I have not read such a beautiful story in a very long time! A perfect narrator in Jeremy Irons and a fabulously crafted tale by Paulo Coelho ... a definite must read!!!!!

Better than the first!!!

Of all the books I've listened to, it has become (often painfully) apparent that one's voice can make or break an Audio book. Camille Coduri is perfect!!! A beautiful warm, confident voice that rises, falls and rises again to draw you in and immerse you in the magic that is Doctor Who!!!! Pangalaxic Gargle Blasters all round!!!!!

Oh dear ... so close!!!!!!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The story in itself is great. It is quite obvious why this book has been made into a movie. However - Ransom Riggs - how on earth (for one so young) could you think for one moment think that modern teenagers use phrases like 'parenthetical scars' ... the story is great but you need to talk to some kids and take lots of notes!!!! I have never in my 45 years heard ANY kid use such overblown language.

How could the performance have been better?

Yes!!!!! The narrator. Jesse Bernstein ... sounds young and inexperienced. Consequently his portrayal of the various characters leaves a lot to be desired. His enunciation is a crime against ones ears and his accents are fantastically horrible. However, it would seem that Mr Bernstein has been around the block once or twice so it is not wrong to have higher expectations. An investment in an awesome elocution teacher would be wise.
