Preformed by the BBC with a style reminiscent of old time radio shows. It's like The Shadow meets Dr. Who with a fantasy twist.

Very difficult to follow..audio skips around between scenes and characters. The stories were very imaginative but poorly executed.
Superb. enthralling. I was so disappointed when it ended . rather than one reader or was a host of talented actors. I would truly recommend this production.

A BBC production is always good, the actors are fine but I confess that I found the sound effects quite bewildering at times. The book seems to be based on British folk tales and you gain a strong sense of that through the whole thing.
The first "episode" (remembering that this was broadcast in instalments) drops you straight into the middle of Pilgrim's life story. Each episode or chapter is an individual tale around a few main protagonists involving very long time frame as it turns out. I had no idea what was happening for much of the first few chapters/episodes and mostly because in a drama, as opposed to a book, much detail is left unexplained and the sound effects are not self explanatory, merely noisy and confusing, but the quality of the performers kept me involved.
I'm glad I stuck with it and was sorry there wasn't more by the time the book ended.
Recommend listening for those who enjoy a touch of mystery and magic set in countryside Britain where the old ways could still exist, where one could walk the ancient paths.
