Chapters vs Episodes

I would of gave 5 stars overall but it irritated me that there was no way to have the episodes play consistently. Instead of continuing to the next episode as if it were the next chapter, it comes full stop and you have to fart around to get to the next one. A playlist option would be nice so I dont have to drop what I'm doing to queue the next up.

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.

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.

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.

Fascinating

Very interesting exploration of the occasionally dark underpinnings of Victorian life. Fry’s interest and joy in discussing these topics is evident and drags the listener into these back alleys and opium dens with him. Would recommend to any lovers of history and those who appreciate a good scandal.

I thoroughly enjoy British history. This gives you great stories that you may not have heard before. The performers and music take this audiobook to the next level. Very well done!

I love Fry!

His voice is engaging & to be honest I’ll listen to him read whatever tickles his fancy!

the very first one is about torturing a baby.

No, with a side of no, and no on top. How is this entertaining? Horrible.
