    The Red and the Black is a powerful character study of Julien Sorel, a clever and idealistic young opportunist who attempts to rise above his station through a combination of talent, deception, and hypocrisy. He uses his powers of seduction and charm to secure advancement, only to find himself betrayed by his own passions and outwitted by the larger political and social intrigues of post-Napoleonic France.

    Overall

    Contrary to a previous reviewer, I found the audio file of this book quite clear. Every word was audible.

    As for the narrator, David Case, he's quite good here. He brings out Stendhal's humor, especially with his voice of the main character, Julian. I'd gladly listen to this book again.
