Would you listen to Tales of the Peculiar again? Why?
Definitely - even if the book wasn't as fun, Simon Callow's reading of it is out of this world!
What did you like best about this story?
The cleverness of the stories and the morality of the characters
Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?
All of them, the narration was perfect in every way.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Some of the stories are quite sad, but they usually have an upbeat ending - even the last one which is should supposedly end sadly has a happier ending added by "the editor".
Any additional comments?
This is such a lovely book to listen to - one of my favourite ever audio books.
