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.
I love books. Love to read them, listen to them, and build my stash of them.
This is a book I completely enjoyed. The performers were very well suited and the story was full of twists and turns so that this is one I would consider listening to again.
Very different read than usual. Very engaging. The author employs different narrators that suit the story and narrative very well, as it is a mystery and has lots of legal involvement. Loved it!
Long but worth the time. Really enjoyed the details of the story. Narration was very good. I highly recommend it.
Excellent multi voice reading of an originally serialised 'thriller' written from the perspective of the characters involved. Remains as captivating today as when written in 1859 (accepting as 'of its time' the novel's characterisation of women).
