Susanna Clarke: The Ladies of Grace Adieu and Other Stories

Read by Simon Prebble & Davina Porter

Whereas Anathem was like good atmospheric music, this was annoying, like being subjected to old ladies gossiping on the bus when your headphones break. The stories did seem interesting and I didn’t mind the readers voices, but it just wasn’t keeping my attention–maybe it was the cadence? Anyway, about 90 minutes into the five and a half hour recording, I gave up and figured I’ll try to read it, but I’ll come back to it later in the year.
