Reviews

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!

suspense & adventure

(5 stars)

I started out listening to the dramatic reading version of this book. but gave up because the audio quality was bad. so I figured I would try this version of the book, all read by one person. and a fantastic job she did! I am so glad, because this was a very good story. yes u can figure things out as it goes, but u still sit there and wonder what will happen to lady Blakely and listen intensely as the plot thickens. wonderfully written tale and again, a great job by 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.

Amazing!

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

(5 stars)

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

Great reading!

(5 stars)

This was a very enjoyable, professional sounding reading. Karen Savage has a crisp, expressive voice and really gives it her all. It's almost like having Merle Oberon reading it to you. (Odd--none of the people I know from Waco sound like that...) I'm fairly new here, but The Scarlet Pimpernel is the best audiobook I've listened to on librivox so far. Thank you very much, Karen Savage!

fabulous tale

(5 stars)

This is another classic story, read by a most enthralling reader, a true delight!! I must note that there is a glitch in the chapter "on the track" in that at about 5 minutes before the recording finishes it advances to the next chapter. If you try to you go back to the missed part, it instantly goes on to the next chapter. The time of the recording indicates there are several minutes left, but you cannot access them.
