…I listened to all seventeen cantos…narrated by Jonathan Keeble. Believe me when I tell I couldn’t get enough of it. I suspect that you might have the same reaction.

Not only did I hear it out, all twelve discs—I turned around and went back and started listening all over again. That’s how it stole me up—at least the first four cantos. © 2016 Read complete review

…Keeble keeps up with the shifting moods and tones, which range from expressions of pure romantic love to snarky commentary on British politics (and poetic politics) of the 1820s. Keeble doesn’t overstress the rhyme or meter of Byron’s eight-line stanzas and goes over the top with emotions only when the text calls for it. This is, after all, mostly a comedic story, and although the jokes are almost two centuries old, Keeble keeps them fresh. © 2016 Audiofile Read complete review
