This one has potential--huge potential--to be a classic in the genre. The premise is old, but wonderfully done. The characters are immediately lovable, even the minor ones (although the voice of Georgie is all wrong--the rest of the narration is brilliant). All are fleshed out superbly. The details of royal life are charming and enlightening. I was completely wrapped in this story--right up until THAT point. You will know it when you get there. It just seemed out of character and thrown in for no reason at a point in the story that called for a different tack. I plodded past that, disappointed, but invested enough to see how it would all turn out. I thoroughly enjoyed the overall book, despite some clunky bits here and there, and I would recommend.

I love this story I have it on kindle and paperback and I was really looking forward for the audio version.
the only way I could listen to this was to speed up the narration to X1.20. The narrator seemed incapable of any form of emotion.

Not a terrible story but the narration ... Wow. Just wow. She made everyone sound like they were slightly autistic. Completely monotone throughout. No emotion displayed even when emotion was completely necessary. Very odd to listen to and I think if I was reading this book and could hear the voices in my head I would have actually enjoyed it far more. I definitely won't be getting any more books with this narrator.
