The reading style of the narrator made listening to this informative book really easy. I will definitely look out for other books read by Paul Costanzo.

Puffin presents the new, unabridged audiobook edition of Roald Dahl's best-selling autobiography Boy, read by Dan Stevens from Downton Abbey. Throughout his young days at school and just afterwards, a number of things happened to Roald Dahl, which made such a tremendous impression he never forgot them. Boy is the remarkable story of Roald Dahl's childhood; tales of exciting and strange things - some funny, some frightening, all true.

I had forgotten what a fantastic writer John Grisham is. The reading made this story so enthralling that I could not stop listening. Started listening yesterday evening and only paused to sleep and eat. I've always read the books but now I can wait to listen to the next one.
