A Firecracker Anti-Heroine!

Not my first engagement with Jane Austen's Lady Susan, but it was my first time experiencing it in audio format. And what a delightful surprise to discover that this audio was a cast of narrators to take the major voices of the story.

I found the humor stood out even more and enjoyed encountering those witty lines that draw my appreciation the most. Of particular worthiness are Lady Susan to her friend agasp when anyone catches her out in her machinations and her determination to make them pay because the individual put her out by forcing her to be more energetic in her selfish interests.

The performance sparkled.

All in all, I was well-pleased with this edition and experience and would recommend the new found joy of experiencing

Honest as only Jane Austen can be

Lady Susan is a great short story. Jane Austen has yet again captured the unseemly side of her sex. She doesn’t cast her in an unfair light by any means. Lady Susan isn’t just a character she’s the woman we all know to avoid.

Disappointed Boring does not hold attentio. Not up

I was disappointed in this story. Not up to Jane Austin standards. I found my attention wandering from time to time.
