Incredible Reader!

Davina Porter leads the reader directly into the Victorian world with her actress's ability to become both male and female characters with convincing and consistent characterizations. I could almost SEE them as she gave them voice...I will look for her audiobooks in the future with delight and anticipation! Of course, I also love Anne Perry's work.

Great reader, good characters, slow moving

This book is talky and slow moving, but the spectacular narration and well-crafted characters help make up for it. Nicely written and a great portrait of the period, and it takes on interesting social and political issues. The writing style is unobtrusive, which makes for smooth reading. I wouldn't have minded a bit more intrigue, and I found the end a bit weak.
