Publisher's Summary

Winner of the Gold Nestle Smarties Book Prize, Philip Reeve received five starred reviews for Larklight. The extraordinary adventure of that book continues in Starcross, as Art and Myrtle receive an ominous warning from an ancient superhuman (their mum). The solar system is on the brink of invasion - from highly intelligent hats from the future!

"A romp that lives up to the standard set by Larklight, its wildly imaginative predecessor. Huzzah!" ( Kirkus Reviews)

Not great quality

The recording is a little tinny or something in this recording, I found it difficult to listen to due to acoustics. I've listened to all his other books with the same narrator with no problem. Perhaps it was the sound quality, but I also found this plot less engaging than the others. Still worth a listen, but not as magical.

Couldn't get into it

Don't buy!!! The narrator is very high pitched. I wanted to listen to the novel - but the high pitched nasal squeal of the narrator meant that I just couldn't get into it. And I've listened to a lot of audiobooks - but really.. the narration for this one is awful.

I don't know how good this novel is (couldn't finish it) - but I know one thing - I'll avoid this particular narrator!!!
