    "Wonderful!"

    I love classic novels, especially those by female authors such as Edith Wharton, Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters. Since I used to have commute over an hour each way, five days a week for three years, I found myself listening to classic novels more than reading them. The one narrator that always stood out from the others was Flo Gibson. It was like her voice was made to narrate the classics. I am amazed at times how she can seamlessly flow from one character to the next without struggling in the least with the ornate vocabulary or the formal (and sometimes informal) manner of which most of the characters spoke. In Jane Eyre, there are entire paragraphs spoken in French but she speaks French as well as she speaks English. I can't imagine why anyway would give her performance anything less than 5 stars. I would listen to anything that she narrates.

    The main reason I wrote this review was to comment on Flo Gibson's performance but I will say that the story itself is beautifully written, intriguing and heartfelt. You will love Jane Eyre.

    What did you love best about Jane Eyre?

    I just love this story. Jane never gives up and always finds a tread to hold onto.


    What about Flo Gibson’s performance did you like?

    I really enjoy Flo's voice ever since I heard her read the Secret Garden.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Her romance and her last visit with her aunt.


    Any additional comments?
