I really like Victorian novels, particularly Trollope and especially the parts set in Clubs. This book is a really interesting study of the nature and attraction of clubs and the intersection between clubs, literature and society in Victorian London. It's quite dense and scholarly and has a small target audience but I really enjoyed it. I have an English degree and it took me right back.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Very detailed and fascinating information. Great for research and history but not for long periods of listening.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Perhaps a rewrite to make it more socially interesting and less overtly academic. Certainly a different narrator.
Would you be willing to try another one of Leonard Nelson’s performances?
No. The tone is monotonous and adds no life to the book. Perhaps a narrator with an English accent would be better as it's about an essentially English time and topic. The mispronunciations and misemphases of names and words were annoying.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Not a book to make a film of but it might make a great documentary.
