Excellently Narrated

Excellently narrated. Strongly look forward to purchasing more audiobooks narrated by Ms. Scacchi. As an actress she emblems each character with a unique life force that makes for wonderful listening. BRAVO.

Good story great reader

Would you listen to Persuasion again? Why?

I listened to the previews of all the versions of Persuasion and I am so glad I went with Greta. She read this story very well. I wish she had more books. The story itself is very good, being Jane Austen and it is made even more enjoyable by the reader.


What about Greta Scacchi’s performance did you like?

She does a great job with inflection and changes her voice to suite the characters in a nice consistent way.
