The language used in "The Goose Girl" was really lovely, and I'm sure that reading it in print is a great experience, too. But the different voices of this narration really added to the story. Although I'm used to single narrators, I will now look for "full-cast" narrations.
This is not a story for children, in my opinion. As in the original fairy tales, death plays a part, and there are some very frightening scenes.
The magic is difficult to understand, unlike most supernatural stories these days; it's not black and white but very gray.
I highly recommend this audio book to all those who like light fantasy.

I frequently listen to books while I am working on construction projects or other tasks, so I was looking for a book that didn't have a thousand characters or an intricate plot. The Goose Girl was a good choice. It had kind of a slow start, but within a few chapters it grabs hold of you.
I liked the main character, which is so important for a book to be enjoyable. The other characters added to the tale.
The target audience category for this book is 11 - 13 year olds, so take the following criticism with a grain of salt. My reason for giving it four stars instead of five was that some of the events near the ending seemed a little far-fetched, so much so that it tended to jar me out of the story.
In summary, I enjoyed the book very much and recommend it to others.
