The first of four volumes, published during the years 1873-1876, it is considered to be the archetypal, erotic Victorian novel. Young Charlie Roberts exudes an insatiable sexual appetite. His proclivities are awakened by Mrs Benson, a friend of the family. Charlie immediately applies his knowledge in sexual encounters with siblings and in the ultimate wooing of the exquisite family governess, Miss Emily.
Originally banned in the United States, scenes of various sexual activities may shock many modern listeners.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
if this was the complete story
Would you be willing to try another book from uncredited? Why or why not?
no. i found it misleading to offer the audio book without being clear it was only the first volume.
Did Priscilla Carson and Roger Frisk do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
not the issue
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Any additional comments?
when you sell an audio book you should make it clear that is in incomplete.
The dialogue at times don't come out naturally enough from the female side. Male sounds too ok when voice narrator's younger self. Needs a larger cast. Still overall enjoyable. Hopefully all volumes get translated.
