I guess its hard to tread in the footsteps of the classics but this book was bler!!
It is potentially an interesting tale based on a strange historical event but somehow the thread of base and frequently tainted sexuality seemed to undermine the story and it ended up sounding a tad sleazy and at times as if the crude bits were added for effect.May be it is just me but I felt a little put off at times.
What a good job this author has made in her neat and interesting completion of this work. Her style was every bit a Charlotte Bronte yet the subject matter very obviously came from a contemporary author.
Very well narrated and very very enjoyable . Many thanks
This breathtakingly beautiful work by Charlotte Bronte took me to new and unknown vistas.Her portrayal of the complex young school mistress in the French school was touching but also full of brave dignity. What a sweetly sad tale.
Karen Cass is a reader of significant talent and her interpretation of the various individuals in this story were strong and consistent.Her use of the French language is impeccable and a joy to listen to. My sincere thanks for a glimpse of the inner and outer worlds of Lucy show
I gave myself to Charles Dickens with a degree of apprehension being a complete Beginner to both Dickens and audio books. What a sheer delight this listening experience has been and will now be mourned since it is complete.
David Timson is sensational in his capacity to bring to life the diverse characters in this great classic . Never a boring moment, his voice was clear and full of vitality.I felt almost as if I were apart of the whole story such was the clarity of both the drama and the characterisations of this truly gifted reader.
Please please Mr Timson give us more Charles Dickens to yield to. You may have spoil t me for all others! A delight. Thank you
