Positive Comments:
  • This narration is the best of any audio available, with the narrator’s wonderful belch making it especially endearing.
  • Winslet is completely authentic with every character so that listeners forget that only one person is narrating all the characters.

Concerns:

  • The sound levels sometimes vacillate, a technical issue that needs to be solved.
