This has been very enjoyable and clearly read. The summary does not do sufficient justice to the story which reflects the part of the history of the French revolution. The narrator, Robert Whitfield executed this task brilliantly

I don't why I had previously resisted this classic tale, however I was totally surprised at the turn in the story and how revenge was being regretted by the Count as it's impact was more than he humanly expected.

The reader's pace was just right and very well delivered and made this very long story very enjoyable

Interesting view

Interesting in many parts, but I struggle to follow all of it and really glad it was on audible otherwise, I may not have found the urge to finish it. There is probably an assumption that all readers will be American and have known the history of the struggle. However I learnt quite a lot about the conditions and constraints of the people. I will try to listen again as it was probably about my inexperience that made it hard to follow. I enjoyed and liked the richness of Prentice's voice.
