The love story.
So hard to choose just one!
No, but I will seek them out. They were wonderful!
I gasped in surprise several times !
I was sad that the story ended. The characters were very well developed.
I had never heard of this book, but purchased it based on the good reviews it got. It didn't disappoint! It had an engaging storyline, and I found it to be very unpredictable. You'll love the characters.
odd is good
some, its a soft calm mystery. i listened while i was sewing. just a good well written story.
no, they were excellent
Life's good when I am listening to a great book.
I know many readers loved this novel but I was interested for the first third. In the second third of the book, I was getting eager to gain a little info to resolve the puzzle and became increasingly frustrated as I waited for details to emerge. In the last third of the book, I just plain gave up. It was a book with a lot of build-up and the resolution was like a dud firecracker, nothing. The quality of the writing is well-done victorian style but it's a "go nowhere" book as far as I am concerned. I would like my time back. The reader was good and I gave it two stars for the very intriguing first third of the book and the beautiful descriptive writing.
I have trouble getting to sleep at night and this audiobook put me to sleep every night within 5 minutes.
Joesephine's performance had a very clipped unemotional voice that made it hard to be involved with the characters. Simon's performance was better but still not very inclusive.
Nothing is ever going to top this one. Real characters, not just stick figures. I felt real dread of the sort that only great writing, not sensationalism, can produce. Even where I sort of saw what was coming, it had twists I did not expect - the most satisfyingly baroque plot ever.
Much better than the more highly regarded Moonstone, which was cute but not nearly as deep or satisfying.
I'm picky about readers but this was masterful. Agree with the few quibbles about Fosco's accent but minor.
It was like a long-winded fairy tale! I so enjoyed this mystery. It is extremely long but worth the time I invested.
What a mind, what a soul, what a craft constitute this utmost masterpiece of literature. From the prose to the characters to the sui generis, overwhelming story, The Woman in White bears witness of the superior intellect and talent of Mr. Collins at its best.
It is a masterpiece cleverly constructed to the depths of creativity, unsurpassed intelligence, and beautiful prose.
It is a story that behooves every individual who indulges in the art of words and life to read.
This book started out slowly . I tried to listen to it 2 or 3 times without interest so I left it for several months. Finally, one day I was desperate for an audio book to listen to so I tried this one again. I must have been in just the right frame of mind because it finally sparked my interest. The narration is done by Josephine Bailey who performs the different women very well and Simon Prebble who performs the more difficult men but also very well. The story drags a bit on occasion but overall was fairly enjoyable. It was quite different in the way it was narrated and took some getting used to but after all was said and done I look back and realize I enjoyed it quite a lot, especially the way it ended!
