Keeping all the characters strait was a challenge. I tried to read this book but was getting hopelessly lost. After listening to the book I was able to go back and finish reading it ...enjoying it a second time. I also moved on to the Honorable School Boy (the follow up book) Both good books with engaging stories.
Two different species, no comparison necessary. I often enjoy listening and reading the same book. You get different but equal enjoyment from both formats.
All of Jane Austen's books are wonderful, but Persuasion and Pride and Prejudice are the best in my opinion. It's the language for me. The slow and careful pacing of the story and the descriptive phrases she uses all combine to make her novels enduring works of literature. As I stated in my title....A treat for the ears and mind.
I have not as yet listened to other of her audio performances but have enjoy her work as an actor,
