Yes, I bought it because it was Benedict Cumberbatch reading it. He is wonderful with the different voices and accents. He didn't just read. It truly was a performance. Good job Benedict! I am hooked on this series. Beautifully written and rich detail and feeling. I love the gentle humor as well. You truly enjoy these characters. I've bought several more in the series although he has only read two others. One word of warning on this series. Do not buy the ones that Nadia May reads. Dull and flat and she sounds like she needs to blow her nose. Pick another performer. Ben! Read some more please!

I have loved this author's Jane Austen series. The book is probably just as good as her others. But I could not endure the person reading. Dramatic in all the wrong places and plodding. I'm easy to please as a rule. But I just couldn't finish this book. In fact, I got about 20 minutes in and gave up. Bad choice performance wise.
