I can see why this is a classic!

Captivating and intriguing. Listened to it while on a road trip and was wide awake in the middle of the night with interest of how this mysterious story would turn out.

It's up to the Narrator

The Scarlet Pimpernel is a fantastic book however Walter Zimmerman reads this beautiful book like he's reading the nightly news report... it's so annoying if it weren't on my ipod I'd have thrown it at the wall. I am an avid audiobook listener and I will never buy another book narrated by this person.
