(5 stars)

I had never read this historical fiction novel and thought it might be somewhat interesting but maybe a little hard to understand. Although I didn't understand all the French phrases following the story line was no problem and I became very absorbed in the story and could hardly quit listening. I highly recommend both this book and the reader!!

The Start of a beautiful friendship

(5 stars)

It is always wonderful to stumble upon a new well written book series, even better when the reader can tackle English to French with such immaculate fluency. These books have mystery, heroics, comedy, the best DANDY, and an interesting historical setting. Karen Savage does the works such justice! A few of the other books are read by others, hopefully you won't be the type to insult their well above average work just because we've been spoiled with Karen.

A Pleasant Surprise

(5 stars)

Having enjoyed several books read by Karen Savage, I knew that this would be a story worth listening to. I was not familiar with the story ( apparently from have lived under a rock), and enjoyed it immensely! A bit of catching up on general history, some nice period details, a fairly strong and admirable woman character, and a clever bunch of characters over all. Very nice! Thank you!

a favorite classic

(5 stars)

This is the third or fourth time listening/reading this book. It is a cleverly and beautifully told story full of fantastic plots, daring characters, and true love, courage, and sacrifice. I would recommend it to any good reader and thinker. And the reader -- Karen Savage is the best reader I have ever heard. Her accents and intonations are beautiful and accurate. I can be never read Sir Percy without hearing her drawly, affected tones... Overall, a masterpiece!

(4 stars)

If she is the smartest woman in Britain then there's not much hope for us! Though this was a lovely little book that reminds us of how we cling to our preconceptions about people and refuse to see the difference of our opinions​ and the truth when it comes to our friends and family.

I’ve been a fan of the Scarlet Pimpernel since I was little; my mom and I watched the movies and when I got my first kindle I started reading the books, so I’d already read this one when I found LibriVox. I love listening to Karen’s reading when I’m relaxing with my yarn and knitting needles (yes, I’m an old soul in a 20 year old’s body). Her pronunciation of the French words is really good and she reads at an even tempo. I hope one of the big audio book companies spots her. She’s a very talented reader


(5 stars)

One of my all time favourite stories, absolutely brilliant!! Karen Savage does the most wonderful job reading, she portrayed all of the emotions and characters to perfection. I highly recommend this audiobook to anyone who loves adventure, romance and interesting storylines. You will fall in love with all the characters and immediately want to read all of the other Scarlet Pimpernel books out there.

karen is a fantastic reader, as ever

(5 stars)

karen savage brings so much to this fun novel, and reading this book is like going to a summer popcorn blockbuster, it's not Shakespeare but its loads of fun, be aware that if you are a fan of this Anthony Andrews/Jane Seymour mini, that you won't be disappointed but they didn't follow the book much at all
