A simple story should obsess such a mysterious power, which will held you entirely in the world of dessert, stars ,flowers, happy or sad tears, friendship at a long distance between stars, loneliness and love with heavy responsibilities. The little prince said, adults were quite certainly strange. Actually the world belongs to the young, unless those grown-ups sadly forget what they truly are. Why not we start to listen to the story again , rediscovering those rare things from the view of kids?
The reading poorly matches the words used in the book; it's almost as if the intention was to paraphrase the charm of the original translation. Sadly, the audio actor uses such a disappointing voice for the little prince and the rose... I had to stop before risking a listen of his choice for the beloved fox.
I would definitely recommend this audiobook to friends. Both young and old. 😃I read the book in high school French class years ago, and loved it. ❤️It was wonderful to re-experience it as an adult who sometimes takes himself too seriously. 😉
Avid Listener of books at 1-1/2 times the normal speed. Trying to make up for all those boring high school teachers that could not reach me.
I loved this narration of a timeless story. I proposed to my wife with this book, asking her to tame me as I gave a red rose. Telling her she was the only rose for me, that was 35 years ago. Read this book listen to it often, remind yourself of the things that are truly important and don't get sidetracked with life and all it's activity.

The Little Prince is one childhood book that everyone should revisit. The touching tale of the innocence of childhood, friendship and loss is presented in a way that children can relate to, but there is so much that can be taken and learned as adults from this beautifully written story.
The audiobook edition of The Little Prince is a well narrated story and really captures the attention of the listener. Although one must research the drawings that are included in the print edition to fully understand the context of the story, the audio version is one not to be missed. In a mere two hours, you can listen to the entire book and be mesmerized by the main characters, the aviator and the Little Prince. The listener can really get a feel for the emotions and the bonds that form between the various characters in the book through Humphrey Bower’s gorgeous voice and impressive ability to make his audience feel empathy and understanding of the message in the book.
I absolutely love this book and Antoine de Saint Exupery. Every page of this book is a celebration of life, and love, it inspires stargazing and internal reflection. Definitely my favorite book...So pure so simple yet so deep ...
