Excellent book that kept me on the edge of my seat from the beginning! Funke takes you into a fantasy world like no other.. not into a world unknown but one brought to present day. When Meggie's father Mo reads out loud, he brings characters into the present giving you an exciting view from the characters in a book. This one you won't regret listening to!! BREATHTAKING!!

I'm writing this review purely for ADULT LISTENERS who, like me, enjoy listening to a good YA/children's story now and then...the kind of book that takes you away, makes you feel like a kid on an adventure again, erases the pressures of everyday life for a bit.
This book is not one of those. It's just too simple, flat, and predictable. It is not funny and embarrassingly engrossing like Jim Dale's reading of Harry Potter, nor intruiging, exciting, magical, intelligent and stimulating like Phillip Pullsman's Unabridged 'His Dark Materials' Trilogy .
This one really is a kiddies book, and although I think that the narrator is superb I cannot make myself finish listening to this.
I gave it three stars anyway because I'm sure that if you get this for your child, or even if you listen to it with a child, you will get some enjoyment out of it.
