Perfect for my book slump

Why did I not know the movie was based on a book? WOW!! Amazing!!
I loved the movie and I love the audiobook/book. I've been on a reading slump for a few weeks now and this was the perfect story for me. It's fast, the story is really interesting and now I wanna watch the movie again.
The narration was great. I loved Alan Munro's voice and accent, perfect for the story.
100% recommended.

Astonishing.

Truly wonderful and too short of a story. I will definitely be going back to listen to it again; cannot hel but wish that it had been longer. There is a certain charm of Fitzgerald's style, and it was read rather delightfully.

Great Story - Mediocre Narrator Performance

While I greatly enjoyed the story, the narrator's performance was lacking. His speech patterns (pauses, etc) were not natural and made it difficult for me to follow the story.
