Brilliantly narrated by Sir Derek, a real treat!

Having never been inclined to want to read the book, Sir Derek breathes such life into the characters with his brilliant narrative, I was riveted throughout the whole story. Excellent, I'd recommend for all ages.

Too Abridged

Derek Jacobi is brilliant, naturally, one would not expect anything else. However this is not a long book and there is absolutely no need to abridge it. It is not as if it is dramatised where you might expect it to be adapted by a scriptwriter. So very good but not enough of it. The balance of the story has been so affected the spirit is lost.
