Fun story and great reader


(5 stars)

This is a great story with action, suspense, comedy, and romance. Very fun and well written. It is also wonderfully read. Karen is a wonderful expressive reader.

Better than I expected


(5 stars)

I began listening to this book and after the first chapter, I thought it wasn't going to appeal to me. However, I came back to it a couple of months later and listened to the entire book. It was entertaining throughout and excellently read. I recommend it to anyone who loves a happy ending.

Incredible little book


(5 stars)

I can't believe ai haven't read this before. It's a perfect storm of adventure, intrigue and romance. 11 out of 10. Absolutely love it. And the tact! I will definitely be on the lookout for more Baroness Orczy books

Very Fun!


(5 stars)

The Scarlet Pimpernel is a tolerably well-written adventure story. If frequently repeated phrases don’t bother you (peremptory, or low, musical voice, or childlike face,etc) then you’ll probably enjoy this book. Once again, Karen Savage is a delight to listen to. I knew she was talented in English accents, so when she proved to be comfortable in French I was quite pleasantly surprised. Definitely recommend!


(5 stars)

Absolutely brilliant reading. Karen Savage pronunciation of all the French words makes this reading. I was riveted like no other librovox title. I have literally listened to this book like 5 times. Ms. Savage you have my eternal gratitude. I have listened to a thousand titles, this was the finest of them all.

Full of Adventure


(5 stars)

Karen Savage was the best reader I've ever heard. She brought this adventure filled story to life. I really enjoyed it and will search for more stories read by her. Well done Ms. Savage.


(4.5 stars)

Karen Savage is amazing. Not knowing French, I appreciate the presumably accurate pronunciation. I will now search out titles read by Karen (I greatly enjoyed another), as one of her fans.

My favorite book


(5 stars)

The Scarlet Pimpernel will not disappoint. It has a thrilling plot and a brilliant writing style. This reader did a phenomenal job bringing it to life.
