Dangling along with her!

A well read and exciting tale from the middle of the last century. The author knows how to keep a story alive and exciting whilst the narrator has given this book life. An exciting listen for me.

Amazing audible!

I felt that it was an amazing book but the pronunciation for each character was hard to listen to. However it is a great Sudanese to listen to and recommend it highly

Amazing

I love Lauren Child's books, she is just all round amazing and I love the way the loose ends of the previous books all tie together and make sense. The performance was also really good, it took a while for me to get used to Ruby's voice and I think there was the wrong voice for agent Blacker but overall it was absolutely amazing.

I loved it

Wonderful story!!
I loved every minute of the story and you could tell easily which character we speaking because the voices were different and unique. The story was interesting and kept turning, you just didn't know what was going to happen next. I really want another book : but all things do have to end. You will never want to stop listening as it is like one big Clif hanger.
It puts alot of answers in your head that you would have wanted to know the answer to before. If you have not read the rest of the series in order I suggest you do before reading this book.
♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
