Author relays diaries

Listening to Mr.Bennet himself relay his diaries is fabulous - the magic touch that brings audibles to perfect life. I'm glad he values us, the listeners, to narrate himself so we get the very best interpretation.

I enjoyed being able to share his life's ups and downs - finding the diaries highly amusing - especially the tales against himself.
