Summary

Dumas' novel became one of the great love stories from its first publication in 1848. The title role of the consumptive heroine and her ultimate sacrifice inspired actresses from Sarah Bernhardt to Greta Garbo and led Giuseppe Verdi to write La traviata. In the hands of Nicholas Boulton, the story of passion and conflict is as fresh and moving as when it was first written.

Infatuation, Jealousy, Distrust, Drama, Money

First off the 5 stars goes to the awesome Nicholas Boulton. He could read the Yellow Pages and I'd swoon.

Camille? Let's say, I did listen to it all. It is written in the first person, a dialogue of two men. Armand, 24 years old, former law student and fop about Paris is enamored with sickly and terminally ill Margaurite, age 23. She's got an old sugar daddy and is always looking for younger men to "entertain." She and Armand "fall in love" in 36 hours of meeting each other and there are 10 chapters of this 36 hours. Love, jealousy, regret, forgiveness, money, betrayal, more jealousy, and zoom it jumps out to 4 months later. Armand is as much of a drama queen as Margie. And of course he doesn't see her upon her death and woe is he, but he tells the story of their tragic love and lives to a complete stranger. Just sweet kisses, no touchy feely, no sex, it's implied with the term "lover."

Again, the only thing good about it was hearing Nick Boulton read it.
