Review: The False Prince – Jennifer A.Nielsen

NARRATOR: Charlie McWade
FORMAT: 7 CDs, Unabridged

In a discontent kingdom, civil war is brewing. To unify the divided people, Conner, a nobleman of the court, devises a cunning plan to find an impersonator of the king’s long-lost son and install him as a puppet prince. Three orphans are recruited to compete for the role, including a defiant boy named Sage. Sage knows that Conner’s motives are more than questionable, yet his life balances on a sword’s point—he must be chosen to play the prince or he will certainly be killed. But Sage’s rivals have their own agendas as well.
My thoughts:
The worst thing with an audio book is that I have no idea how to spell anything at all 0_o And with fantasy it can be tricky, but never mind that.
I liked the male narrator, he did a good job. Though why all the poor people had to sound stupid I do not know. Maybe cos they are poor. Still all in all a good voice to listen to.
The story was good too. A noble man gathers a few orphans and will make one of them king. They learn how to act and there are a few plot twists in there too.
With this being a YA book I also appreciated it not being too long 😉

    I have this on audiobook but havent' started it yet. I know what you mean about not knowing how to spell stuff, but then on the other hand, I know I would never pronounce it right either. It is that with Hearne's books which you must start right away!

    That is my only complaint with audiobooks. You have no idea how to spell anything. Lol. I'm also not fond of the fact that I can't mark passages. If I'm on my regular iPod I can buy its a pain. Oh well I still love to listen and then I can be busy with other things.

    I enjoyed this one too! Totally with you on not knowing how to spell the names. I actually looked in a hard copy when I was in the store cause I wanted to know what the country names looked like. 🙂
