Gibson has always been my favorite reader so I eagerly approached listening to this audiobook. And I was not disappointed. Gibson gives her usual superb performance. She reads at a lively pace that moves the story along, deftly changes characters' voices, and provides a rich, expressive narration that allows listeners to enjoy Galsworthy's interesting development of characters and to savor his celebration of beauty and satirization of materialism.
