    "destructive abridgements"
    Any additional comments?

    I try to practice advocacy journalism and avoid posting negative reviews but in this case i am called to speak truth to the marketplace.
    These abridgements are destructive to the rhythm and substance of Peters’ historical narratives and dialog.
    Jacobi’s reading is [as always] masterful — none the less--
    In my view— these recordings are acceptable only as a kind of memory aid supposing you are intent on reading and studying Peters’ marvelous series.
    Unabridged versions of these novels as audio books are available tho quite expensive.
    Hopefully Audible will make these available to us in the future.
    Sincerely, wl

    "Superlative storytelling!"

    So lovely to hear Jacobi reading of a character he played so well on PBS. I will certainly come back to listen to this collection again.

    "Wonderful!"

    Sir Derek Jacobi is a sensational narrator. He made the tales come alive. I was sorry to come to the end.

    "A fabulous collection of stories; great narration"

    These are GREAT stories. I love the characters,the tales are intriguing, and it's great historical fiction.

    If you like either light mystery, historical fiction, or just a good story, you should love these.

    Derek Jacobi is perfect as the narrator.
