I probably wouldn't listen to The Eustace Diamonds again because I found the story rather slow.
The most interesting aspect of the story was the subplot of a woman with serious misgivings about marrying a man she didn't love. The endless legal talk about the diamonds was the least interesting.
The Duke of Omnium and Gatherum and Lady Glencora were my favorite performances, but unfortunately they only rarely appeared in the story.
I usually didn't listen to more than half an hour at a time. I like the Palliser series, but this was the weakest one so far because the story moved so slowly. I've seen the Palliser miniseries and The Eustace Diamonds was my least favorite part of it, too.
As usual, Simon Vance does a perfect performance.
