Would you listen to The Eustace Diamonds again? Why?

I DON'T THINK SO.

What other book might you compare The Eustace Diamonds to and why?

I MIGHT COMPARE IT TO OTHER STORIES WHICH ARE SET IN VICTORIAN TIMES THAT HAVE BEEN WRITTEN BY ANTHONY TROLLOPE

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

HE BRINGS ANTHONY TROLLOPE'S CHARACTERS TO LIFE AND MR WEST READS SO WONDERFULLY

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

PERHAPS NOT.

Any additional comments?

I FIND LISTENING TO NARRATED BOOKS MUCH MORE INTERESTING THAN READING THEM -- IT'S EASY TO GET TO KNOW THE CHARACTERS AND ALSO TO VISUALISE THEM.
