I had already bought and read a hardcover copy of this excellent book, but I like Steven Crossley's reading so much that I bought the audiobook too. Diana Wynne Jones's books are a convincing blend of magic and ordinary life. Her characters are clearly drawn and memorable, The villains are menacing, and the good guys are charming, including the rather dangerous young giant who's filled with glee because his new clothes have zippers. Even the good guys don't always agree (for example, there's a prolonged silent contest over the arrangement of furniture), but we get to see friendship, humor, and loyalty among people willing to go out of their way to help each other.

Would you listen to Enchanted Glass again? Why?
I enjoyed the voice, characters and story very much and would like to revisit them another time.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Enchanted Glass?
Andrew visits Aidan's foster family and discovers that the story is more complicated than he had realized.
Which character – as performed by Steven Crossley – was your favorite?
While I liked most of the characters, Andrew - a person of magical talents, but not seeking after power, with, instead, a sense of responsibility and a passion for history, definitely engaged my sympathies the most.
Any additional comments?
This is a delightful story - suitable for children and adults.
