Worth it for the discussion of toilet paper alone. Das viktorianische Zeitalter bt auch im 21 Jahrhundert noch eine gro e Faszination auf uns auf die Welt ver nderte sich im Zuge der industriellen Revolution dramatisch und brachte nicht nur auf dem Gebiet der Literatur unz hlige gro artige Werke hervor Die Viktorianer gelten dabei als besonders pr de, wir haben sicher alle die typische Mode vor Augen, insbesondere Frauenk rper wurden unter hochgeschlossenen Kr gen, kn chellangen Kleidern und starren Korsetts verborgen Doch stimmt unser Bild von den Viktorianern In dem circa siebeneinhalbst ndigen Original Podcast von Audible r umen die Autoren John Woolf und Nick Baker mit unserer landl ufigen Vorstellung von der Verklemmtheit der steifen viktorianischen Briten auf, denn tats chlich wurde unser Bild von den Edwardians gepr gt, die dabei nicht das komplette viktorianische Zeitalter ber cksichtigten.Und wer w re besser geeignet, die mitunter delikaten Geheimnisse vorzutragen, als der geniale Stephen Fry, der ja nicht nur schon Oscar Wilde gespielt hat, sondern auch wie auf dem Cover gezeigt wunderbar in die Rolle des viktorianischen Gentleman passt.Unterst tzt wird er von einer Reihe von Schauspielern, die die jeweiligen Sprechrollen bernehmen, sowie von einer Reihe von Wissenschaftlern, die uns die Fakten zu den ausgew hlten Geschichten liefern Allerhand interessante Themen werden in den 12 Folgen besprochen, etwa die Sache mit den S ancen, sanit re Einrichtungen, Homosexualit t und lesbische Liebe, Pornografie oder die Bartmode Dabei geht es insbesondere um Dinge, von denen uns Charlotte Bronte oder Charles Dickens eher weniger erz hlt haben Das H rbuch ist daher besonders f r Liebhaber viktorianischer Literatur eine sch ne Erg nzung, die mit viel Humor gew rzt ist.Gut gemacht, unterhaltsam und witzig, rundum gelungen eine eindeutige Empfehlung f r eure Ohren.

Stephen Fry s Victorian SecretsAn Audible OriginalBy John Woolf, Nick BakerNarrated by Stephen FryWhat a fun book This has all kinds of crazy facts about the Victorian era, mostly the scandalous stuff It was certainly not boring Things from strange daily life secrets to group underground meetings.all quite the no no back then, some might be scandalous even now I found the whole book fascinating Audiobook 196I dont know what I liked better Stephen Frye or the Victorian presentation Not much about life on this period was left out. I m going with 4 stars with Stephen Fry s Victorian Secrets Do you want to know why beards were so popular during this period What about how bathrooms and the first sanitary system was developed Want to find out about the first female serial killer in Britain I enjoyed all the history information along with the taboo secrets set during the Victorian Age Stephen Fry is wonderful as a narrator and I was not bored once while listening to this audible original.The book covers topics such as sexual orientation, Sherlock Holmes to the Victorian s being obsessed with freak shows I learned information about how asylums were brought about and the secrets of how people were admitted.Definitely an interesting and entertaining read Audible OriginalAh the Victorians, so tight lipped, buttoned up and proper, while behind closed doors there are so many dirty secrets to be guarded.This has the feel of a podcast with interview snippets of authors who wrote about specific topics in the Victorian era, some re enactment of historic diary entries and of course the delightful commentary of Stephen Fry.From sexual deviations, which today won t raise an eyebrow, to cosmetic rituals, the birth of freak shows, the first recorded female serial killers and everything in between It even includes an in depth look at Arthur Conan Doyle which could have been omitted as I found that section quite boring.It s equal parts informative, scandalous and enlightening and if you have an interest in this era then this is for you. I have now replaced the voice inside my head from Morgan Freeman to Stephen Fry He could read an instruction manual, and I would find it compelling Choosing him as presenter for this Audible original is a stroke of genius Victorian Secrets is a quirky exploration into the society of Victorian England at the end of the nineteenth century It features the work of many historians, and exploring many aspects of the period spiritualism, sexual practices, crime, hygiene, etc The chapters are short, but are bound to both inform and entertain you There are interviews from experts to help to explain the facts, as well as some dramatized bits where the actors make the stories come alive My only complaint is that I did not like the background music I find it very repetitive and distracting.I had a ripping time, and I was sad when it ended It did whet my appetite to find current information of bygone time periods so I hope Stephen Fry and Audible are on board to deliver another series or even expand on Victorian history This was my Audible Original pick of the month The best things in life do come free Stephen Fry could narrate the Ikea Catalogue and I would probably rate it 4 Stars He just has that ability to entertain and the material doesn t really matter all that much This is a mildly entertaining series of talks on life in Victorian England that s made great by Stephen Fry s charm and wit.
