The Visits of Elizabeth

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.4 stars; 17 reviews)

Elizabeth is a young and naive debutante who is travelling around England and France fom one house party to the next, visiting friends and family, in search of a suitable husband. She is a rather good correspondent, sending her mother letters from all of these places and events. These letters are more shocking and concerning to her mother than Elizabeth might think, however, because due to her innocence the frequent innuendos made by her male acquaintances escape her. - Summary by Carolin (5 hr 15 min)

this is a hoot

(5 stars)

i got a kick outta listening to these letters from young Elizabeth. i SKIPPED the chapters read by the man because, well, they ARE letters from a young lady, but the lady readers did excellent jobs.

Only so so I am sorry to say. It had some funny or amusing parts. For an epistolary that is very funny, try Gentleman Prefer Blondes or Diary of a Nobody.

Jane Austen - the metal version! Very fun and biting! All readers were very good. Especially Minnie sounded perfect for the role, but both Allie and Marta were really great too!

I wonder, have we always been so silly? Well, if so, far less contemptibly then than now.
