Entertaining and highly informative. The 19th century Americans overseas are well-fleshed out in these narratives. The French are laid bare to expose their worst foibles and endearing eccentricities.
What a fabulous reading of Dickens this is. Mr. Lesser is a brilliant narrator. His voice characterizations are highly evocative of the hearts, class and breeding of these Victorians. I was completely taken in from the get-go.
I enjoyed the story only slightly less than the performances by these very talented women.
Mr. Jones' reading of the older Jacob is very well done. I wish he might have read the entire book.
There are no tales by Wilde, Chekhov or de Maupassant on this recording. The notes are deceiving. These are are all children's tales by Amanda Thomas.
