An amazing story with a horrible reader
Victoria McGee pulls off the tone of the story
I would listen to this story again because it really captured the era. The class distinctions were interesting and the story is an historical snapshot of a time.
I have read the book a few times before, but I thought the narrator really captured the biting commentary of the characters. The words seem so innocent, but they have a lot of power, and at times cattiness, behind them. I am a fan of the compliment delivered with the slap across the face and this story has quite a bit of that.
I laughed all the way through the conversation between Lady Catherine and Elizabeth. It was like watching a tennis game where each tries to get one over on the other and Lizzy came out on top.
The only thing that was a little off-putting were the huge silent gaps between chapters. I checked my iPod quite a few times to make sure that it hadn't stopped playing (my iPod does that sometimes for no reason). Once I got used to them though I just let it go.
