Juliet Stevenson read this novel with magical skill. Everything she reads is brilliantly done.
The novel is one of the great 19th-century novels and deserved a fine reading. I recommend also her reading of the novels of Virginia Woolf.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Said that Juliet Stevenson is one of my favorite narrator, she made sound the heroin, Isabel Archer, like an idiot.Forgive me Juilet I truly love you but a young American doesn't have to sound idiotic, she supposed to be very smart.

What did you like best about The Portrait of a Lady? What did you like least?
I didn't finish listening to this audiobook because Ms. Stevenson's American accent was terrible. I loved her reading of Middlemarch, but she really dropped the ball on The Portrait of a Lady. The characters sounded stiff and two dimensional and overall, the quality of the reading distracted from the story.
