I am 62 years old and found myself completely enraptured by the combination of Grath Nix's prose and Tim Curry's narration. I am thrilled to have discovered this series that now ranks #1 on my list of all time favorite fantasy novels.

Paradoxically if an adult wants original fantasy literature (that is not Lord of the Rings redux) the best place to look is in the "teen" section. Sabriel is a great example. The reader is great and the story is even better. Very original, exciting, adverturous, and (since I can't get the next 2 books in the series on audio)it has me rushing to the bookstore to buy the two other books in the trilogy. Very fun. Don't miss it.

My 13 year old son and I have recently discovered Garth Nix so I decided to add this story to my i-pod library.I was not disappointed. Nix creates an imaginary world that is both exciting and full of new ideas and notions. I have since bought the book for my son and he found it equally diverting and we have had lots of dicussions about this new world that has been opened up for us. Get through the first couple of chapters which can be a little confusing and you are in for a treat. My son has already moved on to the second book. What greater success could an author ask for?

One of the few audiobooks you cant stop listening too, the combination of excellent writing by Garth Nix and the calming tones of Tim Curry. A truely imaginative book that consistantly has you thinking. 5 stars

A harry Potter like universe except with a lot more dead and one of my favourite lead female characters I've known, I now will lose money getting the next book earlier because of how much I want to see the rest of Sabriels story.
Despite my attempts it was very hard to pause every time I had to go, when I'd rather stay and listen for one more chapter.
I'm glad I took this recommendation and so will you

This series is stunning to read/listen to. Nix's writing style is rather visual and emotive and I fell in love with the characters in this book. Tim Currys voice really suits the story and the final listening experience is wonderful. I can't wait for Lirael!
