The writing puts you right in the middle of the room with the protagonist, and Meryl Streep really brings her to life with her charming and heartfelt narration. There's not a single dull moment here. Funny, with a side of heartbreak.

Great story experience enhanced by narrator

This could be someone casually telling you about their day over afternoon tea. Languid, but the short chapters or episodes keep you hooked. The narrator’s voice and accents vividly bring to life the setting in Lagos. I throughly enjoyed a point of view I haven’t come across before. Entertaining and engrossing.

The mythological fix we deserve

Stephen Fry’s delightfully animated narration of an equally delightful narrative of the gods’ escapades is simply wonderful. This is fabulous writing read to you with love.

This book will rip your soul into two with the hope that it all gets better in the end, because it has to

Needless to say, Arundhati Roy’s writing is beautiful. It is poetic, it is visual, and it very skilfully weaves a real world into the fabric of fiction. Coupled with how she narrates that story, which is a narration and not a reading makes you feel what her characters are feeling right in your bones. Ending this book with empathy I hadn’t expected to have.

Kate Winslet has done such a sensational job of narrating this childhood favourite. There’s different voices and accents and emotion and it’s simply a blast listening to her tell you Matilda’s story. I highly recommend it.
