Gripping. Beautifully read. Enchanting.

A regency treat. An intoxicating reading by the narrator too. I wasn’t familiar with this story, so a really nice find.

Where does 99 Red Balloons rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Production value 10/10 - content 5/10. Excellent performances from the actors - whom held my attention throughout, despite the story being predictable and laboured. Such a shame, as it's often the other way around - the texts are often great, but the narration tiresome and flat. If this production company had a better text to deal with, with the same directors, crew and actors, it would easily be in my top 10.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Yes. FAR too much exposition. It needed filleting, heavily.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

The character/actor playing Stephanie was my highlight. Dreamy, intimate and quite hypnotic at points - but I thought they were all great.
