It makes the people who know me laugh at me but I look forward to my 90 minute commute every day because I get to spend time with my latest 'audible' book and no demands from anyone else. This has been especially true for my readings of Trollope's Barsetshire novels, especially 'Doctor Thorne'. I find these wonderful narrations an escape from stress and care and I am grateful for their re-recordings. These new, fresh versions have excellent sound quality and a truly outstanding reader in Simon Vance. For those who savor 19th century English novels, nothing can beat a few hours with Anthony Trollope and Simon Vance. By the time I get home I'm a pleasure to be near again (or at least that's what I like to think).
I enjoyed every minute of this well narrated and well written book. It is the basis for the part of the movie Julie/Julia that is based on Julia Child's life and it describes both her love of cooking and the delights of living in France...also the delights of EATING in France. A great recommendation for fans of France or of Julia Child."
