Fantastic Narrator

I don't always prefer audiobooks, but I prefer the classics on audiobook, I feel like good narration helps bring you back to that time and suspend disbelief. This is a perfect example.

This is a great story, with great characters, but that aside, this narrator really brings it out. If you're like me where a narrator makes or breaks an audiobook, you won't be disappointed with this one. I was surprised to see that he has a short list of audiobooks to his name.

Somewhere in the universe, Flaubert is smiling...

...to hear the sound of Ronald Pickup's deft Bovary character interpretations, whose cadence, rhythm, and intonation are nothing short of masterful. My only regret is that no other Flaubert offerings are entrusted to him. This one is a must-listen!
