Despite an excellent narration, this collection of romantic missives of "great men" is hardly a great listen. Turns out that one love letter from a given century sounds pretty much like all the others from that century. The only letters that stood out were those by Napolean, which were memorable for their distinctly abrasive and abusive textures. Best to turn on this collection shortly before bed. That way when you fall asleep while listening, at least you're not behind the wheel or missing an appointment.
Ursula Doyle lives in London where she was, until recently, the deputy publisher of Picador. She is the editor of the book "Love Letters of Great Men".
