I thoroughly recommend this book!. Cleverly written using 900 centuries of local history. I truly didn’t want it to end. It was also wonderful to have a narrator who was able to voice female characters without sounding like a comic female impersonator. Well worth every cent spent.

Sound recording of Miriam Margoyles stage production Dickens’ Women. Miriam really brings Dickens and his female characters to life in this wonderful one woman show. I highly recommend it to fans of both Dickens and Margoyles. You won’t regret it!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It’s well researched, written and read. Interesting from beginning to end. Not to be missed.

Like having a favourite old aunt read you a bedtime story

Despite a few technical difficulties at the beginning of this reading of Expectations: a Continuation of Pride and Prejudice, I really enjoyed this book. Elizabeth Winstanley’s narration is not perfect but truly did remind me of being read to by a much loved maiden Aunt.
The story itself is a lively tale of unrequited love, the newness of marriage and the birth of heirs in Regency England. Many twists and turns lead to the final happy (and expected) conclusion. A much better telling of the continuing lives of Jane Austen‘s much loved characters than others available on Audible.

Wonderful collection of Austen’s main works

Alison Larkin does a wonderful job narrating this collection of Jane Austen’s best known works. The only annoyance is the naming of each chapter which breaks up the story somewhat and the way Audible have chosen to package the download in chunks which makes it difficult to find the beginning of each separate book.

Jane Austen must be rolling in her grave in great distress! The first story in the series was good however the second is so utterly ridiculous, that it was only to find out how horrible it could become that made me listen to the end. I was not disappointed. Ridiculous, never ending dream sequences and almost word for word retelling of the original Pride and Prejudice story made this book almost insupportable to listen to. Also, the narrator has a staccato delivery that is highly annoying.
