Classic story, beautifully read.

The Princess and the Goblin is a classic fairy tale which can be enjoyed by children and adults alike. There are layers of meaning if you choose to see them, but its story line is straightforward. I am in my sixties and loved it, partly because of the old-fashioned but compelling story, and partly because of the talent of the reader. Laura Sauriat is a gifted narrator with a mellifluous voice who.brings each character alive with a range of easy-to-understand but fun and expressive accents. I highly recommend this recording and hope Ms Sauriat considers doing the sequel in due course.

The singing

Was a bit discombobulating. It took me out of the story,yet the way it's told it's hard to tell whether you're in or out of the story. It's written like a never-ending, compound sentence iterating over and over again, til you find yourself in the middle and then the end without realizing you were finishing a book.

Perfect voice, perfect story

English accents and Scottish accents all spoken in the most pleasing voice I’ve ever heard on audible. A great classic story perfect for the car or bedtime. Sending to all my grandchildren. Highly recommended!
