I imagine it is easier to listen to this book than to read. It is extremely long, but the performance was exceptional.
It is a completely different experience
Yes, it was certainly gripping
Everything about this book was excellent. Characters, plot, narration, atmosphere - all spot on. If you enjoy a good gothic mystery, you cannot go wrong with The Woman in White.
Much better than I thought it would be. A few times I was pretty surprised by the turn of events. A little long but kept me coming back for more.
By far the most compelling thing about this audiobook are the performances which are absolutely first-rate.
The fact that it is told in the first-person by a number of the characters, both male and female, was quite interesting. The mystery of the woman in white does carry you along for quite a while and then the mystery of how Hartright will set things right takes over. Unfortunately, the ending is somewhat fortuitous and contrived.
The section which Frederick Fairlie narrates is hilarious.
I managed my way through this period work full of over zealous manners and sensibilities. I was hoping for a much better and gripping mystery but alas I found myself wishing ill on the main characters for the book to end. I wish I'd stopped and switched to Jane Austin.
Recommend if you like complex plot and intriguing characters. Just when I though the puzzle was solved, there would be a new twist.
Variety of characters who often portrayed the thinking of the era. Insight into woman's issues during this period.
Several favorite scenes: included intrigue in castle when sisters were ill and when the villian met his just end.
I love books and animals.I enjoy all sorts of genres, anything from history to supernatural.
This is a great novel if someone enjoys classic novels like Charles Dickens or Oscar Wilde. The author did a fantastic job of creating an entire world with interesting characters that keep you intrugued. It is a subtle mystery, not too shocking but interesting enough.
The structure of the novel itself is also interesting. It is segmented into character testimonies as it progresses, its different and keeps it from going stale since it is such a long read.
The narration is fantastic. There are several narrators that narrate for each individual testimony.
Overall, if you are a fan of classic novels like Charles Dickens or Oscar Wilde then you will most likely enjoy this novel. It is a very long so make sure you really like classic novels before commiting to this novel because it can seem a bit slow at times.
Nurse working at being a nurse practitioner. The only way I have time to read for pleasure is audio books while I drive to work. I have always liked audio books.
Mystery intrigue keeps moving
The mouthy kind of obnoxious daughter that is not very attractive maybe ugly
The way the 1 st character describes his feelings for people and especially his feelings for the more attractive well off sister.
I like the constant connected events
Norwegian, creatomaniac and a lover of fantasy and adventure audiobooks. I usually put one on while I am making whatever takes my fancy.
This book is about love, mystery, secrets and lies.
The different voices bring life and spirit to the different characters and I found myself engaged even though I do not normally like this genre.
The story is at times a bit predictable, but there is enough twists and turns to keep the flow.
I suggest lovers of secrets and lovestories take a look at Woman in White, I think they wont regret it.
from start till the end the story move smoothly ,keeping listener interested and intrigue with plot suspense.
