Publisher's Summary

"El Dorado" is a historical spy adventure from "The Scarlet Pimpernel" series. The story is set in Paris, in 1794, the time after the French Revolution and the guillotine horrors. The plot begins when Sir Percy, the Scarlet Pimpernel, reluctantly agrees to take Armand St. Just, brother of his wife, Marguerite, with him to France as part of a plan to rescue the young Dauphin. Percy warns Armand not to renew any friendships while in Paris, but it doesn't take long before Armand has ignored his warnings and renewed a friendship with the scheming Baron de Batz, who wants to free the Dauphin himself and despises the Scarlet Pimpernel and all he represents...

great book - inexperienced narrator

This is a really fun story. Percy's character is so likeable. the narrator has a great French accent, but besides that, was kind of monotone. This so far is the only option I saw to be able to listen to this book, so it was fine, but I might recommend just reading the book rather than listening to it in that case.

Magnificent

If you liked the Scarlet Pimpernel movie, you will love the whole series of books. And this is one of the best. The reading by Helen Stainer is very good too.

Too Flat and Too Fast

The narrator reads so quickly and with so little inflection that it detracted from the story.

Great book!

This is truly a great historical novel, full of suspense and intrigue. The narrator reads at a fast pace which adds to the suspense. I would recommend the books about the Scarlet Pimpernel.
