I bought this audio book for my son when he was ten and he has listened to it and listened to it and listened to it. We have the Treasure Hunt too, but this is his favourite. As a result of all this listening Seb was able to impress his science teacher by explaining what a binary star system is. No great reader (or writer) audio books give him the pleasure of reading without any pain, and if he can be educated at the same time, as with this book, so much the better. Being able to spout forth at school about the stars has given him much needed confidence and sparked a desire for learning. If only all learning was this easy and enjoyable.

With a car full of diverse listeners in age and interests, this story kept us all entertained.
If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
Not sure who would enjoy the book. It didn't work as a story or as an introduction to physics.
Would you ever listen to anything by Lucy Hawking and Stephen Hawking again?
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of James Goode?
It wasn't the narrator's fault. The story was poor.
Any additional comments?
Having really enjoyed all other recommendations by Audible, I was really disappointed by this book.
