Will probably listen to this again

I'm definitely a fan of the Scarlet Pimpernel. It's a tad dramatic and a tad predictable, but the characters are fun and honestly, I wouldn't mind listening to this book again.

nostalgic

I hadn't read this since I was a teenager, and it's good to see it stand up solidly. Marguerite's relationship strife really hit home, though there's an uuncomfortable racial caricature near the end. I really liked the whiskey grandma timbre of Flo Gibson's voice. That said, this particular recording is rather tinny.

The best book by the worst Narrator

The Scarlet Pimpernel is my all time favourite book. I decided to get it on Audiobook and there were a few to choose from, and stupid me choose this one. The woman is TERRIBLE! Her accents are annoying, she is American, and she sounds like she has smoked way too many cigarettes in her life.

DONT DO IT! Get another version!!!
