The patron saint of audiobooks must surely have been watching over this production. It's got colorful, carefully crafted characters, a cinematic story - a British youth, obsessed with saints, finds a cash bonanza - and a dazzling read by Simon Jones. Boyce's story operates as a clever mystery, a parable about greed, a lesson in recovery from loss, and an example of a book about children that works for all ages. Narrator Jones's strongest gift isn't his array of British accents (which he does effortlessly) or his timing (which is impeccable); it is his empathy - an uncanny ability to put the listener inside the mind of a spiritually conflicted child. If you're wondering what separates the good from the great in audiobook narration listen to Simon Jones.
A funny, brilliantly clever and utterly thrilling debut novel that is, quite simply, unforgettable.
"There's plenty of excitement as the deadline approaches and the brothers' secret becomes known, but the humor, the strong family story, and Damian's narrative voice make this satisfying novel succeed on several levels." (School Library Journal)
"A dazzling read by Simon Jones.... If you're wondering what separates the good from the great in audiobook narration - check out this Golden Voice." (AudioFile)

Millions is a delight!
I love this delightful little story about Anthony and Damien. Two young brothers with very different personalities and an unexpected adventure ahead of them. And the story is told by Damien who has Catholic Saints visit and befriend him. I’ve listened more than once. And the movie is great too.
Every kids fantasy come true...
What would you do if you had money that you had to spend? Not a problem most of us ever experience. It was great fun to follow along as the boys in the story try and manage with this unexpected windfall and all the complexities that having money can bring. Good for a family listen.
