The Well at the World's End is thought to be one of the first examples of an entirely fictional fantasy world, and has greatly influenced later fantasy writers such as C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. The book follows the travels of Ralph, a prince of a tiny country, as he disobeys his fathers wishes and runs away from home to adventure in the world, and seek out the fabled Well at World's End, said to grant eternal youth to those who drink from it.

well read, but I wish the reader had pronounced some of the words correctly. Yea is pronounced yay and not yee and it took me a bit to figure out what she was saying. there were a couple of other words it sounded strange as well, and I ended up downloading a written copy of the book so I could get straight what she was saying. except for that, though, I liked her voice and her accent and the reading was well done. I believe I read this book before, years ago, and it was nice to revisit it and have it read to me.

Five stars to the reader

(3 Sterne)

I would give the reader five stars. The subject and old English was too hard for me to get into. Again, the reader was spot on and has a great voice.

Awesome reading!
