One of the best readers

(5 Sterne)

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

(5 Sterne)

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.

Reading is great, if a bit rushed in places. Reader (who does a fantastic job, generally) seems to read especially quickly to connote excitement or action in certain scenes. The book itself is not as good as previous entries in the series. It has the feel of a paid-by-the-word sort of serial—the plot stalls about a third of the way in and just sits there, going on and on with nothing really happening, until the resolution quickly closes the book. Still love that Scarlett Pimp’ though!

Second time through this tale. Lady B is certainly penchant for trouble . This series shows one a style of contempt the English have for the French and done with humor as well. As always Karen Savage has shown herself to be in a league all by herself when it comes to narrative story performance here in Librovox .

great book!!

(5 Sterne)

Keren is doing an amazing job reading as always. the ending was a bit more predictable than in other pimpernel books. chronologically I am confused, but I think this book is best to be read second after the scarlet pimpernel and before El Dorado.

Very good audiobook!

(5 Sterne)

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.

Excellent classic story set in post -French Excellent Post French-Revolution story . I'm not sure if it was so good on the story's merit or because the reader.was so good, but Karen Savage did an outstanding job reading.
