No regrets.

It is an interesting tale and the language is wonderfully fantastical but it's not really my style, I just sought it out because it is a classic that is frequently cited. I'm glad I know it now but probably won't listen again.

One of the best!

Love this story! An excellent classic but also so well read it made the book outstanding. Mr Cazenove uses very distinctive voices for the various characters and gives them English accents. It works perfectly! Love the accent he gives to Sancho. It was easy to tell the voices apart and entertaining.
