Female, love a good mystery, Victorian English literature and love to laugh (Dickens, Austen, Trollepe, Wodehouse, Gaskell, Elliot
Most Definitely. i've read this book several times, seen the movie and have now listened to it narrated most beautifully by Juliette Stephenson. It never gets old, never fails to delight.
Anything written by Jane Austen, Elizabeth Gaskell, or Anthony Trollope
The emotion and personality of each character, male and female. She is a top-notch narrator.
It is all good.
This is one of the best books in English literature. Complex, well-developed characters, especially the heroine.
I always thought I would never like anyone reading Emma, but Flo Gibson. I was wrong. Juliet Stevenson does a wonderful job.
"Badly done Emma." Well done Juliet!!
this is a classic story or england at it's most proper concerning love and relationship- i thoroughly enjoyed it. it got really slow in the middle and i thought i wouldn't make it but the narrator is so superb that i wanted to keep listening for that reason. it then picked up pace towards the end and got really very enjoyable.
Jane Austen writes in a way that you never want to stop the story. and Stevenson's narration incorporates such a wealth voices that you can actually picture each one of the characters as if you know them.
This book was phenomenal! Completely different than P & P or S & S. No ideal heroines or heroes. Everyone is flawed and almost everyone has redeeming qualities. What a fun read this is! Ms. Stevenson turns in another fantastic performance!
Reading anything and everything...
Even if you do not love Austen you will fall in love with this performance. Juliet Stevenson is outstanding in interpreting this literary classic. After reading this myself and then watching all the BBC productions as well as Hollywood offerings, I learned so much more about the character development and the underlying society rules that govern all Austen's work. Even if you have listened to another version, you need to hear this one. It truly is outstanding. Stevenson is a great actor and this venue makes her star shine.
