    "You Have to Read it More Than Once"

    I'm an artist so I love to be able to listen to a good story while I paint. Usually I get my Kindle reader to narrate for me, and she does her best (considering that she isn't a real person!), but she isn't as expressive as Flo Gibson and nor does she have a facility for accents (apart from an American accent).
    I like the way Voltaire manages to sum up human nature in one quirky short story. The things I had found shocking and irksome during the first reading became uproariously funny to me upon hearing for a second time. I like the fact that I'm still thinking about the story two days later.
    I like her expressiveness. At first I wondered why there seemed to be a hint of Irish or Scottish in the voices she gave to some of the characters but later I understood that the accents were representative of any optimist, philosopher, servant, baron etc... from any time or land.
    II enjoyed it so much that I'm going to hear it again - just in case I missed anything!
