What a wonderful book! I thought the story was very original, unpredictable and quite wonderful. I have always liked this narrator and thought he was perfect. All the characters seem quite real and varied. I have a hard time with the negative review posted here, obviously someone who does not like fantasy. Also I have never considered Simon Jones a "soothing" reader -- on the contrary I find him quite invigorating!

At first I thought this book was a little too much like others about thieving street children, but Cornelia Funke is now one of my favorite writers and her characters are fabulous, alive and fun. Lots of twists and turns - I'm always amazed at her ability to think up so many adventurous plot twists that all come together in the end. Really fun listen. If you haven't listed to Inkheart & Inkspell, though, those are must listens for those of us who love these types of books! And if you like these books and haven't yet listened to "His Dark Materials" (starts with the Golden Compass), by all means do. Not the same author, but great fantasy adventures, too.
