This is a delightful tale of the princess Irene, her nursemaid, and a miner boy who save mankind...with the help of a fairy godmother, of sorts. I can definitely see the correlation between later fantasy stories by CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien.
I was especially drawn to Curdie, who was so steadfast and determined to save the princess at all costs, even going so far as to put himself in peril more than once. I liked how Curdie had parents who were supportive and that he could talk to about all the things he was going through and that he loved enough to listen to even when he was struggling to believe and understand what he was hearing.
The narration was fantastic, as always! Alison Larkin really has a gift for bringing classic tales to life. Her delivery is spot on and the way she is able to use subtle differences in tone or inflection to distinguish between the characters was quite good.
I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom! in exchange for an honest review.

Great voices, inflection and deep, entertaining story. Obviously not a cold read for Alison Larkin.
