A review for the audio SSB

Too often reviews of audio books concentrate on the story and forget to mention the skill thathas gone into the narration. Sue Magee, in the Bookbag, doesn't make that mistake.

This is what she says about Anna Bentinck's narration: "the narration is superb. If asked before I listened to the book I would have said that a 'good reader' could narrate a story, but Bentinck moves reading into a different profession. She's - for want of a better term - a voice artist, capturing each individual character perfectly and bringing them to life. I listened as though to a play."
