One of the great Regency novels is brought to life by British actor and narrator Robert Hardy. Filled with misfortune and betrayal, this classic work has no shortage of characters to keep you on your toes. Hardy is excellent at portraying the many personalities--ranging from the sentimental and witless Amelia Sedley to the manipulative and worldly Becky Sharp. The abridgment can feel choppy at times, but Hardy's exuberance keeps the listener on track. It's best to give this audio your undivided attention; otherwise, you may miss the many changes of scene.
