Step into history...

This is wonderful!! I'll be honest I bought this purely based upon the fact that the audio version is read by the delectable Tom Hiddleston and boy does he make it entertaining! His wonderful and varied accents breathe such life into the characters.
The story itself is beautifully written, not knowing a great deal about the French revolution myself, Sally Gardner lets you almost taste history with her wonderful descriptions and colourful cast of characters.
I have such fondness for Yann and Sido and their respective path in and out of each other’s lives. Tetu is the kind of guardian you could almost wish for and both the marquis and dastardly Kalliovski are interesting and scary in different ways.
Perfection!!!

Luscious narration ...

Tom Hiddleston has the most wonderful voice for audio (and the talent / looks for so many other things) - I long to hear he's recorded more than just this rather good tale of the Revolution. Much, much appreciated ..!!
