A unicorn, a haphazard wizard, and a spunky scullery woman journey to the dreaded kingdom of Haggaard, an evil ruler who, with the help of a bull-shaped demon, imprisons all the unicorns of the world.

This is an unabridged audiobook of Peter S. Beagle's classic fantasy novel, read by the author, and featuring original music by Jeff Slingluff. It was engineered at MondoMedia Studios in San Francisco by Jim Lively, and produced by Connor Cochran and Jim Lively.

The Last Unicorn is one of the great fantasy novels of the 20th Century. Since its publication in 1968 it has never been out of print, with six million-plus copies sold around the world, and it has been translated into more than 20 languages. The animated movie version, released in 1982, has been seen by hundreds of millions of people, and after 25 years is still showing regularly on cable and satellite television in more than a dozen countries.

Listener Opinions

    " I loved the beautiful prose, which had an air of wisdom and soothing gentility. Very fluid and soft. But there were several little bits of the book I didn't understand, and I was left feeling as if I had missed some beautiful bit of wisdom meant for me. I don't know whether I just needed to read the story as part of a book club so we could discuss it or whether the author really needed to explain things better. I may still try some of his other books for the beauty of his writing, even if I don't understand everything in them. "

    " I watched the movie probably one hundred times growing up as It was a favourite. The books was just as good however it was almost like watching the movie in my head because I am so familiar with it and there wasn't much else to it that didn't make it to the movie. So I am not sure if I loved it for the actual book or for the memories of watching it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chloe | 1/30/2014

    " This book is kinda weird but It's a hella of a lot better then the movie (unless u like triple boobied ugly harpies). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maladjester | 1/27/2014

    " This is an excellent book. To appreciate the story fully you must also see the animated feature. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicholas Mariner | 1/15/2014

    " I'm not sure if I can say good enough things about this book. I feel a little speechless. As close to perfection in fantasy/fairy tale as I have ever seen. So, so, so, so wonderful. Instant favorite. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Littlewolf | 12/31/2013

    " Simple, compelling, and fantastically written. Sad but oh so beautiful story "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vickie Jansen | 12/31/2013

    " Grew up watching the movie (gone through 4 copies of it) and was amazed at how beautifully it was adapted from the book when I finally got around to reading it. I plan to have the quote about heroes tattooed somewhere on my body. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian Bergstrom | 12/25/2013

    " I don't care about the title or the cover. This is not a girly book. I have loved this novel since I was a child. I can't tell you how many times I've read it. VERY good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandy | 12/12/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marc | 12/3/2013

    " Mr. Beagle is a master of metaphor! This is one of the loveliest books I've ever read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Autumn | 7/3/2013

    " I'd give it a 3.5 if possible. It was...just a bit much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sydney | 10/3/2012

    " I think Peter s. beagle did a master piece because it so prices that is how good book is to me. This book is one of the best book to read to a child with a active mind. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emma Ring | 9/1/2012

    " Remarkable. It's like food for your imagination. Beautiful and magical and perfect. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sam Murphy | 7/30/2012

    " I thought that this was truly a beautiful novel. It was full of adventure, and /meaning/ - although it's hard to pinpoint what, exactly...it was the kind of book that you think about days afterwards. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Finch | 7/19/2012

    " Touching and memorable mythic fantasy with clever hints of childhood imagination and shadows of darker themes that almost come to fruition... but not quite. Damned close to excellent, and a must read for anyone who thinks of themselves as a fantasy reader. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Shtinks | 3/31/2012

    " Unicorns are my favorite animal "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alanda | 3/20/2012

    " i found it a bit pretentious,,,, and would only recomend it to a younger advanced reader,,, "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zena V. | 9/14/2011

    " I'm re-reading one of my favourite children's stories ever, too. I think anyone with even a slight inclination towards things that are of the fantastic, strange, or lonely should read this. It's not a story that has an age, it grows with you, if you've ever known these things. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pylgrym | 5/15/2011

    " Absolute perfection. No fantasy has ever been so deep, so romantic, and so fantastical. All in one heavenly volume. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sarah | 5/8/2011

    " I have to admit that I was rather disappointed with this book. With reviews that ranked the author with Tolkien, I couldn't wait to read it. I didn't think it came anywhere close. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Starry | 4/19/2011

    " A journey eloquently written for those who can relate to searching for their own kind and the experiences of life, love, and loss along the way. I'll always believe in the truth of unicorns. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/15/2011

    " Ooooooh, how I love this book. It's prose is more beautiful than a lot of poetry I've read, but it's not so flowery that you lose the thread of the story. My favorite quotations come from this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 4/15/2011

    " Great imagery! Spellbinding use of language! This is a unique fairytale. Mature readers would enjoy the fullest reading experience. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremiah | 4/10/2011

    " Not so much my cup of tea story wise, but AMAZINGLY written. True poetry, and the author's use of descriptions and metaphor are unbelievable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anastasia | 4/5/2011

    " Wow!! I had forgotten about this book.....I remember I was very young and I had borrowed it from one of my cousins....I told my mother I was sick and skipped school in order to read it!!! What a way to enter the world of fiction.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlene | 3/29/2011

    " So I grew up watching The Last Unicorn movie over and over and over.... I finally read the book as an adult and loved every second of it. I actually got to dive deeper into the story and the characters than the movie ever allowed. It was so good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 3/24/2011

    " I think it's OK to say I like the film better since it's such a childhood film and he did write the screenplay. It is a great story, beautifully written and adds more backstory to the film. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lorena | 3/20/2011

    " Fantastico, el señor Beagle hace un uso de las palabras excelente y de verdad que logra meternos en su mundo y sentirnos en la aventura con los personajes. Es una novela que describiría como poética. Lo recomiendo ampliamente, tanto como si vieron la película o no. "
