The Princess and the Goblin af George MacDonald (1872)

    The Spindlers af Lauren Oliver (Inky_Fingers)
    Inky_Fingers: There might be more than a hundred years separating these two books, but I kept thinking of The Princess and the Goblin as I was reading The Spindlers. There is a bit of plot similarity with both girls lost in a magical underground world, but there are also similarities in the beauty of the language and in taking abstract concepts like dreams and giving them solid form.… (mere)

The plot itself was something I really enjoyed - a really cute story. What totally dragged this book down for me, though, was the narration. The way it was told was somewhat disjointed and got on my nerves when he would reference something and then say "but I'll get to that later" or "that really doesn't matter." It was like when a friend says they know something juicy and then they refuse to tell. So that unfortunately leaves me with some sour feelings about the book. If you can get past that, though, it is actually fairly decent. ( )

Here's a classic that has not aged well. I read this and at least one other in the series at my hometown library when in my early teens, and then bought a discard copy of this book from that same library a few years later. I liked it, back in the day.

This time around, I still enjoyed the very fairy tale-like voice. The illustrations in this 1951 edition are lovely, too. But the story itself? The characters? Oof.

Princess Irene is supposed to be 8 years old, but reads more like she is 4 or 5. She does absolutely nothing for herself in this book, not even dress herself. All of her actions are essentially dictated by her ethereal ancestress who lives in a hidden part of the castle. The goblins are nasty beings who live in the mountain beneath the castle. They lack all nuance, and nothing about them makes any sense. Then there is Curdie, the young miner who is smarter than everyone in the book except for the ethereal grandmother. He's the one who discovers that the goblins are up to mischief, and he is the closest thing the book has to an active hero.

I feel somewhat sad that the book ended up being such a disappointing re-read, but I also feel fine getting rid of the book now. Goodness knows, I can use the shelf room. ( )

When I was 100 pages in, my wife and I started reading it aloud to each other. She ended up getting sick that night, and we finished the whole book the following day as she rested and recovered. We were both glued to the book as the action started, and we really enjoyed hearing what happened next to the Princess and to Curdie.

George MacDonald is a delightful storyteller, with the same types of insights that mark C. S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia--it is no wonder that Lewis regarded MacDonald as "his master." ( )

A writing style I'm neutral on, but a most excellent story and spirit. ( )

read aloud, but couldn't finish. My kid finished reading it alone.
