North and South is more than a "classic romance". It gives a good perspective on how working together and having compassion for those who surround us can make us deeper as a person. Each time I read or listen to this novel, I feel moved by the characters. That would be Elizabeth Gaskell, her talent for writing is great! Yes, this does have a good love story; however, seeing that classes of people from all walks of life can worked together is what we need today. It would hurt to echo some of its life lessons. It's a great novel! I wouldn't pass this one up if you are debating listening or reading it. It would be very much worth your time!!
Narrator did such an amazing job with the voices! Will be looking for more books read by her!
Exceptional book, didn't want to stop listening! If you like Jane Austen, you will love Elizabeth Gaskell!
North and South is probably Elizabeth Gaskell's best novel. However, many have compared it with Pride and Prejudice and even praised it was better. I'd beg to differ; Pride and Prejudice is still above North and South though it is still worth the read.
The performance was incredible. At times, I could not believe this was all being read by one person! Every character sounded different. It was very well done!
First saw this as a mini seriez thru amazon prime. Loved it so 8 decided to read the book. Loved it as well! Juliet Stevenson doez an awesome job at narration. Would highly recommend to anyone who likes period pieces
I love to read books--mostly YA, Classics, and sports romances. I also love to fangirl about books on my blog, Burning Impossibly Bright. :)
The story was fantastic and the reader made it even more enjoyable! I already can't wait to listen to it again! :)
Juliet Stevenson magnificently narrates Elizabeth Gaskell's classic novel. Her brilliance as an artist is masterfully portrayed in the use of dialect and accent to portray individual characters.
