Publisher's Summary

Fact: A Goon is a being who melts into the foreground and sticks there.…
When the Goon turns up demanding "Archer’s 2,000", life turns upside down. As Howard desperately tries to get to the bottom of this peculiar demand, he discovers that the town is run by seven crazy wizards (not all of whom live in the present!) and someone is trying to take over the world!
Exciting, bizarre and truly hilarious!

Outstanding narration

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

For those who love fantasy, you can't go past Diana Wynne Jones for invention. Yet this book somehow failed to grip me; perhaps it was sheer awefulness of Awful. Margoyles has turned this into one of my favourite audiobooks.

What did you like best about this story?

This is not my favourite Diana Wynne Jones story by far, but the narration makes it outstanding.

What does Miriam Margolyes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She is a consummate voice actress. Her portrayal of Dillon makes you believe a glamorous beauty is mouthing the words.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, but I enjoyed every moment.

Any additional comments?

Please get MM to do The Ogre Downstairs.
