Malory towers first term

This book took me back thirty-something years ago when I have first read this book translate into my own language. I was in primary school and it was the first book I was reading except tales of course. Due to blindness, I found it in audio form in the school I was studying. There was never written in braille form form. After some years the book was lost or destroyed and there was not the original. So, when I rediscovered it I was excited. I consider it an excellent book that keeps the interest of the reader. Sorry for my errors but I usually read and almost never write in English.

A gorgeous trip down memory lane!

A time before the Internet, mobile phones and social media. A lovely paced reading of a book I loved as a child that always made me wish my parents would send me to boarding school!

couldn't stop listening!

Beth Eyre's voice is soothing and just great! I have started to get into Enid Blytons works now and this audiobook was the first Enid Blyton audiobook I have got, this is definitely a great choice. Good tale with plenty of twists and turns.

Enjoyable read.

This was a quick read and I really enjoyed the audible narration of the book. The story is fairly interesting and I love me some middle grade books. I will definitely continue with the series and follow our characters' growth and the adventures that they will get into. Recommended for big and small!
