I had to read this book (umong many) for my literature for children class and knowing I am a slow reader I opted to try audiobooks. This was the first book I have ever listened to on audio so for me it took a little getting used to.
The book was slow in the beginning. It also bounced around time periods quite frequently which sometimes made it hard to follow at times. Even my daughter (9) said she had a hard time following some of the book at times. Of course by the end of the book it all comes together, the lessons become evident, and you say- That was a good book!
