Excellent reading of a very good book
Nothing compares to reading a real book, written on actual paper! But this is a very good audio version.
This is a favorite book...I know it nearly by heart. I don't think I can point to only one mamorable moment.
Nick McArdle did an excelent job of reading the charactres. He did the accents well, without being annoying with them or being hard to understand.
Love the book. Loved the audible book, though I was very unsure if anyone could pullt it off. Mr. McArdle did, and did it beautifully.
