I would have said that I knew the story of Hamlet quite well but this version clarified so much. Brilliantly written and the fantastic narration by Armitage just adds so much. I thoroughly enjoyed this and am now moving on to Macbeth!

Would you listen to David Copperfield [Audible] again? Why?

Richard Armitage does an excellent job reading this beautiful book. He brings the characters to life and also the beauty of Dickens' writing. There are subtleties that I realize I missed when I read it so many years ago.

What other book might you compare David Copperfield [Audible] to and why?

I think Vanity Fair is the book that comes to mind. Both books are filled with a variety of characters, good and bad.

Which scene was your favorite?

All of the scenes with his aunt - she is such a lovely character!

Any additional comments?

Even if you have read this book I highly recommend listening to Richard Armitage narrating it. I feel as if I'm re-discovering this lovely book through his narration.

Excellent biography of ER and what made her the woman she was. The narrator was perfect neither too fast nor too slow. I'm already looking forward to Volume 2

Clear, concise and engaging. There is so much myth around Custer's Last Stand. Philbrick wrote a well-balanced account telling both sides of the story. Brilliant

Obviously a great story by Stephen King but the narrator really brings this story to life. Tone of voice, nuances, everything to bring the teenagers involved to life.

What did you love best about The Turn of the Screw?

Emma Thompson brings the horror and sheer creepiness of the story to life.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Turn of the Screw?

For me, I think it was the end. In turns horrifying and heart-wrenching.

Which character – as performed by Emma Thompson and Richard Armitage - introduction – was your favorite?

Mrs. Groves

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When the governess realized the full extent of what was happening.

Any additional comments?

Just a brilliant performance. I do hope Emma Thompson decides to narrate more books.
