I recommend this performance to anyone who enjoys stories featuring Jane Austen's memorable characters, but with a detour from their story as we know it. Nina Price gives an enthusiastic vocal performance with unique intonations that surprised and delighted me.
I liked the exploration of the true character of the players in the story. The darkness in the actions of several were quite jarring, as they are so often portrayed as either jovial or pompous, but rarely as malevolent. This story had depth; it wasn't just another glossy repackaging as a humorous social commentary.
This is the first of Nina Price's vocal performances that I have listened to.
