    My daughter and I listened to this book while we were driving from Colorado to Michigan. When we stopped for the night, we couldn't wait to hit the road the next day to find out what was going to happen next!

    The story was well read, and the different voice characterizations ensured we never got confused or wondered who was doing what. Our road trip flew by. We can't wait to take the same trip this coming summer and listen to the next book, Magic Study.

    I could not rate this book with 5 stars because of one thing. The descriptions included even the smallest detail and were somewhat tedious; however, had I been reading the book, I would have skimmed over most of these. I would not have been as happy with an abridged format of the book though, so just be prepared to hear some looooong descriptions!

    The tragic but doomed love of Marguerite and Armand became one of the great love stories from its first publication in 1848. In this sound dramatization of the consumptive heroine's ultimate sacrifice, the story of passion and conflict is fresh and compelling as when it was first written.

    Overall

    I frequently listen to many audible books to complete my reading assignments for college. However, this is one of the best classic dramatizations I have heard so far. The sound quality, background nuances, and orchestration throughout were excellent! I would have loved this rendition even had I not been required to read it for class! I recommend it for everyone, and be ready for your heart to break!
