Genres:

  • Barbara S

    Interesting book that needs to be viewed from the perspective of the time frame it was written. Narrators were better than some.

  • Kelly Rucker

    I love this story and can't believe I never read it as a child. The numerous narrators can be both interesting and frustrating, as well as the break at the end of each chapter. But that's the price you pay for a free audiobook I suppose.
