Incoherent abridgement - ludicrious references
Would you try another book from Sarah Dunant and/or Jenny Sterling?
Would you ever listen to anything by Sarah Dunant again?
What didn’t you like about Jenny Sterling’s performance?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Birth of Venus?
it was an incoherent abridgement - unbalanced. Long drawn out parts and then rushing through teh last 1/2 of the story in the last hour. To be fair, I do not like abridged versions and msised that when I ordered it, but it was terribly done in this case.
Any additional comments?
Especially annoying - having a 15th century narrator use words like "crap" and talk about contractions being 5 min apart - discredited the whole suspended disbelief.
