Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jim Dale

Fantasy • 5.5. hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

This delightful fantasy contains all the components of a traditional fairy tale, but Malzieu's rich, often sexual, imagery carries it to a much more adult level. The celebrated Jim Dale is an inspired choice to present this quirky take on a timeless love story. His lovely English accent, gift for creating voices, and mastery of pace and intensity make this performance a real treat. Dale is perhaps best known for his delivery of children's books and classics such as the HARRY POTTER series and ALICE'S ADVENTURES in WONDERLAND. (For ALICE, he says, he enjoyed creating “over-the-top character voices.”) Here Dale’s skills will enthrall adult listeners as they enjoy the magic of Malzieu's enticing tale. M.O.B.
