    Award-winning author, narrator, and screenwriter Neil Gaiman personally selected this book, and, using the tools of the Audiobook Creation Exchange (ACX), cast the narrators and produced this work for his audiobook label, Neil Gaiman Presents. In this exciting new "illuminated production", the author herself reads her own work, supported by a full cast.

    Ann says: "Austen-es​que tale (with swordfight​s!)"
    "Thanks, Neil Gaiman!"

    Where does The Privilege of the Sword rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've not listened to very many audiobooks, but it is definitely a great one.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is great - strong female character defying gender stereotypes - not entirely genre, but alt-universe. Swordfighting, political intrigue and great romance.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Fantastic narration all around - made that much better during party scenes when additional voices were added to the mix. The author is fantastic, but the breadth of emotion and the different speaking styles of the additional actors really created a deeper world. Barbara Rosenblatt was terrific.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud a few times and got misty eyed as well. It's touching and amusing.


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely a treat. Have to thank Neil Gaiman Presents for turning me on to a new author - and with such panache.
