The Woman in White has been done up as a new "freely adapted" Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, and one review I saw recently said that it's best not to read the book if you want to enjoy the musical! I suppose that can also mean read the book instead!
This lengthy Wilkie Collins mystery is, like The Moonstone, told in first person by several characters, and this audiobook employs several different readers. I always find this enjoyable as a listener, although as someone else mentioned, there are problems with varying quality and volume of the narration (thus four stars instead of five). The story is compelling, and, if one is willing to recognize and tolerate certain Victorian conventions that even Wilkie Collins--who lived a very unconventional life--resorts to in his novels, the Woman in White is definitely worth "reading."
