Beyond good

(4,5 Sterne)

The perfection of the combination of a great tale with the silver tongued tones of a great bard, for the most best chapters ! For any one wanting to study narrative perfection you need only listen to a chapter being read by Lars and you will know without a doubt left over what perfection truly is in any language! I will miss his rare talent being amongst us every day !!! All my best wishes go out to his family, and to all the LibriVox world, that such a dear person has undertaken the final adventure of life!

Just okay story - good narration though

(3 Sterne)

I had a hard time rating this story. I thought it started off well, it held my interest and I was curious about what would happen. Then when the children kept traveling back and forth through time it got a bit repetitive and I lost interest. The last chapter was pretty good, but even the last chapter was hard to get through. I would say fast forward through all the mouldywarp adventures. I liked the narration it was Elizabeth Klett, Sonja and Lars Rolander all who have voices well suited to a fairy tale like story.

I'm so lost!

I'm on chapter 12 and have no idea what's going on. Please, please let volunteers who don't speak English as their native language read books in their own native language. Because so often, when people like Zanya try to read English and speak it accurately, it's as if the whole chapter might as well be missing, which makes the book unable to be read...or in this case, listened to.

I enjoyed the plot of the book, but sadly the audiobook was slightly spoiled for me by the reading of Zonya (not sure of the spelling), as I couldn't understand half of the time what she was saying ;/

Cute story

(5 Sterne)

Very cute story. It was very interesting to hear Dracula narrate the story. Their accent made the story very interesting I loved it! I wish they narrator more chapters.

Good Story

(4 Sterne)

progressing chapters are dull and their narrators are not so great. I couldn't find the sequel in librivox sadly. I prefer the sequel to the first book personally.
