Loved this story bit different for me.
My whole family listened to this on a drive down though France to Tarragona in Spain, my 15 year old daughter would not join us in our Holiday home until she had listened right to the end. That's how good this book is.
I read this book when I was in my early 20s and remember really enjoying it. Then the movie with the same name came out and I was excited to see it, until I found out it had nothing to do with the book. This was a book that really stuck in my head and I've thought about re-reading it many times over the years. It's always interesting to go back over something that you read when you were young and see how your tastes and opinions have changed. This time around I found myself zoning out and drifting off. Perhaps because I already knew how it was going to end. I still really enjoyed the idea behind the story, though, and would recommend it to anyone. Because it's abridged it's a really quick and easy listen. The narrator was fantastic. He did all of the accents (Swedish, German, American, British, British slang, female) very convincingly. I have mixed opinions about the music in the recording. I don't normally like music in audio books, however, I felt like it added more to this book than it detracted.

This book won't disappoint you. It grabs you at the start and holds for the entire ride. The ending will come as a surprise (at least I wasn't expecting it). There were a few areas of the story I found unlikely, but they didn't take away from the story too much. The characters are believable and well developed. Overall, I enjoyed this audiobook.
