Reviews

(4 stars)

Love the story. But sadness sets in. I realized that Karen Savage reads no further in the series . Tried to listen to other reading performers but, alas was not able to finish Lord Tony's wife. I encourage others here to go type in Karen Savage and listen to those books.

Even better than the first ("The Scarlet Pimpernel").

(5 stars)

If you like the first book, "The Scarlet Pimpernel," you are thoroughly going to enjoy this sequel. Wow! It also provides a good look at conditions in Paris during the Revolution. Excellent story and excellent, excellent volunteer reader!

Expression

(5 stars)

I love how Ms. Savage reads--she doesn't feel the need to do extreme voices to the point that they're inconsistent from one book to the next, and at the same time, she retains the brilliant expression of tone and speed that a good reader needs. She's an inspiration.

So Very Enjoyable

(5 stars)

This series was so exciting to a young girl's heart, when at 12 yrs, I watched it on our local PBS station. Listening, brings it's rich details into view, through the prism of mine own imagination.....which is always better than the movie....if I do say so myself... The Volunteer reader, KAREN SAVAGE, knows how to read with an intensity &, pace that matches one's own self-read tempo, which I do, so admire. Hours of enjoyment & several laughs at the dry wit of "Sir Percy".

ok

(3 stars)

It's actually a good story. And the ending is OK. But the whole issue with the actress and Armand not meeting up it's kind of odd. There were several chapters that were dedicated to them and it just ends kind of weird. And I kept wondering about Antone who spoken of at the theater and I expected him to play a role in the story but he does not. It just seemed kind of odd. The reader is excellent. I recommend her to anyone.

Stirring tale of dark times

(4 stars)

A very fine story with wonderfully descriptive writing. But a bit too melodramatic with the hero being so noble, clever and brave whilst the enemies are so despicable and cruel. Still thoroughly enjoyable and just a superb reading by Ms Savage - she is a treasure.

A Masterpiece

(5 stars)

I've read the scarlet pimpernel before but all of Karen Savage's librivox recordings have made it new and fresh a second time. Her voice animation allows the listener to not only hear the attitudes and actions but see them as well. In love and hoping she reads more classics for the enjoyment of others. Thank you Karen and librivox.

i am in love

(5 stars)

Thank you Karen for another fabulous reading! This was my third Scarlett pimpernel book to listen to. I must say that i think i am in love with this brave and daring hero! I can hardly wait for the next one. Listening sure makes cleaning, cooking, ironing and driving go by so much faster. So grateful for Librivox!
