I absolutely loved this story! Seems to have come straight from Heaven!
What a truly wonderful story. The narrator is clear and tells the story with such feeling.
I know this is a classic but I could barely get through it
Story was delightful but the narration was awful. No change in tone, hardly any gaps between sentences order paragraphs.
I thoroughly enjoyed this short story rather enlightening and even through the moral is straight forward it hit home and still provokes thought and reflection in this day and age
It is totally ridiculous to have an American reading Oscar Wilde! He will be turning in his grave !
Not much-not what I expected. Only listened to 5 mins. Sorry Oscar.
The story itself is a little sad in context and after the sparrow does the first good deed for the happy little prince, the next deeds are predictable. As both the sparrow and the prince give all that they have, which seems a sad ending, the redeeming virtue is that they earn a place in heaven because of the love they have for others.
I really enjoyed the story.
It was ok
Loved the story and liked the narration.
Beautiful story, beautifully narrated..
Good metaphor. Didn’t like the narration.

Incredibly sad and mind upsetting. It teaches kindness.

Nice to listen to! I enjoyed it very much.
I enjoyed it, very relaxing
It was so beautiful I really like it
It was the most wonderful writing I have ever read or heard. It is a masterpiece of shining simplicity of prose and spellbinding storytelling.
Beautiful! Absolutely beautiful!
Wonderful short story, I might try to find another narrator though. This one didn't do the story justice according to me.
Very interesting short story, little blunt at the end but narrator manages to keep you hooked and I will definitely remember this story. Swallow, swallow, little swallow! Won't you stay one night longer?
A good quick listen.
I have studied this story long ago while i was studying English literature. Happy to see this here
A timely story still today
Nice reading cute story
A real feel good book . Short and sweet
Lovely short book with excellent narration
a children's story with lots of repetition. Well read though.
Short and sweet with a happy ending.
Ugh. I once read that "sentimentality is the pornography of the intellect," with which I concur. This work, then, is the hardcore version. Sappy, drippy, yuck. Sure, the politics are to be expected (rich people bad, poor people good) and no one should mind the idea that it's commendable to do good deeds, but it's hard to see how a feeling of nausea helps one to relate.
So, why isn't this only a one-star rating? Well, two stars is my "dumb" or "dull" rating. To get one star, a work has to be actively disgusting--racist (right-wing or left-wing versions), scatalogical, insulting, anti-family, anti-rationality, etc.
The narrator was not bad, but an inexcusable mispronunciation of "Sans Souci" loses a star.
Skip this one, unless you're a Wilde completist.
This narrator was perfect. He did not overdo the characters. His natural recitation gave room for metaphors to drift in between the words and lines. Very pleasant listen.
I enjoyed listening to this Oscar Wilde story.. brought me back to the fairy tales I used to read as a kid. It was a pleasant hour or so on a sunny afternoon and a nice get away from our current news...
Great story. The narrator could be better.
I liked it it was fun.
Very poor narration, which ruined the story for me.
-not enough variation in tone, no attempt to make the voices different, stresses were often in the wrong places and sentences were often almost run into each other. I also was very irritated by having an American voice reading a very English text, but perhaps that was just a personal prejudice. I would so much rather have been reading it, so it was not the relaxing enjoyable experience I had hoped for.
Thought it was a beautiful story,and narrated very well.*****
Short and sweet
An enjoyable story, well read by the narrator
It is a lovely and poignant story that is read well. This is a book that should be read as well as heard.
It is quite poetic and visual. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
I thoroughly enjoyed my 1st hearing of this story listening through my headphones & was in fact, a little tearful at the end!
Great story, took a few minutes to settle into the narration, but glad I stuck with it.
At first I thought it was read by a computer as some of the words didn’t seem to read at the right pace but then it even out & I was able to enjoy it.
Excellent, especially as it was free. Thank you very much.
Book quite interesting, but narration very labored - might just have been suitable for a child.
