I almost passed over this book because the premise seemed so simple. However from the first 5 minutes I could barely turn it off. The performance was excellent and the story had just enough unpredictable turns to keep my attention at a time when I was highly distractable. I expect I will remember it better than most of the 35-40 books I read and listen to each year.

The story itself is enjoyable, touching, and well paced. The narrators do an okay job with the adult voices, but the children's voices are difficult to listen to. The youngest child's voice is monotone and always shouting. The voice of the 13 year old boy sounds more like a middle aged man. A better narrator would have made this book a 5.
