If you enjoy Alcott's A Long Fatal Love Chase, The Inheritance, or any of her stories written under Banard, you'll enjoy A Modern Mephistopheles. Melodramatic, and suspenseful, its charm lies in it being like something Jo March might have written in her blood and thunder days. Solid narration, though at times too soft spoken that the audio must be turned up.
hilarious, memorable, silly
Stanley Featherstonehaugh Ukridge. A lot of the humor comes from SFU being such an unconventional rascal, ne'er do well.
He capably voiced different characters. Lively reading with dramatic/comedic emphasis. Cecil's performance is my favorite, I was so glad when audible added to the store. Before I had the CD audiobook and couldn't enjoy it on my iPod.
The truths in the letter from Aunt Elizabeth. It always makes me feel a bit sympathetic towards Millie Ukridge. I mean, Ukridge's rascally behavior is comical, but gosh there is something tragic in Millie being married to such a flake.
Wodehouse had a way with words, and Love Among the Chickens is one of his stories that is a great pick-me-up when you're in need of a laugh. It stands up to repeat listening too. Just try it old horse.
Virginia's Leishman's narration is excellent, as is the audio quality. I already own another recording, but I purchased this one because it was available in a better quality. A wonderful story of a little girl's character tested in the face of adversity. Its one of the select few audiobooks that I always keep on my ipod, so that I may listen to random selections.
Captivating. You won't want to pause it even for a moment. Dahl's voice is strong, engaging, and convincing as a variety of characters. Best of all, you'll find none of the cheesy music and sound effects that plague other audio books.
