Good Abridged Version
I do not usually leave reviews of audiobooks, but since this book only has one vague rating, I felt compelled to write a more descriptive review.
First, do know that this is abridged. This should be clear based on its length, but sometimes we all tend to overlook these things. Having read the actual novel, I can say that this a faithful and fun adaptation that is divided into relatively short chapters. While I assume this series was meant for children, I still enjoyed the book; it's a good review of the story and its plot.
I tend to listen to audiobooks multiple times, and I enjoy listening to shorter and abridged versions of things because (1) I'm busy, and (2) I am more of a story/plot person than a character one. If you are similar, you should enjoy this reasonably priced audiobook.
Lastly, the performance is consistent and professional, but I am not a huge fan of the narrator's voice. This is a personal preference, so be sure to take advantage of the free sample to judge for yourself.

Not accurate for gcse learning
The narrator has a nice voice but that's about it for this of the book. He skips and rephrases it which is not at all helpful when studying the book for exams.
