I loved the movie North and South so I thought I would love to book. I could not get into the book so I decided to go the audiobook route. I love to hear Juliet Stevenson read so it was a great deal for me. I did not love the actual book ending - but that has nothing to do with the quality of the story/narrator. I just liked the movie ending better.
The narrator, Robert Ian Mackenzie, made a wonderful book fabulous! The story of Freddy and Fredericka is funny - so much so that I continually laughed out loud during many sections. Mackenzie made funny scenes even funnier. I HIGHLY recommend this book. One caution, there are a number of curse words - so if you are offended by F***, S***, and more - skip this book.
I love this story - I love the narration! Well worth the money! If you like Jane Austen, I think you'll love this reading!
We love G.A. Henty novels and were so excited to get this story. We find it very very very hard to listen to because of the narration. I should have listened to the sample first :(
