The princess and the Goblin

(4 stars)

This is an amazingly fun book!!!!! I love how the goblin's act and think of how to trap the little Princess and Curdie. Everyone should read this fun , scary and really good story.

good ? not for little little ones

(5 stars)

honestly one of my favourite stories. it creeped me out at Times and was a little suspenseful. wouldn't recommend for young kids though! its a little dark!

Great Story

(5 stars)

I really enjoyed listening to the reader. Loved her accent. Seemed appropriate for this story. The story, although at times seeming to be very simple in writing style, was very suspenseful and enjoyable. I can see how greats such as C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien were inspired by George MacDonald's stories.

Good book & Read

(5 stars)

I found this to be a good book with an good reader. I am glade I could listen to both. I can see the threads of influence on Lewis and Tolkien. Hope that my future readers can say the same of me and my books.
