INCOMPLETE STORY

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Having the final sentence included in this audiobook!

What did you like best about this story?

Everything apart from the lack of ending.

Any additional comments?

Ordered this audiobook as I used to listen to this on cassette when I was a child, and loved it! I was so excited when I finally found a digital copy, and was happy to pay, only to listen to it and find that the ending has been cut off! For anybody that hasn't read the book/doesn't plan on reading the book, the ending will forever be a mystery! I enquired and was passed between several people but no resolution has been found or attempted. You're better off just reading the book in it's entirety!

Good Book, bad recording

What would have made Don’t Pat the Wombat better?

I downloaded this wanting to do a listening post for my child that is reading the book. My son was reading the book as he was listening. This audiobook skips paragraphs and even chapters and makes following along to increase his reading fluency skills a heartache. Not worth the download at all. If you're going to make an audiobook for it at least have the whole book (the ending was chopped off) and don't skip paragraphs let alone chapters.

A childhood favourite still just as good!

I can’t count how many times I borrowed this audiobook from my school library in the nineties, and to find it nearly 20 years later brought back so many memories. This is a hilarious book about life, and relationships, told through the eyes of a stereotypical Australian 12 year old recounting his experiences on school camp. However it is not simply a children’s book, the author confronts alcoholism head on, among other social issues, delicately weaving the child’s observations and innocently formed opinions into a tale that is rich with humour and love. The performance enhances the story, making you feel like you were having your ear chewed off by our enthusiastic youngster. I loved this as a child, and I am pleasantly surprised at the layers it contains and the questions that are left unanswered for an adult mind. I can’t recommend this enough!

Love it!

Listened to this when I was a child and I'm very glad to have found it again.

Great story, very emotional, now I'm able to understand a lot of the jokes that went over my head as s kid.
