Listeners become immersed in the dramatic days of the French Revolution and the rush to save aristocrats by the League of the Scarlet Pimpernel. Through the narration of Bill Homewood, listeners will puzzle over the identity of the Scarlet Pimpernel, agonize with Marguerite over the fate of the brave hero, and worry about the evil plots of the villain Chauvelin. Though the story demonstrates some sexist views of women's abilities and roles, for the most part, the 1905 work remains enjoyable for today's audience. Further, through this outstanding audiobook, both unfamiliar listeners and those who have worn out their reading copies will experience the story in a special way. V.M.G.
