Even though the lovely Benedict Cumberbatch is narrating this, the story is so repetitive and boring..I get it, Cassanova had lots of sex. Not man, woman or beast was safe near him! Even Mr Cumberbatch's narration could not make me stay with this story until the end. Avoid

I broke my rule and bought an abridged book, because Benedict Cumberbatch was the narrator... and now I need to go and find the rest of this book... I wonder if Benedict Cumberbatch would narrate them...?
Just buy this book, enjoy the experience of Casanova's words and experiences read by Benedict Cumberbatch... "sigh"
But be prepared for the 5 hours to end far too quickly...

What made the experience of listening to Casanova the most enjoyable?
Let's be honest, if you are a fan of Ben, part of the allure is his voice. Does it really matter what he is reading? But the combination of the floral language and Ben's voice is perfect.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Casanova?
I am a wordsmiths at heart and poetic language is my weakness.
What about Benedict Cumberbatch’s performance did you like?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No. This is my soaking in a warm bubble bath audio book. It is a sensual delight to the ears.
Any additional comments?
Just allow yourself the pleasure of drifting into the story and his voice. You will not regret it. Do not use while driving.
And of course it is not the compleat memoirs. Just enjoy the experience.
