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.
I love all of Dana Wynne Jones's books and re-read or re-listen to them frequently, Archer's Goon is no exception and Miriam Margolyes is a great narrator.
Diana Wynne Jones wrote different types of fantasy/sci-fi/magic books and this is of the kind set in our own world but secretly magic exists.
The only very slight criticism is it isn't unabridged, but it is still really good :)
