I had just finished John Sweeneys book about Scientology and decided to try this.
Very different type of book.
Easy to listen to story about an English lady escaping kids over the mountains out of Burmah.

Where does Elephant Moon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This story was compelling, exciting and heartwarming all at the same time. A great read and one I will return to more than once.
What other book might you compare Elephant Moon to, and why?
The author gives credit to Elephant Bill (still sitting on our bookshelf from 40 odd years ago) which is the true life account of refugees and elephants and more.
Which character – as performed by Helen Johns – was your favourite?
Mother and little Oomi were my favourites - how could you not love the elephants?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When Oomi was caught in the flash flood I just had to read on to discover his fate.
Any additional comments?
Although this is fiction, it is based on fact. The elephants' skill and knowledge is well documented as is their close relationship with their handlers. The story put me through a whole range of emotions - much the same as Grace, the heroine, would have had.
