    1 thought on “The Lost Prince

    1. Marco is a 12 year old boy raised by his father and his father's devoted servant. They live in dingy little rented rooms that are visited by secretive gentlemen. They travel constantly, and Marco has been trained since birth to pass as a native of any of the countries in Europe. When a crisis hits, Marco needs all of his training and devotion to his father.This is a romantic tale, not in the sense of love but in the sense that it's a fantasy of how European feudalism works, a bit like The Prison [...]

    2. Okay, so this book is in many respects mediocre and completely obvious, but it is a hilariously good time.(Possibly it is only so hilarious because it is obvious to everyone except the titular lost prince who he is.)Marco Loristan and his father are exiled citizens of the fictional European country of Samavia, currently living in London. Samavia has been undergoing civil war since the disappearance of their rightful king hundreds of years ago. (If you have not correctly guessed the identity of t [...]

    3. An excellent read, though maybe a little clean and tidy by modern standards. For once Burnett has given her protagonist a loving parent, if perhaps a little too good to be true. The elements of Eastern religion are woven into the story in an interesting way, and it's nice to see a story focused on non-white non-Western characters (Marco and his father Stefan are from the fictional East European country of Samavia, which was small but happy and prosperous until it fell into civil war). I suspect [...]

    4. This is a solid gold book by the genius who wrote the Secret Garden.It features:a 12 year old military geniusa quest, with crutchesa noble honest and true prince and his faithful snarky smart companionsomeone nicknamed The Rat who is a dreamboat and a military genius! oh no, I see I've made a fatal mistake, all is discovered, look, don't arrest me, I was much younger when I first read it.

    5. Thanks to Librivox and Susan Umpleby, the reader, for this audiobook version of a classic. I bought a copy of the (abridged) paperback edition and read it several years ago. Librivox has recorded the complete, uncut edition which includes a great deal more philosophy and mysticism than the paperback. I usually hate abridged editions, but this time I think they were onto a good thing. Burnett was a follower of Christian Science (which is neither Christian, nor science, as is often the way of such [...]

    6. This was a beautiful and powerful book. This book has earned a place of honor on my bookshelves. I want all my children to read it! It is a classic of the first class! This book is heavy duty on the reading and vocabulary, many youngters of today would have a hard time getting into it at first, but once they understand where the story is going, I bet they won't be able to put it down! So many things to learn from studying this story: What it means to be a man, the influence of a good Father on a [...]

    7. Marco Lorestan, the hero of this story, is the lesser-known brother to Mary Lennox and Sara Crewe (and I guess Little Lord Fauntleroy, which, unbelievably, I have never read). I've always wondered why so few people have heard of this book, because Burnett's other stories are so famous, and the theme, about a clever, odd, out-of-place child coming of age in trying circumstances is very similar. It might be because all the characters are male and Burnett is not an especially convincing masculine w [...]

    8. I had a feeling it would be great and I wasn't wrong. It was a very pleasant novel. I like almost everything about it: characters, places, adventures - all are very interesing.I admit that the plot is very predictable but it didn't bother me. I could easly connected with the story and characters. Young Marco is lovely. He has also this beautiful kindness, gentleness and wisdom which make him even more interesting as a child character. Also his father is a very strong character. And I felt sympat [...]

    9. This book is hardly known, and yet it to is written by the author of The Secret Garden. It was not the plot that engaged me, when I read it years ago, but how I felt for Marco and the Rat. I was in their shoes. When they were hurt, I was hurt. When they were happy, I was too. The author made me, a child, feel complete empathy for these two fictional characters. I wonder if I would love it so much now, but for me then, it was one of the best books ever written. That is why I have given it 5 stars [...]

    10. it's clean and all, but I can't get into it. And so made it 40%, which was what I was trying for. I may go back to it, but I doubt that I will

    11. When I first bought my kindle, I wanted some books on it, but I didn’t want to pay for them (since I had just spent a bunch on the kindle). I was going through the free book list on kindle, and I saw some books by one of my favorite childhood authors, Frances Hodgson Burnett. Of course, I grabbed The Secret Garden, just to have it, but I also downloaded a book of hers that I had not yet read, The Lost Prince. (It’s still available for free on kindle, by the way.) The main character, Marco, i [...]

    12. As much as I love Secret Garden and A Little Princess, the same can't be said for this novel. It is okay, but I think it stretches far too long and moves a bit too slow. Burnett, I'm afraid, did not create a convincing strong male protagonist in the form of a twelve-year-old boy, even though she did inject good characteristics that not only I'd love any children to have, but myself, too.I'd willingly reread A Little Princess and Secret Garden word by word anytime, but not The Lost Prince. The pl [...]

    13. Has not aged wellWhile I have read and loved the little princess and forgiven any classism a and imperialists because of the time it was written in , I find that the list prince does not carry enough enduring qualities to remain a book lived and still read. It is the story of a boy and later his best friend, who , along with his father want to free a small European country from a cruel despot. And science this was written before WWI the way they want to do so is to restore the rightful king to h [...]

    14. If you are a Lord Peter Wimsey fan, then you remember in HAVE HIS CARCASE when Harriet Vane settles down in the boarding house and, instead of writing her novel, reads romantic novels? This must be one of the novels she read. In which a young man, raised in the most unpromising of circumstances, nevertheless exhibits innate nobility and royalty and finally steps forward to take the throne. This plot almost cries out for parody, but in fact it's quite serious (like a similar work, GRAUSTARK). Jus [...]

    15. Perhaps my estimate of the this book is influenced by how emotionally connected I am to the characters so settle in for a bit of a story. When I first read this book it was simply because I knew to increase my vocabulary I needed to read classics as they tended to have more stimulating vocabulary that the other books in the sections of the library for my fellow 8th graders. I, being tired of finding books that bored me senseless, was rather wary of starting The Lost Prince. As I began the book I [...]

    16. One is either a fan of Burnett's or one is not. I am a fan. And while the melodrama may not be for everyone, I loved it.This book is about Marco Loristan, his father, and his friend, a street urchin called "The Rat". Marco's father, Stefan, is a Samavian patriot working to overthrow the cruel dictatorship in the kingdom of Samavia. Marco and his father come to London where Marco strikes up a friendship with a crippled street urchin known as The Rat. The friendship occurs when Marco overhears The [...]

    17. Wonderful Story I think this is a great book. I love the solemn, important feel it gave. So far, I have loved all of Francis Hodgeson Burnett's books; I love how they all focus on children. I loved the descriptions she gives of the various places. It makes me feel as if I were traveling there myself.It is true, you can pretty well guess the ending early on, but then again, the mere title of the book would make you guess, so I do not think it took away from the story, especially when Marco himsel [...]

    18. When I first discovered this book, I wondered why it wasn't as popular as some of Burnett's other works - The Secret Garden, A Little Princess, Little Lord Fauntleroy. Upon reading it, I realized it isn't quite ready for modern audiences - particularly due to her insertion of Secret-esque philosophy that preaches to the reader in several instances - but it has great potential if it could be rewritten and reworked. The disabled protagonist, daring spylike adventure and a far-off country at war gi [...]

    19. I should stop reading reviews for beautiful old children's classics like this one, because I enjoy them so much, but it seems the rest of the world is cynical. So is it predictable? Is the main character Too Good To Be Believed? Of course. But sometimes that's part of the charm. I love old books, and I wish there was more quality literature like it today.

    20. This was like a mystery adventure novel for 9 year old boys, in which there's no adventure, and the mystery is made so obvious in the first few chapters that you want to throw the book at a wall, except I listened to the audio version on my phone, and I wasn't going to throw my phone.

    21. Unexpected Spiritualist teachings from Edwardian children's author.I have such a weakness for the writing of Frances Hodgeson Burnett, her insight into the imagination of a child is always a pleasure, never anything less than sophisticated. I enjoyed this a great deal (although The Secret Garden will remain my favourite.)

    22. This story was wholly original. Even so, I could tell what was coming at the end. In some ways it was a bit repetitive. While it was a good book, her other books were more engaging to me.

    23. one of my favorite books Need to know author name so as not to be confused with another title of same name

    24. Where is Prince Ivor and what will those who want him to be king do if he isn't found. The author always tells a good tale and takes readers into adventure.

    25. It was great and all, but it wasn’t as fun to read as Little Lord Fauntleroy, A Little Princess, or The Secret Garden.

    26. This has been my least favorite entry so far on my epic Frances Hodgson Burnett marathon. That isn't to say that the book is terrible, just that it is problematic and clumsy in contrast with the rest of FHB's work. FHB's works -- including this one -- both show and tell that good people are primarily the result of good nurture rather than good nature, and have many characters of high social standing who are as strictly principled as they are because they are so aware of both their power and thei [...]

    27. Marco Loristan, twelve years old, has just moved to shabby quarters at No. 7 Philibert Place in London, England, with his father, Stefan Loristan, and their manservant Lazarus. The three have lived in many places, including Moscow, Paris, Munich, and Vienna, because they are refugees from Samavia (a fictitious eastern European country). Some 500 years before, the last legitimate king of Samavia was killed, and his heir, Prince Ivor Fedorovitch, mysteriously disappeared. The “Lost Prince” of [...]

    28. In this book, Hodgson gives the child protagonist a wider scenario for action and it doesn't work as well as her stories set in only one place.The problem is that this adventure ends up being too plain and long. There isn't real excitement, danger or challenges for Marco and The Rat. They don't even have to run against the clock. I didn't feel any tension or suspense.Honestly, the mystery was extremely obvious that it made me wonder why a smart boy like Marco didn't guessed it.The Rat's boy crus [...]
