This is an ADULT fairytale

Overall
4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 01-25-08

This book was listed in the top ten downloads for the kids and young adult section. Many people had recommended the movie so I downloaded the book for my kids who are 9 and 11. In the first hour of the narration there is a complete sex scene including gasping, writhing and slipperiness. I am not a prude but this book is not appropriate for this age group so please be aware. I personally think that there should be some sort of warning on Audible about adult content when a book is listed in the children's section.
I agree with other reviews that this is a beautifully written book. The prose carries you off into a magical dream and I am amazed by the excellence of the author's narration. However, I will be listening to it when my kids are not in the car.
