Eight Cousins

Gelesen von Clarica

(4,638 Sterne; 246 Bewertungen)

This is the story of Rose, a rich but lonely and sickly girl who has been recently orphaned and sent to live with her maiden aunts. When Rose's guardian, Uncle Alec, returns from abroad he takes over her care. Through his unorthodox theories about child-rearing and her exposure to the exploits of her seven male cousins and numerous aunts, Rose becomes happier and healthier, cured of many of her fears and prejudices. She also makes friends with Phebe, her aunts' maid of her own age, whose cheerful attitude in the face of poverty helps to illustrate to Rose her own good fortune. (7 hr 15 min)

Sweet story

(3 Sterne)

Great book. The reader's voice is fine, but the mispronunciation of several words (such as: row, whilst, and bosom) made me cringe.

Nice

A good reader with a few misspelled words. I prefer more expression but she did a pretty good job.

Excellent little story

(5 Sterne)

I enjoyed this story very much. The reader was good, although she did not know how to pronounce some of the words correctly.. Still, it was well read and very entertaining. I will have to look for the sequel here on LibraVox
