  • "Half the length, twice the enjoyment"

    Overall

    If John Grisham wrote this story to reach a wider audience, I think he will succeed. This novel is far less technical than his legal thrillers, and much less tense. Still, the story moves along with pace and humour, and the characters are all believable and interesting.

    The narrator does a good job and by the end I was hoping the book would go on longer. Great story, brilliantly told.

    Half the man, twice the lawyer. In the small city of Strattenburg, there are many lawyers, and though he's only 13 years old, Theo Boone thinks he's one of them. Theo knows every judge, policeman, court clerk - and a lot about the law. He dreams of being a great trial lawyer, of a life in the courtroom. But Theo finds himself in court much sooner than he expected. Because he knows so much - maybe too much - he is suddenly dragged into the middle of a sensational murder trial.

    Where does Demon Dentist rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best.


    What did you like best about this story?

    My kids absolutely loved the narration by David Walliams. He is obviously quite dramatic and a genuinely funny sounding chap. You could say that, as the author, he probably had visions of how the characters spoke and reacted at certain times during the story.


    Have you listened to any of David Walliams’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listed to any other but my children have read all of the books and much preferred this audiobook.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the chair...............

I like to learn interesting stuff on midnight runs. And I need absorbing children's audio to stay sane on long car journeys.

    The new jaw-achingly funny novel from David Walliams, the number-one best-selling author! Make your appointment if you dare.... Darkness had come to the town. Strange things were happening in the dead of night. Children would put a tooth under their pillow for the tooth fairy, but in the morning they would wake up to find... a dead slug; a live spider; hundreds of earwigs creeping and crawling beneath their pillow. Evil was at work. But who or what was behind it...? Listen to this book and find out!
