    When Isabel Archer, a beautiful, spirited American, is brought to Europe by her wealthy Aunt Touchett, it is expected that she will soon marry. But Isabel, resolved to determine her own fate, does not hesitate to turn down two eligible suitors. She then finds herself irresistibly drawn to Gilbert Osmond, who, beneath his veneer of charm and cultivation, is cruelty itself. A story of intense poignancy, Isabel's tale of love and betrayal still resonates with modern audiences.

    James W. Black says: "Very bad narration"
    "Not a pleasant voice"
    Overall

    After thoroughly enjoying "Pride and Prejudice," narrated by Emilia Fox, I thought I would like "The Portrait of a Lady." I did not wonder about the narrator's voice because it has never been a problem for me. I am not able to sample books on my computer so I went ahead and ordered the first volume. To my disdain the narrator's voice I found is not appropriate for narrating. Her voice is way too deep, wobbly and raspy. At times I could not even understand what she was saying. A clear, normal voice is only appropriate. I would not buy this book unless you can sample it and see for yourself.
