The Golden Age is a collection of Kenneth Grahame's reminiscences of childhood, notable for their conception of a world where children are locked in perpetual warfare with the adult "Olympians" who have wholly forgotten how it feels to be young-a theme later explored by J. M. Barrie and other authors.

"This audiobook is a lesser-known collection of childhood reminiscences by the author of THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS. Narrator Simon Vance does his best to liven up the stories, originally written in 1895. The work has a nostalgic tone and often makes references to Greek myths. Vance delivers a commanding performance. While the stories are intended for children, they do not come across as having been written solely for children. Vance's narration style places them in the context of more popular British stories like those of Lewis and Tolkein. Nonetheless, because of its Victorian style, this work may have a difficult time capturing today's audience. A.G.M. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
