Publisher's Summary

A charming but ineffective prince takes the road less travelled after a hunt, setting in motion events that result in him losing his wife and his kingdom of Grunewald in under a week. The plot is thick with disreputable characters (even the prince) as well as court intrigue, treachery, and deceit...but in the hands of master storyteller Robert Louis Stevenson, these larger-than-life characters are delightful, and the almost-serious events become part of a lighthearted and sweet fairy tale complete with a happy ending. Part gentle satire and part love story, Prince Otto is a tale told in the classic tradition for listeners of any era.

    Story
    "A classic by a master brought to life on Audio!"

    Otto is prince of a little principality in the old German empire. He also has no real interest in doing the job, being more content to Hunt. This leaves the ruling to his scheming young wife and his even more scheming Prime Minister. What follows is a tale for the ages, as his kingdom must face a socialist revolution, as he has to determine what is important to him, his kingdom, his wife, or just his own neck. With intrigues a plenty, and a cast of characters that are brought to vivid life, as well as the romance in the title, this is a great story that deserves more attention than it has received. It stands up with the best of Stevensons work. As far as narration, wow! Holly Adams did a spectacular job, really bringing life, humanity, villainy and humor to the various characters in turn. She nails all the voices, from the Prince to the lowest born farmer, male and female. She needs to narrate as many books as she can, because I will get them.

    I was given a review copy of this book by the author, narrator or publisher. I am leaving an honest review in response.

    "Great story- a classic tale"

    The voices were wonderfully entertaining and served well to highlight the characters' personalities/ storylines- quite fun to hear! Definitely recommend this tale of human discovery-
