Did Not Finish

(2 Sterne)

I got about 1/3 through this and only stopped listening because the narrator, though well spoken, was a little too speedy for me. I liked the stories, but listeners should be aware that they reflect the times in which they were written. There was one sentence that struck me quite forcibly. One of the characters feels guilty about the thought of being ashamed of her aunt and uncle. She wishes she "could hire someone to give her a whipping" for her uncharitable thought. I've got to admit, I did not expect that in a children's book. I think I have a lot to learn about the mindset of Victorian society.

A very very good book
