Description

New York Times Best Seller!

Fans of dark fairy tales like The Hazel Wood and The Cruel Prince will relish this atmospheric and absorbing audiobook based on Guillermo del Toro’s critically acclaimed movie.

Oscar winning writer-director Guillermo del Toro and bestselling author Cornelia Funke have come together to transform del Toro’s hit movie Pan’s Labyrinth into an epic and dark fantasy novel for listeners of all ages, complete with haunting illustrations and enchanting short stories that flesh out the folklore of this fascinating world. 

This spellbinding tale takes listeners to a sinister, magical, and war-torn world filled with richly drawn characters like trickster fauns, murderous soldiers, child-eating monsters, courageous rebels, and a long-lost princess hoping to be reunited with her family.

A brilliant collaboration between masterful storytellers that’s not to be missed.

“Perfectly unsettling and deeply felt, this reminded me of the best kind of fairytales wherein each chapter is a jewel that, when held up to the light, reframes how we see the world around us.” (Roshani Chokshi, New York Times best-selling author of The Star-Touched Queen and Aru Shah and the End of Time)

“A fearless and moving adaption of the film, and a gorgeously written, emotional, frightening parable about the courage of young women amid the brutality of war.”  (Michael Grant, New York Times best-selling author of Gone)

Wow. The movie was beautiful, the book, genius.

Del Torro's movie was beautiful, well-acted, a cinematic masterpiece of storytelling. The book, however, goes even farther, sharing each fairy tail behind the blooming story in a way that makes every part of it so much deeper. Aside from the beautifully done weaving of an amazing magical world, the writing itself is magical and enticing. I'm adding this to my list of all-time favorites.

True To Movie

My first screenplay to book adaptation and it doesn't disappoint.
There were bits that sounded dubbed over, otherwise it'd be a 5 star rating.

Magical. Beautiful. More please.

I have loved this movie for years, but Guillermo del Toro + Cornelia Funke is pure magic. It's hard to imagine the cruelty that was endured during the Franco era of Spain but del Toro's story makes it palpably personal with one of the worst villains in story telling history. This fairytale is pure Mexican and Spanish folklorico surrealism. It's a story that feels as though it was handed down by my grandmother, leaving me always to decipher what was true and was fantasy. This audiobook might be even more magical than the movie.

Edit because I forgot to mention the narrator! Thom Rivera is SUPERB!

Incredible reading

Would highly recommend this audio book. Thom Rivera did an incredible job with the characters and voices and made the story come alive. Made a long car ride go by quickly.

Absolutely enthralling

If you loved the movie, you will love this book! It all of the tragic sadness and magic of the movie, but with so much more depth. The myths are expanded upon, and we get to learn so much more.

Once again, the book is better than the movie

Cornelia Funke has managed to weave the magic of literary fairytale into this sad story.

A HUGE Letdown

For those who have never seen this movie, you may want to disregard this review. It is a wonderful, intriguing, and horrifying story that takes you on a journey that I doubt you've read before.....

Even as I'm writing that, I'm having trouble keeping my real opinion locked away. I have a huge problem with this book, because it could've been filled with detail, more story, and description. In all honesty, though, there were a few things here and there that were not in the movie, but it's like a copy/paste of the script (except in English of course). My suggestion: go rent or buy the movie, because it is incredible and the visuals are beautiful, terrifying, and WAY better than anything you'll get from this book. Trust me! I've only said that one book and one trilogy was better (or just as good) in film version. Suzanne Collins' 'The Hunger Games' series was poorly written, so I always say that those movies were better. The film, The Hours, in my opinion, was just as good as Michael Cunningham's novel. All I'm saying is that in almost all cases, I enjoy the book far more than the film/TV show. Unfortunately, 'Pan's Labyrinth' was a waste of my time.

The book, and I'm being pretty harsh here, is getting a D- from me. As far as narration goes, I felt like he was putting on an accent. It wasn't the worst thing I've ever heard, but nothing to shout about. Thom Rivera's narration is getting a B-.
