A story I totally missed in my 70-year life, but a sweet little tale with a quirky mix of childish fantasy and adult concerns.

This book was an enjoyable, sweet read. I laughed out loud a few times at the unexpectedly wry humor. The ending made me cry, but it was bittersweet more than incredibly sad. The narrator had a deep, rich voice; it was like listening to a grandfather telling a bedtime story. He tells the story nice and slow, and I could hear the emotions in it.
My mother and I both enjoyed this story on a long trip back from the doctor during rush hour traffic. I would recommend it to almost anyone looking for a funny, gentle story. However, I do feel compelled to mention that when I was a child, this story would have been much too slow for me. I wouldn't have had the patience for it. It's a family-friendly story, but I wouldn't actually make small children sit through it.

Every adult that thinks that they're super-grown-up should listen to this book, especially those that think that it's a book for kids that they would never ever read.
Meet The King, The Important Man who is more like a mushroom, the sheep in a box, The Vain Rose, The Drunkard, our protagonist and of course The Little Prince, who once he has hold of a question, will never be fobbed off with an unsatisfactory answer or lie.
Arguably a manual on how not to take oneself so seriously. Yet profoundly funny and moving. Lovely.

Everyone should read this book, it reminds you about your inner child, about the simple things in life, the things we see everyday but do not notice, about life and death.

One of my all time favorite books. I enjoyed the story and the narration was great. The only thing I missed were the illustrations that are so poignant in the written book.

The Little Prince is written and read with pure artistry. This audiobook will delight adults and kids alike for the tone is engaging and delights your imagination. I listen to this audiobook if i am in need to remind myself to smile. It's message will touch many hearts and it certainly inspires me to live with my love, passion, joy, and sincerity. I hope other listeners get as much out of it as i did.
