Fiona Hardingham's upbeat, animated narration is perfectly suited to this tongue-in-cheek retelling of JANE EYRE. With obvious affection for the source material, the authors turn the classic into a farcical adventure featuring not only Jane Eyre, but the Brontë siblings, the Duke of Wellington, and some very real ghosts. It's a clever update that offers more modern--if more supernatural--explanations for both Jane and Mr. Rochester's behavior. Hardingham brings the story to life with aplomb, using a variety of accents and voices for the large cast of characters and a knowing tone for the frequent asides on the abysmal state of women's rights in the pre-Victorian era, pop culture, and more. Silly, delightful fun. E.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2018]
