Scaramouche

Gelesen von Gord Mackenzie

(4,824 Sterne; 159 Bewertungen)

Scaramouche is a romantic adventure and tells the story of a young aristocrat during the French Revolution. His successive endeavors as a lawyer, politician, actor, lover, and buffoon lead his enemies to call him "Scaramouche" (also called Scaramuccia, a roguish character in the commedia dell'arte), but he impresses many with his elegant orations and precision swordsmanship. The later film version includes one of the longest, and many believe, best swashbuckling sword-fighting scenes ever filmed. (17 hr 11 min)

Great story, superb reading.

(5 Sterne)

Easily the equal of Tale of Two Cities and more morally sophisticated than The Count of Monte Cristo, this book is a great swashbuckling romance. Gord Mackenzie reads this so beautifully. His reading is always engaging and never overpowers the story. Bravo and thanks. Highly, highly recommended.

Great story

(5 Sterne)

I really enjoyed this story. Andre-Louie is a young man of noble bearing but unknown birth who is raised by his godfather. When his friend is killed in a duel with M La Tour d'Azyr for having a 'dangerous way of speaking', he swears he will have revenge by making sure his friend's words are repeated everywhere in France. This is part of the spark that starts the French revolution. However, Andre-Louie is destined to cross paths and swords with M La Tour d'Azyr over and over again, until the spark that started the war between them is finally resolved. The reader is excellent, great voices, great reading, very high-quality recordings. Thanks!

Kudos to Gord Mackenzie

Excellent reading of a great story... I expected an adventure/romance & was surprised to find philosophical & political discussions interspersed throughout the book-- especially at the end, the ambiguities of seemingly clear-cut issues are left for the reader's consideration rather than presenting resolution

fantastic!

(5 Sterne)

Gordon has fantastically performed a wonderful story! He has made a book that is very well written turn out to be even better performed. Even if you have read the book yourself, I encourage everyone to listen to this audio performance by Gordon!

Awesome.

(5 Sterne)

An engaging story, fabulously read.

An excellent recording

(4 Sterne)

A strangely Mary-Sueish book in which the hero is excellent at everything. Going in, you need to remember that murder is mortal sin. The reader when the book was originally released would have seen the main character’s temptation to kill the man who murdered his friend as the great obstacle to be overcome. If you go in with the expectations of modern American drama, the author’s clever way of preventing fatal confrontations between the protagonist and antagonist just seem like weird twists.

great romance on the backdrop of the french revolution

(5 Sterne)

Against the backdrop of the french revolution, this story follows the adventures of our hero, Andre-Louis. There is romance, revenge, courage and leadership, action, and finally forgiveness - all over the fascinating canvas of France, just before the revolution. It is a very moving story by Sabatini. The reader is excellent: different voices based on nature of the character, tone and inflection varying with the mood, and good french pronunciation. Don't miss it!

Bravo from Borneo

(5 Sterne)

Bravo! Bravo! Magnificent! What a truly wonderful classic and so beautifully read by the narrator...now one of my favourite narrators. This is a first class book to explore the French revolution and the turmoil and conflict of the time. The character development is exquisite...just like the language used. Give yourself a treat and listen to this delightfully crafted book.
