(5 stars)

Excellent morals and very well written

Worth a listen if you have the patience

(3 stars)

Story: I like George MacDonald, but this book was fairly dull. It didn't get very interesting until part three, but there were several elements from parts one and two that set up part three nicely. Overall, a good book with lots of moral lessons throughout. Narration: This is the most frustrating part of the book. It's not that I think the narrator is bad although his reading is very monotonous; he's a volunteer, and I have heard worse, after all. My main complaint is that the audio quality is poor. It's quiet and often muffled with occasional background noises, all of which had me skipping back trying to catch things I missed the first time. Overall, it's a book that I'm glad I listened to, and if you have the patience to listen to a less-than-stellar recording then give it a try.

(5 stars)

The more of George McDonald I read, the more I am convinced that writing has mirrored the moral decline that society has taken since this great author's death.
