sweet story but not great literature. Watch Woody Allen's 'Midnight in Paris' instead to get a feel for the glory of Paris during the time of Gertrude Stein.

Heartbreaking

I loved the story, but the performance would have been better left to a professional reader.

No Hollywood Ending

Robin Field's tone was perfect for the style of prose. Loved the writing. Story was strangely riveting. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Would you consider the audio edition of Midnight's Children to be better than the print version?

Having spoken to people who found reading this book a bit difficult, I suspect the audio version may be more enjoyable. I couldn't get enough of it.

Any additional comments?

Lyndam Gregory's perfomance is amazing. I was totally surprised by how funny it is, certainly enhanced by Gregory's style. Bravo!
