Publisher's Summary

Perhaps the most famous alias of all time, The Scarlet Pimpernel hides the identity of a British nobleman who, masked by various disguises, leads a band of young men to undermine the Reign of Terror after the French Revolution.

The Scarlet Pimpernel makes daring raid after daring raid into the heart of France to save aristocrats condemned to the guillotine. At each rescue, he leaves his calling card: a small, blood-red flower--a pimpernel--mocking the power of Robespierre and his Committee of Public Safety.

Having been told that his own wife was an informer who delivered an aristocrat into the hands of the Committee, the Scarlet Pimpernel must keep his identity and work a secret while he struggles against the love he feels for her. Until the day her own brother is taken prisoner....

    "Great book and narration"

    Michael Page brings this book alive, and summons its characters, making them all the more memorable. His third-person narration is fast-paced and lively. Just get it. I demo'd every single recording as of late 2016, and none of them compare.

    Story
    "One of my favorite stories & outstanding narration"
    If you could sum up The Scarlet Pimpernel in three words, what would they be?

    Historic romantic adventure


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Scarlet Pimpernel - he offers such an amazing blend of audacious heroism and romantic vulnerability.


    What does Michael Page bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This narration is one of the best I've ever listened to. He is able to bring the characters fully to life, while somehow keeping from overdoing the nuances of each personality. Wonderful.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Trite as it sounds, I didn't want the story to end.


    Any additional comments?

    I will look for other stories narrated by Michael Page!

    "Best Narration"

    This is by far the best narration, just trust me. Michael Page does all of the voices wonderfully, which I think is one of the most important things. The book was excellently written, and had a very exciting plot.
