What did you love best about The Age of Desire?
Edith Wharton! In her excellent novel, Fields delicately traces the sexual and sensual blooming of a mature woman, revealing both the immense joy and the inevitable complications of such a journey.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I love the Wharton character because I love Edith Wharton's own fiction but Anna, the unassuming secretary, may be the real heroine.
What does Meredith Mitchell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
a variety of voices though the men who are supposed to sound Bostonian sound more southern to me
Who was the most memorable character of The Age of Desire and why?
Morton Fullerton - a lover and a cad but also a man capable of appreciating sensuality in all its forms
Any additional comments?
Someone should have coached the narrator on her German! The pronunciation was way beyond incorrect. It's a quibble but there are quite a lot of German phrases in the narrative- one actually key - and it would have taken no time at all to explain how to say them correctly. jarred my enjoyment every time!
Meredith, please don't give up, but do practice more or stick to female characters which you do very well, albeit somewhat inconsistently just yet. But oh my. I just happened to have the print copy first and thought, just maybe, the audiobook would be a delight. Why? Any Edith Wharton fans out there will LOVE the book. And maybe contribute to Jennie Fields, author, to have this gem re-narrated. Because the original print version IS that excellent! For now, go to the public library or order it, 'cause this 'performance' not only shows the difficulty re the art & craft of narration but also makes you wanna cry.
