    Persuasion, Jane Austen's final novel, follows the romance of Anne Elliot and naval officer Frederick Wentworth. They were happily engaged until Anne's friend, Lady Russell, persuaded her that Frederick was "unworthy". Now, eight years later, Frederick returns, a wealthy captain in the navy, while Anne's family teeters on the edge of bankruptcy. They still love each other, but their past mistakes threaten to keep them apart.

    "Speed Reader"
    Overall

    The reader had a good voice, but she read so fast I thought she must have been paid for words per minute. There were no pauses, no inflection, and no emotion. This is my favorite Jane Austin book, but I couldn't listen to such poor reading.

    When country milkman Martin Snell makes his usual delivery to Celandine Cottage one spring morning in Kent, he expects to be greeted by the cottage's sensual and seductive tenant, Gabriella Patten, not by the charred remains of fire pointing to murder.

    "What a Narrator!!"
    Overall

    Derek Jacobi is a fine actor and a great narrator. He can act out all the voices, even the women's voices. I'll listen to anything he reads.
