David Tennant has a way of making a book come alive, so he is the perfect choice for a book about a car coming alive! He narrates this classic well and I enjoyed it very much.

I have seen the film many times, but I had no idea how different the book is! It is much more full of adventure and daring than the film (which is more of a romance), and though it certainly reflects the time in which it was written, the story itself carries a wonderful timelessness.
