I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the narration. I hadn't read any reviews or any plot prior to listening to this rendition - and I just could not place what was so incredibly gripping about it, or put it in a specific genre. It is a very interesting book, with typical cheesy adolescent nonsense and a sinister undertone.

I love this book, but really disliked this narration.

A classic, enduring Brit mystery. The audio edition was good, but began to wear on me with some very silly banter. By the last chapters I'd reached a point I really didn't care how it ended.
