The Wonderful O shows Thurber at his most playful and witty in his mastery of story and language. I first read this in my teens and have never forgotten it.
The tale is one of great relevance to today's world. I recommend it most highly and hope that you will enjoy it as much as I do.
Melissa Manchester gives an inspired reading.
Be aware that there is a strange sort of half summary before the real tale begins. This summary is not part of the book and feels as if it is a truncated something left here by mistake.
Perhaps there isn't much magic in everyday life, but something magical can happen when you read a good book.
Most series start off with one strong book and have the tendency to dwindle in later books. That is not the case when it comes to the Skulduggery Pleasant series, which only gets better. I enjoyed this book although it is not as good as the later ones. However, the characters must be introduced and that required some scene setting.
The narrator does a very good job and brings the book to life. I highly recommend it and strongly advise to download the later books as well.
