The Best of Perry and Porter

Would you listen to Belgrave Square again? Why?

I have read/listened to the entire Thomas and Charlotte Pitt series via Audible. This last book performed by Davina Porter is the most complex and beautifully read. The characters come vividly alive under Davina Porters truly talented reading. The complexity of the plot still brought surprises at the end. As a note for readers going forward in the series the next nine books are MIA's and when you rejoin the series it will be read by Micheal Page. Mr. Page may be talented, but not nearly as effective as Ms. Porter in bringing the characters alive and does not do justice to Ms. Perry's skill in character creation.

Ultimately, a very good book

This started out a bit slow, with what seemed like too much detail about the social mores if the time, but after a while, I realized they were integral to the story and the characters, if only to showcase how stultifying and defining they were to the people’s lives—especially women. The mystery took a few twists and turns and ended satisfactily, with a … but I will leave it here so as not to gove anything away.

Davina Porter is awesome. Enough said.

Best yet.

I loved the way a relatively simple reason for murder is cleverly complicated by the times and by the social hierarchy. I also loved the hidden scandals and subterranean political power structures that this simple murder uncovered. Captivating and alluring story.

The best Anne Perry yet!

A mystery with more questions the further you listen to the story. Every character has a secret, has a reason to be suspect yet the final five minutes had me sitting in the driveway to hear the conclusion. Never saw it coming!!

Addicted to Charlotte and Thomas books

Where does Belgrave Square rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Davina Porter is an amazing narrator. In fact, she's the primary reason I can't get enough of the Pitt series on audio. Ms. Porter easily moves from one dialect to another, skillfully changing her voice from one gender and social class to another. It's her voice that makes me feel like I'm right there in London at the end of the 1800s.

Any additional comments?

I'm only disappointed that this is the last Pitt series book on Audible until later in the series.
