Fantastic

This is simply fantastic. A great book as a base, paired with an excellent performance by Jessica Preddy, makes this audiobook engaging and entertaining. I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a good mystery.

Children's book

The blurb or details don't indicate that this is really a young teen book.
I erroneously bought it thinking it was intended for an adult reader and shall be returning it..
The narrator, too I think is very young as her pronunciation, diction and reading was spirited but amateurish.
I am sure young listeners would enjoy this.

It was ok

I'm wondering if I found a children's book by mistake. But as the title says it was ok.
