Great Story

(5 Sterne)

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 Sterne)

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.

I had to read this for school and I wasn't very excited to read it.But it was actually fun to read!!

A magical, engaging tale WOW ( it was meant to be five stars but It didn’t let…

I love the creative genius of the author! The story’s simplicity makes it great because the words are so artfully cherry-picked that I can vividly imagine Princess Irene’s world. As an ( amateur) writer myself, I find the clear, engaging plot structure helpful when it comes to structuring my own stories. This story is truly magical and unique. I applaud George MacDonald’s wonderful work and see him as equal to the great English literary masters- Dickens, Shakespeare, Austen, Wilde and Steinbeck. I recommend this book to CREATIVE PEOPLE, WRITERS, FANTASY-LOVERS, AND ANYONE WHO APPRECIATES TRADITIONAL STORIES.

A wonderful story. Its always been one of my favourites.

'Slow Burn' But Quaint and Whimsical

(4 Sterne)

Reader did well in audio clarity and articulation. Story itself has quite a slow build up, but is needed to best deliver the more adventurous and action-oriented chapters later. Definitely reminiscent of JRR Tolkiens storytelling approach, taking the listener back to having stories read to them as children. It's perhaps a bit dark for young children, but I think older children - if they have the patience, would be able to enjoy as well.
