Taran Wanderer: The Prydain Chronicles, Book 4

Taran, the assistant pig-keeper who wants to be a hero, goes questing for knowledge of his parentage, hoping that his journey will ennoble him in the eyes of Eilonwy, the princess with the red-gold hair.

What the Critics Say

"James Langton's narration is outstanding. The earnestness of Taran in both joy and anguish, as well the liveliness of the supporting characters, is memorable." (AudioFile)

    Story
    "Harry Potter, Percy Jackson Fans This Is For You!"

    I highly recommend all the Chronicles of Prydain and Taran Wanderer in particular. If you love great adventures, well drawn lovable characters, and profound life lessons, you will love Taran Wanderer. Lloyd Alexander creates the world of Prydain loosely based on Welsh mythology. This is the 4th book in the Chronicles of Prydain, and I recommend reading them in order. The last chapter is wonderful. We listened to it several times. LOVE the advice given to Taran: "trust to luck, but don't forget to put out your nets." Excellent! For those who have listened to Harry Potter, James Langton does as good a job as Jim Dale. It was wonderful to listen to him bring Taran and his friends to life. This is a book written for younger readers (middle school and late elementary) but high schoolers and adults will take much from it also. Do yourself a favor--read these books!

    "These Books are classics!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Taran Wanderer to be better than the print version?

    Not sure. I loved both. And this audio addition is very well done


    What did you like best about this story?

    Characters .... nobel characters


    Which character – as performed by James Langton – was your favorite?

    Couldn't tell you .... he was excellent at all of them


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    From one part to the next the whole thing is well developed. The challenges are realistic, and the characters are all pushed to develop themselves

    "Taran Wanderer"

    I really like this series! The only problem, though, and I mean the ONLY one, is the fact that the behavior of the characters isn't necessarily realistic.
