Reviews

Great Story

(4.5 stars)

Another great story from Baroness Orszy! This reading is by multiple readers. Most of the readers did fine. However, one male reader mispronounced every name in the chapters he read. This was a bit annoying. If he had listened to someone like Karen Savage read The Scarlet Pimpernel first, he would have known the correct pronunciations.

French Revolution- interesting back story

(3 stars)

...Provided an interesting backstory on the unrest leading up to the French Revolution. Engaging and at times tense storyline. Multiple volunteer readers and reading styles frequently pulled me out of the story, but other than that, thoroughly enjoyable.

(0.5 stars)

Reader was so dreadful that I had to give up trying to listen. Such a shame.

Another great Scarlet Pimpernel book!

(4.5 stars)

This was another interesting book of the Scarlet Pimpernel series. I am glad I gave it a chance as some reviews are nasty. I found the reader Ric, who I swear sounds like Wallace Shawn (who plays the short balding 'Genius' from the movie The Princess Bride) to be amusing. Only a few chapters but it had me chuckling throughout them when I couldn't help but keep visualizing him as the reader.

Good story

(4 stars)

another good one by Baroness Orczy. Kudos to 2 of the readers, Lynn and Lila. also, last 2 chapters by Tony done very well. Unfortunately I can't really compliment the others. Bad pronunciations, robotic, expressionless and boring. too bad for such a good book

LibriVox! What were you thinking?

(0.5 stars)

When a volunteer is so very bad at vocalizations, why let the recording ruin a much beloved book? Ric F. Please stop volunteering! I'm disgusted.

(4 stars)

please readers, read aloud as though you are speaking to a friend. It is disappointing to have a good book mangled by poor reading

Lord Tony's wife

(1.5 stars)

Sadly, another brilliant story ruined by appalling reading. Only 5 chapters were well read, by Lynne Thompson and Lilaread.
