Like another reviewer I don't like the sound of American fiction narrators but after reading other reviews I found myself totally agreeing - I really enjoyed the narrative and found the performance really engaging. Story weakened towards the end but it was still a lovely form of escapism, a beautiful setting and a wonderful group of Librarians.

I wish I had known what this was about before I downloaded it - it's just too much and goes on and on with it's gratuitous dirty men.

Refreshing and enjoyable

Nothing boring and predictable in this book which is refreshing and enjoyable. I really enjoyed this one after a series of Audible returns.

Superb!

This is such an enjoyable read and I would imagine better than the conventional book because of Acaster's brilliant narration!

Surprising and engaging!

Well worth a read. I don't think I'll ever approach the Dictionary the same way again!

Thank you Mr Fellowes for writing an equal parts engaging and entertaining novel! I am an avid reader and also have to read a lot for my job and Belgravia was an engaging break from novels that try too hard. Excellent characterisation and evocative scenes dropped me into Victorian England and left me wondering how all the plot threads would come together. Wonderful!

6 Stars!

What did you like most about Revolution?

This book is so much more than I was expecting. Russell Brand is reminiscent of King Solomon - wise through experience. Also, in contrast to being a "celebrity author", Brand leaves his ego at the door. I always feel like famous authors tell you what they want to for their big $$$$ Book Deal. This was so much more!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Revolution?

Brand's perspective on gay marriage

What about Russell Brand’s performance did you like?

He knows how to engage a reader through varied intonation and humour

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Aunthenticity Beyond
