"They seek him here, they seek him there, they seek him everywhere . . ." Most of us have heard of the Scarlet Pimpernel, but how many have read the book in which the master of disguise first appeared? Well, don't read it—listen to it instead. Ralph Cosham delivers a fine performance of this entertaining classic about an Englishman who rescues French aristocrats from danger during the French Revolution. Cosham gets to play with a range of French and English accents, and does an excellent job of coloring voices with character. He even manages to make the somewhat overwrought writing flow so well that the extravagances go unnoticed. This is huge fun. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 07]
