I needed to read this for a literature/writing class I'm teaching for 8th and 9th graders. I bought this audio book for my daughter with ADHD and slow processing speed disorder to listen to because it helps her process as she reads. I ended up listening too because I'm not particularly fond of Hawthorns writing style and just reading it had become tedious. As to the readers' performances: I thought the main narrator had a babyish tone to her voice like she was reading to preschoolers; the others who came into read for the other characters didn't seem to jive with the character thy were portraying, even pronouncing names differently than the main reader. That was very distracting. But the most egregious error was that the reading of the book was incomplete. There are still 10 pages left in the story of Jason and the Golden Fleece!
What a letdown not to know how the last story works out. It's like falling off a cliff with no bottom.
