Well narrated. Well acted! He knows the characters completely. Very enjoyable to listen to. thanks
This Classic tale for young boys stands the test of time and entertains audiences of all ages. It is a book that is fun to read. I found myself at many places thinking of my favorite movie: The Princess Bride. There are no Pirates here -- but the kidnappings, the love from afar, the farcical trial... it adds up to a story full of all the things that a reader could want. The history is not perfect but if you follow the book with a reading of Sparknotes you will get a good feeling for where it goes astray.
This year I am attempting to read more of the Classics, and this book is a rewarding reason to do so. I loved it.
B J Harrison does a good job. His narration is subtle and quiet but he builds the tension appropriately. I did enjoy Simon Prebble's narration of The Remains of the Day more, and think that he may have been a slightly better choice to read this book too.
