Excellent Book

Where does Agnes Grey rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

So far this is the first audiobook we have listened to.


Who was your favorite character and why?

I found that all the characters were really interesting.


What about Emilia Fox’s performance did you like?

I felt that Emilia Fox was very well chosen to read this particualr book, her voice just seemed to work very well with the period and style.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

At times this book made me thoughtful, and at other times annoyed with what poor Agnes had to put up with. The descripitons of some characters and thier actions could be really amusing.


Any additional comments?

A good book to my mind is something you cannot put down, you just have to start reading or listening to it till the end. Not much could keep us sitting quietly for 80 mins, but this did.
