My sister and I listened to it while doing dishes and other things, but sometimes I wanted to pause it or rewind it to make sure I caught everything. It obviously must have been edited quite a bit from the lengthy classic book (which I haven't read).
The music and sound effects are perfect for the story. Though a sad story in many ways, there were enough joyful and touching moments (even a few of humor) that it is easy to listen to. It is a story of grace and forgiveness. Though Catholic in background, the story does not focus on that, though a priest is of course one of the characters. The subject matter is a bit more mature than some stories, but there is no swearing that I heard or overtly graphic things. All in all very enjoyable.
Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this audio, and has not required that I post a positive review.
