"Why Henry James never goes out of style"
This is a wonderful book, and thank you Flo Gibson for contriving charming character voices that transcend the ages. Your English-speaking Parisians come to life instantly, present themselves with dignity and high-minded sophistication.
Listening to the first chapter or so may be a bit daunting for some; the prose is somewhat archaic by today's standards (Not complaining! Love it!), requires some time to get the rhythm, sense the trajectory. But such a sweet story, so insightful and pleasant. After hearing it I went for the print version, intend to read it, too.
The deep dive into character development that generates an aire of highly refined sophistication assisted by disarming self-deprecation and good humor.
I have not but will certainly seek them out.
Vive la difference!
Thanks for a very enjoyable experience.
"Loved reading Portrait of a Lady, but this..."
I'm not sure why I disliked this audio book so much. I found the characters to be annoyingly self interested and ridiculously effusive. Everyone was "exquisite" and "perfect". Made myself finish it.
