Summary

The Thirteen Clocks is James Thurber's enduring story of life in a castle where time stands still on every clock at 10 minutes to five. The Duke of the castle ignores time and pays no attention to temperature either. He is a wicked Duke who has hands cold enough to choke a bull. The only warmth he understands is the warm hands of Princess Saralinda, his fair niece, whom he cherishes and protects from suitors. In a comic and poetic way, this story makes us all want to love a Princess and to be a Prince. What's more, we want the 13 castle clocks to whir and tick and tell us that the time is NOW.

Mad and inventive

Epic tale told in dramatic and comic style. Great narration. Clever fairy tale. Well worth buying.

Infuriating background music

A good book completely ruined by loud, tedious and completely inappropriate music throughout the whole story.

As a Fairy Tale Should Be

James Thurber is, of course, delightful, and Edward Woodard is an absolute Wonder.
