(Audiobook) The Bloody Chamber

The Bloody Chamber - Angela Carter,  Emilia Fox, Richard Armitage

Wonderful. Simply wonderful.

 

I enjoyed every story in this collection, save for one. The first four were my favorites, with the fourth--"Puss-in-Boots"--the absolute gem of the book. "The Snow Child" was the one I didn't much care for. It was a bit too disturbing for my taste.

 

The writing was lovely, very flowing and lyrical, and in the hands of narrators, Emilia Fox and Richard Armitage, it truly came alive for me.

 

I have to especially commend Richard Armitage here for his narration of "Puss-in-Boots." I laughed so hard at times I had to back up because I had missed some of the story.
