A Great First Listen
This is a book I always meant to read, but never did. So it made a good choice for my first audio book.
The story is actually pretty good; I liked Fanny and was always hoping she would get her Charles back, even while enjoying her adventures with others. I disagree with the publisher that it is ?hilarious?, but it is mostly light hearted and amusing.
The descriptions of erotic scenes without ever using a single obscene word demonstrate that explicit content does not have to be vulgar. While little is left to the imagination, there is almost an innocence in the narrative that is quite amusing at times.
The language is 200 years old and hard to follow at times. But Barbara McCulloh?s reading is wonderful. Her voice is clear and strong and easy to understand, despite having to deal with some words that are rare in today?s vocabulary.
For me this was an excellent introduction to recorded books.

The book is a classic!
I first read this book when I was 17. That was a very long time ago. I recently re-read it to see if it was still amusing, and it was indeed. The mores of different times and places cannot help but fascinate. The book has a freshness and innocence that is surprising, considering the subject matter. I highly recommend.
