Stephen Fry is an incredible narrator of this book, making all the characters and descriptions really come alive. He does a fantastic job. Can't wait to hear him as the voice of the book in Hitchiker's movie. The story of Montmorency is fascinating too, especially at the beginning when he is plotting. I loved how all the details of the plan are explained. You really get the sense of someone taking you into their confidence and telling you delicious secrets. Too bad the ending is a considerable let down and just a set up for making this an ongoing series.

Unlike a lot of other escapist fun reading, Montmorency is very well written. Imaginative, involving plot pulls you right in to the historical era and the moral dilemmas that the protagonist encounters as he uses wit and daring to pull himself out of prison, the gutter, and near-death to the highest society. Loved this "underdog fights back" story with lots of historical color, authentic sounding dialogue and a great ending! Great narration on this audiobook adds to the enjoyment.
