When I started listening to the disc I really enjoyed it. Diana Porter is such a great reader and her skill with all the accents is amazing. I have been a bit daunted by the size of the book..28 discs..but have persisted, listening in my company car as I drive around town. After 13 discs I think I'm going to stop listening and move on to more interesting things. I really don't care to read soft porn, romance, etc. I LOVE historical fiction, mysteries, time travel...just not this book. I believe it was really the last 2 discs that did me in. I just don't need the graphic sex, no matter how much romance she throws in. Ick. And from reading the reviews it sounds like it is just going to get worse. Sorry, I know it is a beloved book but give me a real classic historical fiction like Trinity or Shogun anyday over this trashy mix.
