My entire family has gotten hooked on this book, to the extent that we look for reasons to get in the car and drive with it. I was so enthralled that we ran out of gas. Imaginitive premise, interesting and well-developed characters, and many plot twists. I thought you could not top Jim Dale reading the Harry Potter stories, but this is right up there.
A word of advice: With different actors playing different characters, this did not play back well on level 2, and we almost gave up on it. Load it at the highest resolution you can play. If it seems a little slow at the start, hang in there. The characters keep getting more imaginitive, and the plot more suspensful.

Fantastic audio and a great story--highly recommended.
I saw the movie, and I thought it was great. However, as with any great film adaptation there is still much to be said about the unabridged book. There was a great deal left out of the movie that I experienced through this novel.
I only wish I had discovered this unabridged audiobook before I saw the movie so I could compare my imagination to the director's take.
Again, the audio quality and imaginative story make for a thoroughly entertaining listen--I highly recommend it.
