The power of a great story never fades, and this book is no exception. What makes it even better, though, is Maureen O'Brien's superb narration. She virtually inhabits the text, making it believable and alive. Her British accent and crystal-clear diction lend weight to the story, and her pacing is impeccable. O'Brien takes the author's cue and eases us into the book, but she makes it clear early on that her Jane has life and vitality. As we move further into the story, her voice becomes more assured, and she injects passion and gravity into the other characters. She truly acts the book, and the result is an intellectual and aural feast. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 01]
