Publisher's Summary

Everybody says that Gwendolyn Chant is a gifted witch with astonishing powers, so it suits her enormously when she is taken to live in Chrestomanci Castle. Her brother Eric (better known as Cat) is not so keen, for he has no talent for magic at all.However, life with the great enchanter is not what either of them expects and sparks begin to fly!Winner of the Guardian Award.

Deserves 6 stars for performance. No, 10.

Would you consider the audio edition of Charmed Life to be better than the print version?

No. It is abridged. Hence the loss of one star.

Who was your favorite character and why?

All of them. My least favourite was Chrestomanci. He sounded too old. I picture Hugh Jackman as Chrestomanci (in fancy dressing gowns).

Which scene was your favorite?

Ginger bread man was missing!

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

No. But I will listen to it multiple times.

Any additional comments?

Pleeeease get him to do the entire book.How about Howl's moving castle?

Good story

I read this book years ago and enjoyed hearing it again. The music playing over the story was annoying.

Brilliant story and storytelling

Loved this book as a child and enjoyed it just as much listening to it again as a 29 year old.
