I am not quite willing to go that far, BUT I am getting so much more of the humor and sarcasm of the author than I would have gotten had I read the print version. Listening slows me down and makes me much more aware of the author's skill and appreciative of the narration than I would be with a traditional read!
I have enjoyed the author's revealing how Maggie is trapped by circumstances and her environment.
I have come to appreciate the stories I have read about books like this novel or ones by Dickens being read aloud in a group to a family circle. Although I am a huge fan of listening to audiobooks in general and Audible in particular, with this novel, the listening has been even more productive than a conventional reading would have been. I am...surprised by the pleasure of a classic.
