"Good night mister Tom"
It's a very emotional but amazing book I love it
My favourite book. I love it
loved it very good book not very long easy listen. great for children too will definitely have listen again! !!
I had this book and audiobook as a child and happily listen to or read it again now. The story is well-crafted and moving, and the narration by Malahide is one of the best I've heard. The abridgement is also well-handled and maintains the crux of the story whilst cutting the length to a digestible amount. Music interludes throughout to break up the story into sections are a welcome edition. I'd recommend this story to young teens specifically and anyone who is looking for genuine poignancy in their audiobook.
"One of my all time fav books"
Absolutely love this book, read as a teenager many yrs ago it's still as good tday. It is a story that will make u cry but is heartwarming too.
"solid 4 star"
i loved it great voice to tell this story but the ending wasn't the best it felt bit cut short
"Exciting, interesting, sometimes sad"
It's a great War story about a boy whose life changes. I would recommend it to people aged 10+
Great story for any age. Easy to listen too, excellent narrator. Have listened twice now!
"A classic must read"
I very much enjoyed listening to this book. It's a great story well written. Both happy and sad.
