    I love the book. The narrator has a great voice. I still do not like the interruption between chapters.

    A nice book, very queer book. Though I am a boy I still like A Little Princess by Francis Hogson Bernet.

    I read this book as a child and I have always remembered it. I love the story! The narrator was not good though, a great pity!

  • Christine G.

    I enjoyed this book immensely, and the narrator did a fine job!

  • Anonymous

    really good choice on the narrator

  • Ruth P

    My 9-year-old granddaughter and I listened to this recording together, and loved it. We liked the chapter divisions because we could stop and talk about what was going on, and decide whether to go on or not. We chose this narrator over several others, and think she did a fine job. I had tried to read the book aloud myself but the Yorkshire accent was very difficult. The audio was a big relief!

    I very much enjoyed this book! The narrator did a good job. Only a few times you could hear background noises. Overall great story and great reader!

  • Rachel Oliver

    I love the book and loved the narrator too, that is saying something with the free books as often the narration is very average.

  • Jennifer Ferguson

    Enjoyable listen. The narration of so many free books is very bad. They miss any variation in tone and emotion. This one is better than most, odd at times that it sounds like she is reading it at a cafe.

    I so enjoyed listening this book. The narrator is sweet and has a way with the dialect. I also liked that the chapter interruptions were shorter than usual. Much nicer to hear.
