Good story, great reading.

Chopin is classic literature. Her messages still ring true, and this book is a fantastic addition to the canon. I read a short story of hers, "Story of an Hour," but this novel does a much more thorough job exploring those themes. It's also an easy read.

Recording could be more animated.

The voice seemed a little lifeless sometimes. Nothing too bad. Overall, the book and listening was splendid.
