Narrator Kate Reading's velvet voice and English accent set the stage for this delightful interpretation of Shakespeare's TAMING OF THE SHREW as a Regency romance. The reputation of outspoken Cassandra Pomfret is already in danger of ruin when the handsome but reckless Duke of Ashmont causes an accident that leaves her without a chaperone. Reading boasts a range of lively character voices, including spot-on portrayals of the headstrong Cassandra and the repentant Duke that bring out the nuances of their growing attraction to each other. Reading also does a splendid job highlighting the sly power struggle among the socialites. This stellar performance by Reading is a luxurious listening experience for lovers of Regency romances and the English language. M.F.
