Review of the performance

There are several adaptations of The Age of Innocence available on Audible, and before purchasing this one, I spent some time reading reviews, focusing on the performance reviews. Most adaptations had mixed performance reviews. Although there were no reviews of this version, I decided to give it a try. Susie Berneis does a fine job reading this novel. Although the accent of Madame Olenska is very faint (none existent sometimes), I thought that it was appropriate for the character. She does a good job with the male voices and a very good job with May Welland. Was pleased with this purchase.
