The story begins well, then strays slightly into Harry Potter parallels, but brings itself back magnificently. A really good listen - Gemma Wheelan really brings the story alive, particularly in her portrayal of Jupiter North. Looking forward to the next book.

A cracking follow-up

The second and possibly more thrilling chapter in this series, currently being enjoyed by young and older alike. A good story, lots of interesting detail and insight that allows children to access topics in round-about ways. A great listen, we are really looking forward to the next installment.

Great story, captivating and fun.

The second installment is just as exciting as the first, with interesting plots and fun twists. Way too much singing by David Tennant, which isn't very good and a bit off-putting.

Full of lovies and Hollywood name-drops

Marginally interesting, would have liked more background on the behind the scenes on films etc., but overall not too bad.

A good listen, frustrating ending.

A good overall conclusion to the trilogy, but a really frustrating and I felt somewhat lazy ending, taking the easy option. It will annoy and frustrate some fans of Dolly (myself included), but I guess that's the writer's prerogative.

Great story, too much singing!

Another cracking story in the series, which both I and my son love. David's performance when reading is great, but please, refrain from singing!! Stay in your lane!!

Not bad, but not her best.

This book takes forever to get going and I nearly gave up at the start, as there was way too much detail at the beginning, even allowing for establishing characters...... However, I stuck with it and overall, it's a good listen that sucks you in.

The recipes sound really good, but it's really hard to follow when there is no PDF to go with it, as someone else has mentioned. Might be best to go with a book that has reference material.

Great Story, strangely read.

Really good story, but I was a bit put off by the narrator - she's clearly Irish, why not read in an Irish accent? Shame, as it distracted from the story, which is compelling.
