Artemis Fowl Highly Recommended
During our holiday driving we've been listening to the Artemis Fowl audio tapes read by Nathaneil Parker (complete and unabridged recorded on 6 cassette tapes - 7 hours). The story is superb and the reading is excellent. Very hard to navigate when listening to such a good story - you don't really care about arriving at your destination; you just want to hear what happens next! It's aimed at older kids but it's great for parents too. I highly recommend this recording and both Jenny and I can't wait until the kids go to bed tonight so we can listen to the last tape! You can buy it from Amazon; either buy the book or make sure you get the audiobook by Nathaneil Parker and not someone else. By the way, it's somewhat darker and more aggressive than something like Harry Potter. Read the reviews.
