Inhaltsangabe

The thrilling international bestseller from Holland, now a Netflix Original Series.

It is the dead of night. Sixteen-year-old Tiuri must spend hours locked in a chapel in silent contemplation if he is to be knighted the next day. But as he waits by the light of a flickering candle, he hears a knock at the door and a voice desperately asking for help.

A secret letter must be delivered to King Unauwen across the Great Mountains - a letter upon which the fate of the entire kingdom depends. Tiuri has a vital role to play, one that might cost him his knighthood. 

Tiuri's journey will take him through dark, menacing forests, across treacherous rivers, to sinister castles and strange cities. He will encounter evil enemies who would kill to get the letter but also the best of friends in the most unexpected places.

He must trust no one. He must keep his true identity secret. Above all, he must never reveal what is in the letter...

The Letter for the King is the epic story of one boy's battle against evil, set in an enchanted world of chivalry, courage, and true friendship.

Wonderful

I watched the Netflix series the other day, and I enjoyed it. I went in search of the book, and found to my delight, that it is available as audiobook.
I didn't really expect the film to be exactly like the book, but I didn't expect it to be a completely different story. The film isn't even based on the book -- they only took the title and a few names, and wrote a whole new story for the series. However, I don't mind for once. I loved the book just as much as I loved the series. Matt Addis did a great job with the narration, and I have just bought the sequel now. Mind you, this is young adult stuff, so I guess not every adult will enjoy it, as the story is fairly simple (e.g. the villains always look ugly, and the knights and noblemen look wise and handsome, etc,) but I loved it nevertheless.

Amazing

The journey of Tiuri the squire is one of my fondest memories from my youth. The audiobook truly captures the magic of a young man following the path honor has brought him onto. Even more special this is the kind of story that stands up to scrutiny years after, and I can only recommend you to listen to this book.

If you came here from the Netflix series be prepared to truly enjoy and find out what Tonke Dragt actually intended and also to be amazed and excited and frightened and in love with one of the best low fantasy stories I know.

A wonderful story told by an amazing speaker

I used this audiobook just to improve my english skills.
But doing so I began to realy love the story.
Although I am grown up I really enjoyed the exciting and authentic adventures of the young knight Tiuri.
The speaker is also completely perfect.
His voice is very pleasant and he gives every character a specific tone that you can recognize easily.
But nevertheless each character sounds situable and not exaggerated.
Thank you so much for this marvellous audiobook!

A book to read again and again...

The first time I read The Letter for the King by Tonke Dragt and its sequel I was a teenager and that was over 30 years ago and since then I have reread it many times. It's a story about adventure, secrets, friendship, rivalry, a fight against evil in a medieval setting with legendary kingdoms and knights...
I love this unabridged audio version and Matt Addis does a great job to bring the wonderful story and its characters to life!

I recommend this book for children 10+ and adults alike.

Now I cannot wait to continue to listen to the story of Tiuri and Piak in the sequel The Secrets of the Wild Wood!

One of my preferred books since childhood

Tiuri‘s adventures, after running away from the chapel in the night before being knighted by the king, are still one of my preferred books - 40 years after I have read them for the first time. Find out for yourself - tales of knights and squires, honour and betrayal, fights and intrigues, friendship and happiness.

A great narrator makes this audiobook a particularly exciting experience!
