Wonderful book, wonderful reading
I sampled all the audiobooks on Audible to see which reading my kids would like best, and I picked this one, and I'm glad I did. Terry Jones does a fantastic job at giving each character his own voice; the other narrators hardly did so, or didn't even try. The extra characterization and the intonation made this a really great book for my kids to listen to.
I don't recommend it for younger kids because of the complicated language and words the author used. A lot of the story went over the head of my 6 year old, though my 9 year old understood most of it.

A great classic that is expertly read
Terry Jones reads this classic with great skill, wonderful accents and a sunny enthusiasm that is delightful. I found myself smiling along as he read, although the pace is a little brisk for listening in a very noisy environment.
Children of all ages will be enchanted by this book, and I'm glad I bought it. I look forward to listening to it often. It cheers me up whenever I'm feeling gloomy.
