One of the best readers
Karan's reading is excellent. Surely she's a professional doing some pro bono work. If not, we should find a way to get this most talented volunteer into the biz.
Great story, Excellently Read
Karen Savage is by far the best reader I've heard on LibriVox! I'm always very happy to find titles read by her. Especially when there're French words to read, she doesn't stumble at them, but glides right through with perfect accent, cadence and intonation. And her expression and and skill of reading are so perfectly pleasant, very engaging, not droning monotone, not overly dramatic or with awkward forced voicing. Super high quality. The Elusive Pimpernel is very good too - a great balance of history, adventure, intrigue and romance. And it's accesible...not too heady, and doesn't require too much active thinking to follow and stay engaged.
Terrific continuing saga of Sir Percy Blakeney & the lovely Margarite. The LibriVox Volunteer, Karen Savage does a good job, though I wonder about her accent. Could Texas be rubbing off on her a bit? Hahaha...
I only listen to the versions read by Karen Savage. She brings these books alive and has energy throughout the book. I love the Scarlet Pimpernel series!
A pretty good tale. Not as interesting as "The Scarlet Pimpernel" (the first) or "Eldorado" (another sequel), but it's always fun to spend time with Lord Percy and Marguerite, especially when they are yet again fouling Citizen Chauvelin.
This may be the very best of the Scarlett Pimpernel's books. The author took Sir Percey past normal. Thank you , Kim Savage. Your reading made the book great.
Top quality recording
Wow! I can't believe Karan Savage records on a volunteer basis. The quality is better than many professional audio books that I've listened to. Definitely one of my favorites.
Very good audiobook!
As always Miss Savage is very good reading English and French, so this is a very good audiobook and it is read wonderfully! The story is not as good as the original Scarlet Pimpernel, but it is a nice sequel.
