What did you love best about Mrs. Bridge?

Laugh out loud funny at times, with a subtle but pointed humor. Also deep and moving, highly recommend!

What made the experience of listening to The Portrait of a Lady the most enjoyable?

This is one of the best books I've ever read by an American author, and truthfully my favorite book of all time. James' characters and scenes are described in the most heartbreakingly beautiful language.

Who was your favorite character and why?

There are so many incredible character studies in this book, it's impossible to pick just one, but to witness Isabel Archer and understand her and see her go through what she does, is an unbelievable, but sad pleasure.

What about John Wood’s performance did you like?

Next to a narration by Will Patton (who does mostly contemporary American narration) John Wood is the best narrator I've listened to, just defies belief. Such emotion and intelligence in his reading. The best!

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

So enjoyable, it's long but you don't want to miss a word. I'm listening to it for the second time in a couple years.
