Amazing

Stephen Fry could narrated someone killing me and I would still enjoy it. This was a fun and interesting look into the Victorian era and the secrets they tried to keep. I hope they make a second part.

Hilarious History

Turns out that people are people, no matter where or WHEN you are. Narrator has the right tone, sounds knowledgeable enough to be taken seriously, flippant enough so it's not TOO % seriously

A Charming Series on Victorian History

As usual Stephen Fry brings his unique charm and storytelling skills to this series. I have a great love for Victorian history and this was fun, informative and educational. I have recommended this too so many people.

music too loud

lots of interesting Victorian history. I found the music annoying. it was louder than the speaking at times which made it very difficult to understand the story. especially with the thick British accent.

Captivating, imaginative storytelling!

Highly recommend this series - the voice acting and storytelling are top notch! I've listened to it multiple times over as there is so much to learn, yet, you almost don't realize you're learning due to the fact that you're delightfully entertained from the moment you enter this world with Stephen as your guide.

I learned a lot and had some good laughs!

I love history so it was great to learn about Victorians, their fascinating way of life and their
most interesting hobbies.
