This variation on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice would definitely make Miss Austen blush. It contains explicit sex whereas the original novel hardly alluded to the sexual natures of Elizabeth and Darcy. Elizabeth Klett's reading is superb; she has a perfect English accent and changes her tone of voice for the different characters. If Ms. Klett is blushing as she narrates the sex scenes, the listener will not detect it in her voice! Well-read. The author, Abigail Reynolds, has come up with an interesting and fun variation on the original Pride and Prejudice.
I enjoyed Shannon Winslow's imaginative vision of Jane Austen's life and her version of Jane Austen's great love affair. Ms. Winslow has cleverly imagined Jane Austen in relation to her writing of the novel Persuasion and the book is well-written. The book is also suspenseful and satisfying. The narration done by Elizabeth Klett is superb. Ms. Klett has a wonderful English accent and she adroitly changes her voices so one hears different characters as they come up in the story. All in all, this was a most enjoyable recording.
Sarah Stonich is a great writer (I have also listened to her novel These Granite Islands) and this is a very good modern romance novel. The narrator does an excellent job with the Canadian, British, and Irish accents.
Elizabeth Klett does a great English accent and diversifies her tone of voice for the different characters, making for a very enjoyable listening experience.
This is a suspenseful mystery with interesting characters. Elizabeth Klett does a great job narrating. I really loved the heroine, Nell, and felt for her plight. The author writes well and I'm looking forward to the sequel.
Sarah Stonich provides a non-linear story of a woman's life. She weaves events forward and backward making for an interesting chronicle of Isobel Howard's life. Writing about love, loss, and commitment to friendship may not be considered exciting to some people but I loved this book and related to the main character through several events. The narrative kept my interest and there was even suspense near the end of the novel (no spoiler alerts will be given here!). Elizabeth Klett's skillful reading enhanced my experience of listening to Ms. Stonich's well-written book.
I've listened to many of Elizabeth's Klett's books on tape and she reads exceptionally well. Her reading of Miss Fuller was superb as usual. Miss Fuller is an interesting character and I felt very sympathetic towards her and not very charitable towards her contemporaries. I highly recommend this book.
