In narrating this unique and brilliant work, the world's most sensuous, most physical, and finally, most bourgeois novel, Davina Porter performs not only superbly, but without flaw. Her voice is rich, fluid, precise and enthralling, wonderful in both narrative role and those of the many characters, upon whom she bestows body, presence and personality. Her pronunciation of French place names is pure music. Emma is at once beautiful and corrupt; tragic and banal; naive and damned. Each word in this novel is exactly the right word and it cannot be read inattentively. Porter's performance demands equally vigorous participation from the listener.
