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.

Brilliantly Stephen!

This is Stephen Frey in all his narrative glory. His playful telling of these scintillating stories makes for a very entertaining listen and the facts given to illustrate the truth behind the stories are wonderfully educational! A must-listen to be sure!

very interesting historic work.

it exposes Victorian England with it's hypocritical standard of social discourse and ridiculous starched public visage and mores.

Stephen Fry is a master storyteller...

What a special treat to find out this was free on Audible! Noone tells a tale as well Stephen Fry, and he certainly delivers, yet again, with these illuminating, educational, and totally juicy accounts of the Victorian era! Stephen Fry, you're a gift to the world!

He has a lot of talent

There is a point when one cannot but feel troubled by certain scenes. Fairly good narrative though.
