I identified with a lot of what Marrianne was writing about.So now I have read it realised I need to sort some aspects of my own life out. Quite painful in a way.But all good.

Well worth a listen

I found the heroine Fanny a trifle feeble to begin with.But she does eventually redeem herself.I just love to listen to the genius of Miss Austens prose.It is captivating in itself. The narrator is very good and brings the characters to life.

I have watched film and tv series countless times ..but what I like about the book is Miss Austin's command of the English language. A beautifully satisfying story

I didn't think the narrator was that bad.I have heard a lot worse. Beautifully written with interesting characters.

I myself worked as a trained nurse for years and am thinking of going back.this book has had a healing effect on me.Beautifully written and at times all I could do was weep.a homage to all the people who work in the NHS tirelessly and the care they give.Many times at a cost to their selves.

A sentimental story but nice to listen to.With a moral of course to make us all think.

maybe because I am older I appreciate Mr Dickens much more.It was probably made so enjoyable by the narrator. So clever,so sublime,so inspirational.A masterpiece.
