Audiobook to listen in One Go

Beautiful narration and the plot is ornated with music which makes it more interesting to hear.

Music was annoying

Whilst I liked the dramatisation I could not get along with the music that kept playing and ended up returning it before I was even 20 minutes in.
I ended up purchasing the normal reading of the book instead.
The sample was a good representation of the reading however I didn’t realise the music that played towards the end of the sample is similar the the kind of music that was played quite a few times and it was quite distracting when played with characters speaking as well

This might be great for some but just not to my taste

Very good

Excellent radio play. Could have been longer. Great atmosphere created. All actors did a wonderful job.
