    Paul Scofield and Patricia Routledge star in Noël Coward’s classic comedy of manners. Private Lives was written in 1930 and has been a mainstay of British theatre ever since. This sharply funny play of reversals focuses on Elyot and Amanda, a passionate but feuding couple who divorced five years before. Now, on the first night of their honeymoons with their new partners, they find that they are all staying in the same hotel on the French Riviera. Fireworks are inevitable....

    Let me start by saying that Noel Coward is a genius. There is no doubt that he is a very witty and talented playwright. Having said that, maybe this play isn't his best. The actors' dialogue seems forced and overdone. I ended up being annoyed rather than amused.

    Lady Edwina Bollash is a woman of importance and distinction who has never been the object of any man's affection. However, when she meets Mick Tremore, a tall, handsome young man from the bottommost rung of society, she instantly attracts his attention. As Mick wants desperately to become a gentleman, Edwina decides to transform him into a man with class.

    Overall

    Maybe it's because I have been listening to audio books by Amanda Quick and Jennifer Crusie who are arguably better writers than Judith Ivory but I listened to the first half hour of this audio book and had to stop. It was written poorly, the characters were not interesting, and the narrator's accent was all over the place. I wouldn't recommend reading or listening to this author again.
