This book is not just for children! I am in my late-twenties, and I am hooked on this series. Penelope Lumley is such a likeable protagonist, and the Incorrigible children are such interesting characters. I highly recommend this series.
OMG the other reviews are right! This narrator is completely wrong for this story. He sounds like a 30-year-old man, but the main character is supposed to be 15. I just couldn't buy it with this narrator. The narrator also has strange intonation and stress patterns - the words he emphasizes are weirdly chosen, and the dialogue is kind of stilted and unrealistic because of it.
The story is good, but the narrator made it really frustrating to get through.
Jane Eyre is a classic book. I love the heroine's quiet strength, and her resolve to do what she believes is right, despite how it conflicts with what would be pleasurable. Her self-respect despite her low station is really admirable.
I think the voice actor, Susan Ericksen, was such an excellent choice for this book. Her soft-spoken performance, and her range of emotion, seemed like a natural fit for Jane, and she was a delight to listen to for the entire length of the book. Hearing the book read by Susan Ericksen really added to the experience.
