Would you listen to Lionboy again? Why?
I have purchased all three of the Lionboy stories and definitely plan to listen to them all again.
What other book might you compare Lionboy to and why?
This trilogy is a mixture of fantasy and adventure with the important element of great storytelling, perhaps a mixture of CS Lewis and Michael Morpurgo.
What does Simon Jones bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
What a great storyteller, he just brings the books to life!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
For practical reasons I couldn't listen to it all in one go (too long), but I certainly listened to it within a week.
Any additional comments?
Highly recommend for both adults and children.
