Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Brooke Heldman

Classics • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1872

An enchanting and enthusiastic performance by Brooke Heldman reveals the magical world of this classic. As a miner’s boy helps Princess Irene escape from threatening goblins, Heldman’s buttery voice and gentle lilt create a bedtime-story quality in her narration. She skillfully captures the surprising and suspenseful moments with speedier pacing or drawn-out words. Her range of vocalizations brings out the youth and charm of the princess while also highlighting the darkness of the goblins without being too frightening. Crystal-clear audio quality, in addition to Heldman’s crisp articulation, adds to the allure of this timeless tale. M.F.
