Oh, this is fun--a deliciously knowledgeable piece of addictive fluff that is beautifully narrated by Kate Reading. Reading, who performed Willig's two previous books, knows her characters well. For those who haven't yet heard them, the books interweave two plots: the adventures of a saucy, lovelorn contemporary American who is writing her dissertation about unorthodox nineteenth-century British spies and the adventures of the spies themselves. In this book, the spies, whose aliases include the Pink Carnation and the Purple Gentian, are out to foil the 1803 Irish Rebellion. Reading perfectly captures the story's effervescence and adds clear, quick pacing and character-revealing voices. She also does believable renditions of various American and British accents.
