The Princess and Curdie is the sequel to The Princess and the Goblin by George MacDonald. It’s been a year since the Princess Irene and Curdie first met, and a year since the goblin incident and all appears to be going well in the Kingdom. Or is it? After a visit from Irene’s great-great-grandmother, Curdie finds himself on a mission to save the kingdom, with a rather strange companion in tow.
After listening to The Princess & the Goblin, I was looking forward to listening to this book, but unfortunately I couldn't even make it through the first chapter due to the strange way the reader speaks. Hopefully others will enjoy her reading style, but as for me, I will be reading this book instead of listening.
Great book, very poor reader. Could not finish the book because of the readers sing-song reading.
I remember reading this book as a child, and found it just as delightful this time around. Curdie continues his adventures, learning bravery, trust, and loyalty. The reader Lizzy Driver has an unusual cadence to her voice, but reads the text clearly and smoothly.
The narrator ends each sentence on a higher pitch, like she's asking a question. It's distracting and I had to stop. The book itself is great, though.
