OK

A fairly predictable story. Narrator has a nice, but not over exciting voice. May try others in the series if they are on offer.

I wish there was more

I think this book is aimed at younger readers, but who cares. It is entertaining and I really enjoyed listening to Neil's narration. Being narrated by the author means you get what he meant which may not always happen with others. Would recommend to all ages.

Great story

An excellent story. I have continued straight to book 2 I enjoyed it so much. Yolanda Kettle's narration is very good too.

I hope there is a sequel

An interesting view of the future and a different take on a class system. As usual, Jasper Fforde delivers a story that is off the wall. I didn’t want to stop listening to this and Gareth Armstrong’s narration certainly helps. I really hope there is a sequel to this as I would love to know how things progress.

Love this

I recommend reading all three books in the series in order (I hope there will be more). If you enjoy Jasper Fforde's other books, these will not disappoint. If you haven't read Jasper Fforde and you like slightly wacky fantasy, read these.
Jane Collingwood's narration is brilliant, she has such a mix of voices that she brings the characters to live.

A fund book

Would you consider the audio edition of Laughing Gas to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version, but I think Jonathan Cecil's narration is so entertaining that it brought the book to life.

What does Jonathan Cecil bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I love his different voices and he made the characters real.

Any additional comments?

I haven't read PG Wodehouse before. This was an excellent introduction. A fun, enjoyable story.

Another great read

I have listened to the first four books in the series and enjoyed them all. This one does not disappoint. As well as a good bit of fantasy detective work, I also like learning things about London - certainly makes me look at things differently when I visit. I enjoy Kobna Holdbrook-Smith's narration and I would always be interested in other books he has narrated.

A gripping story

This is one of those books that I had to listen to at any available moment. I wanted to know what was going to happen next. The concept is interesting and I liked the characters' development. It is a book that stayed with me and that I will listen to again in the future. I enjoyed the Twilight series, but I like this even better.

A Classic Well Read

It was many years since I had read this book and it was a good book to listen to and remember whilst I walked the dog along the sea wall. It was like visiting an old friend. There were parts that I still remembered, but others I had forgotten about. if you haven't read this, I would recommend you read it. If you have read it already, definitely worth revisiting and Michael York was a good choice as narrator.
