    Story
    (17)

    First published in 1848, Camille captivated Paris and has inspired countless adaptations. This classic story of love and loss is based on the author’s real-life affair with courtesan Marie Duplessis. Also known as The Lady of the Camellias, the novel follows the courtesan Marguerite Gautier through her tumultuous love affair with handsome—but middle class—Armand Duval. Before their passionate affair is over, one lover must give up everything.

    Michael says: "Better than Play, Opera, or Movie"
    "A fully emotional & captivating book"

    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Most certainly, because one had to know if he was going mad or was correct about what was going on. Would he succeed?


    What does Christian Rodska bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Pace, consistency, colour to the characters


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

    Yes, but impossible to do.


    Any additional comments?

    highly recommended.
