Is there anything you would change about this book?

A Classic Tale

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

A Classic Tale

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Alan Munro?

Alan Munro's narration was stilted, choppy and in short, plainly horrible. If I had not heard and enjoyed other audiobooks, his performance may have put me off the genre entirely!
