A memorable read this. There is great structure and depth and it is genuinely unnerving as a result. I have lived and worked in Prague and Sarah Perry captures the underlying darkness of the city particularly well. All of the historic settings are convincing and the whole is clearly well researched. A superb gothic novel.

Where does Jupiter's Travels rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

For me this is the best all round audio book I have heard in this genre and certainly one of the best of any genre

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ted brilliantly portrays the many varied characters he encounters

What does Ted Simon and Rupert Degas bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Rupert Degas is a superlative narrator. This one really shows what an audio book can add

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

Many times

Any additional comments?

Richly atmospheric, varied and entertaining throughout. This is a great armchair travel experience.
