Great book and narration

Michael Page brings this book alive, and summons its characters, making them all the more memorable. His third-person narration is fast-paced and lively. Just get it. I demo'd every single recording as of late 2016, and none of them compare.

Best Narration

This is by far the best narration, just trust me. Michael Page does all of the voices wonderfully, which I think is one of the most important things. The book was excellently written, and had a very exciting plot.
