"Persuasion" will always be my all-time favorite Jane Austen novel. Normally, I also like Flo Gibson's narrating as well. Unfortunately, this version was terrible. The sound went in & out, got scratchy and off balance at times, to the point that I was constantly readjusting the volume. Ten minutes into the audiobook, I was convinced I should have bought a different copy. The audio was so bad, it really took away from the story.
I loved the story, and thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. However, I was a bit of a drawback listening to the falsetto male voice for the heroine.
The story is a cute idea, with plenty of Austen references, and performed well by Katherine Kellgren. It's not a terribly deep plot, and got sort of redundant in a few places. Still, I have a long commute, and it was light and fun to listen to on the way home after a stressful day.
