The moral of the story here for me is read the summary properly instead of downloading based on the title! That said it was a very compelling story about this guy and what happened to him in his life. I googled jasonghostman afterwards and it looks like he’s still in business. What a resilient fella!

The last chapter is an interview with Charles Chiltern who wrote it. I was particularly moved by his account of the poor First World War wounded soldiers who worked at the BBC at the time.

Overall I love this series it's a true classic!

A truly heart breaking yet informative account of this battle. Well narrated and the personal accounts of survivors make you realise that men just like you and I fought and died in a very real war. Lest we forget.

A perfect performance that brought a tear to my eye

A truly classic story, read perfectly.

So endearing and moving.

It perfectly captures a forgotten time with true sentimentality.

What made the experience of listening to The Hobbit, Part 1 the most enjoyable?

It's not often that the narrator fits the book like a glove, but Rob Inglis is just amazing and really brings this children's classic to life.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Of course the main character is Bilbo Baggins and perhaps it's because I know this book inside and out, but he feels like an old friend you've not seen in years and have gone to visit.

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

No this is the only book I've heard Rob narrate, but he has the qualities of Oliver Postgate of Ivory the Engine and Noggin the Nogg fame.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book endears itself to you and I often 'revisit' it to escape the harshness of the 21st century.

Any additional comments?

A true classic that every child and adult should read!

An All Time Classic!

Listened to this several times now. It’s great!

Of course the author is famous for Sherlock Holmes, but this is a fantastic novel from the same man.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is the best version of the Beatrix Potter stories I have heard since I was a child 30+ years ago when my favourite record was an album of some of the stories.

What did you like best about this story?

The Beatrix Potter stories are timeless children's classics.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

The narrators chosen for this audio presentation of the Beatrix Potter Stories truly bring the characters to life!

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

Throw away the Xbox. Bin the Playstation. Fire your children's imagination with an audio book.

A great version of this classic.

Not sure if it would be easier to read than listen to as it is in old English/Anglo Saxon English.

Nevertheless one of the hundred titles to read before you die.
