THE ADVENTURES OF BRIGADIER GERARD

by | Read by Rupert Degas

Classics • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1894

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle may be best known for his Sherlock Holmes stories, but they were not his favorites. He loved the stories that promoted the chivalric ethos, even if they sometimes made fun of their heroes, as here. Gerard is a cavalry officer who is devoted to Napoleon and is incapable of seeing the world through any other lens. Rupert Degas is reliably excellent as the ego-inflated officer who fails to see the differences between French and English values, remaining fully confident through what most of us would consider the most embarrassing situations. But Degas never loses touch with the man's innate courage, grace, and devotion to his principles. D.M.H. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2011]
