Ella Enchanted

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Gail Carson Levine

Narrated By: Eden Riegel

Publisher: Listening Library (Audio)

Duration: 5 hours 42 minutes


That fool of a fairy Lucinda did not intend to lay a curse on me. She meant to bestow a gift. When I cried inconsolably through my first hour of life, my tears were her inspiration. Shaking her head sympathetically at Mother, the fairy touched my nose. "My gift is obedience. Ella will always be obedient. Now stop crying, child." I stopped.

So begins this richly entertaining story of Ella of Frell, who wants nothing more than to be free of Lucinda's gift and feel that she belongs to herself. For how can she truly belong to herself if she knows that at any time, anyone can order her to hop on one foot, cut off her hand, or betray her kingdom--and she'll have to obey?

Against a bold tapestry of princes, ogres, giants, wicked stepsisters, and fairy godmothers, Ella's spirited account of her quest to break the curse is a funny, poignant, and enchanting tale about an unforgettable heroine who is determined to be herself.

    Beautiful story! I adored this book so much. Definitely not just for children! It's clever and the characters are great. The narrator was good too, the voices she did fit the characters really well. Glad I picked this up, I highly recommend it!
