    What made the experience of listening to Casanova the most enjoyable?

    Let's be honest, if you are a fan of Ben, part of the allure is his voice. Does it really matter what he is reading? But the combination of the floral language and Ben's voice is perfect.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Casanova?

    I am a wordsmiths at heart and poetic language is my weakness.


    What about Benedict Cumberbatch’s performance did you like?

    Ummm.....everything.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. This is my soaking in a warm bubble bath audio book. It is a sensual delight to the ears.


    Any additional comments?

    Just allow yourself the pleasure of drifting into the story and his voice. You will not regret it. Do not use while driving.
    And of course it is not the compleat memoirs. Just enjoy the experience.

    Moomintroll lives in Moominhouse, nestled in Moomin Valley - a place where everyone does what they like and hardly ever worries about tomorrow. Together with Moominmamma and Moominpappa, Snufkin, Sniff and the others, Moomintroll has some marvellous adventures!

    At first I only ordered this book to listen th Mr. Laurie's beautiful English accent, but it turned out to be a pretty good book. I hate to admit it, but at 33 years old I listen to it as a bedtime story!
