Lovely

Flo Gibson's reading of this masterwork can be grating. It lacks the subtlety and invention of George Guidell's gorgeous performance of Crime and Punishment. But the story is so compelling and the characters so sympathetic, the intelligence so impressive, you are carried along.

Highly recommend

The story and writing are good, and I love Flo Gibson's voice. I gave it four stars Overall because the production value is not as high here as it is in her other audiobooks. That being said, occasional imperfections in the editing did not prevent me from enjoying the listen.
