I read this two years ago at the recommendation of my son. Loved it. Now I have listened to it on Audible as it is my local book club's selection for this month. With so many adventurous events and characters, I had already forgotten much of the story. I think I finally have all four countries of Oz in order. Very much enjoyed this audio version with narration by Anne Hathaway. She does a great job with the story and different voices, with the exception (my opinion!) of the Wizard. But that's a minor complaint. I would recommend this audio version to anyone wondering which to choose.
