Best known for the novel MADAME BOVARY, Flaubert re-examines French society with SENTIMENTAL EDUCATION," here featuring Andrew Wincott's solid narration. Wincott offers commitment and verve as he embraces the broad cast of characters and lengthy exposition. Protagonist Frederic navigates societal complexities and explores the nuances of romance against the backdrop of mid-nineteenth-century France. With a resonant voice and a brisk pace, Wincott admirably presents plot twists and character distinctions, but this audiobook can be challenging, nonetheless. Listeners must keep many names and details clear, and, despite Wincott's immense skill, it can be difficult to do so in the audio format. Devoted listeners will embrace this audiobook, while casual listeners or those testing the waters of the classics may struggle to connect.
