Charming!?


(3 stars)

The reader is excellent! She reads with expression and I enjoyed the different voices for different characters. her performance was, in fact, charming. As for the story... I enjoyed it but did not like the final part of the book. If you prefer for scheming rascals to get their just desserts this may not be the book for you. How infuriated I was at some of the characters and circumstances is probably a testament to how good the author is though. Overall it WAS a well written book, just not my cup of tea.

Well-written, but tragic


(5 stars)

It IS a very good book which made my cry. The ending is tragic, but it is well-written and deep. The first half is very classical and nothing tells that is will become so sad and emotional.


(5 stars)

excellent reader! It's an undeservedly little known novel with well-drawn characters, sharp wit, and relentless skewering of hypocrisy and pretension. it's a novel of manners with a Dickensian ending.


(5 stars)
