Publisher's Summary

"The Little Prince" was published in 1943 by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. It is a poetic tale in which a pilot strands in the desert and meets a young prince fallen to Earth from a tiny asteroid. The story is philosophical and includes social criticism, remarking on the strangeness of the adult world. While it looks like a children's book, it targets adult relationships with deep thoughts on how adults perceive life and each other. "Children should show great understanding towards grown-ups".

Get ready for a trip to see the world differently and learn what is really important. "The Little Prince" is one of the most-translated books in the world and was voted the best book of the 20th century in France. Translated into 300 languages and dialects (as well as Braille), selling nearly two million copies annually with sales totaling over 140 million copies worldwide, it has become one of the best-selling books ever published.

Lovely book, terrible narrator

Alexander Fink has no business narrating books in English. I've never read The Little Prince, so it's unfortunate that this narrator was my first experience with the book. His very strong accent makes it difficult to understand, he has no pacing whatsoever (doesn't even pause a beat when announcing new chapters), and he made several mistakes where he repeated sentences two or three times and didn't bother to edit that out. The story was sweet, but this narrator ruined the experience for me.

dissapointing

What would have made The Little Prince better?

This is one of my all-time favorite books. The narration would have been better done if it was read by Stephen Hawking. There was absolutely no attempt to get the story across, just a very dry reading of the words.

Would you be willing to try another one of Alexander Fink’s performances?

Absolutely not

terrible production quality

Amazon's quality control should not even allow this production to be sold on Audible. Poorly produced, rushed pace, repeated lines. At one point, the reader stops mid-sentence and starts all over again. We hear the whole thing. Poor editing. If you're a fan of the story, or wanting to experience it for the first time, I recommend you look elsewhere!

Waste of time bad audio reading

Difficult to connect with due to person reading the book for the audio. He fumbled with the words and had a difficult time with connecting with the emotions of the book. Left me somewhat confused as to what this book is really about. This is a disappointment and not worth listening to.

Find another version

This was read by someone who appears to be German. Between the English translation and his accent, he seemed to be reading with no attempt to dramatize or emphasize the story. I missed parts of the story because of his lack of inflection

Classic story with great message.

Thanks performance of this audiobook is really what stood out to me. Sometimes the accent was hard to understand but overall I really enjoyed the story. It's a short story but ends with a great message about The Little Prince. Would definitely recommend.

Great, meaningful story

I love the story and it's deep meaning. It's a classic, akin to Aesop's Fables. The reading is very crisp and clear, but the reader is clearly German and mispronounces many English words.

An essential book in any library

“The essential is invisible to the eye”. Every time that I read (or listen to) this statement I feel like flying. One of my favorite books, highly recommended in a very good perdormance.
