I've seen a movie based on this novel maybe thirty years ago (yes, I am that old), then I ventured to listen to the novel, which forced me to stay up until 4 AM for two consecutive days, and I doubt that I'll be rewarded with equal pleasure any time in the near future. I hope others will find as much pleasure as I did in this beautiful novel.

Scaramouche has always been one of my favorite novels. It has everything good escape fiction should have- great characters, an interesting setting, twists and turns, ups and downs and surprises. I've probably read the book three or four times but it all seemed fresh again with this reading. The reader does a very good job with most of the characters and keeps the action moving very fast. Several times I sat in my car continuing to listen (I listen to books in my car via my Ipod) even though I had arrived at my destination- always a mark of a good audiobook. I only have one complaint. Some of the older female characters were made to seem a bit too pompous and ridiculous through the reading.

I really enjoyed this! Reminded me much of The Count of Monte Cristo. Romantic in the classical sense and a joy to listen to, partly down to the talented narrator. Impressed by his tone and superb handling of dialogue for both male and female characters - will look for his other performances.
You know a books brilliantly done when it retales as a film in your head....
