If David Shaw-Parker isn't the most subtly funny Duke of Omnium ever, let's give up. The Duke's self-important basso as he courts Madame Max seems to come out of his shoes, and it's an amazing surprise, because by the time Omnium really enters the story, Shaw-Parker has created so many varied characters and voices that you can't imagine he's still got a trick you haven't heard. PHINEAS FINN is a rich comedy of manners and politics. It is also every bit as much a marriage story as anything from Jane Austen, but with a young man from the provinces seeking advancement and security in a world where many women have more money and influence than he. This is a deliciously entertaining listen. B.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2018 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2018]
