We downloaded the audiobook after seeing the movie, and our expectations were exceeded. While there were a few parts that were lost on being an audiobook (like when words were being spelt out), overall the book was fantastic. Having finished it yesterday we are now suffering from the sadness of finishing a great book.

Much like the last two books in the series, this book is a nice and enjoyable story to listen along to, and Julia Whelan does just as good a job narrating it.

Wish it was the first in a series

Another one I really enjoyed, a good listen that doesn't need your full attention. I reached the end of the audiobook and was disappointed that it finished - I found myself wishing it was the beginning of a series. Julia Whelan did a great job narrating, really bring the characters alive with her narration.

Great book, great performance

Another book in the "easy listening" category that I often enjoy, and exactly what I was after. A light-hearted story that kept my attention throughout. I picked this audiobook because it was narrated by Jilly Bond, and was not disappointed. I've already listened to it again.

Disappointed that it ended

I really enjoyed this book, the story was lovely and the characters endearing, but what really made it for me was Jilly Bond's narration - it was fantastic!!

Best use of a credit

I've listened to "a short history of nearly everything" before and I enjoyed "at home" just as much. It's great for listening to in short bursts as each chapter doesn't rely on the previous one, but is explained in such a way that listening for a longer period isn't overwhelming. I can see myself listening to this again as there is no way I will be able to remember all of it after one reading and I think it would be just as enjoyable a second time around. Bill Bryson is a fantastic reader, really drawing you into his superb writing. I couldn't recommend this more.
