Get this book now. It's pure pleasure from beginning to end, with one of the best narrators I've ever heard. Engaging, suspenseful and full of humor and tenderness, "The Small House at Allington" is GREAT.
This is a good book, but each chapter has been put on twice, 1, 1, 2, 2, etc. This is annoying
This is a great book. People who say it "isn't much" and who didn't like the ending were I'm afraid not too perceptive.
Perhaps they didn't notice that the narrator was unreliable, or didn't perceive the theme of class in the UK, they just thought it was a ghost story where the ghost isn't identified finally.
I loved it! Get it! great narration too from Simon Vance, as usual.
this should have been an easy and charming book to listen to. Sile Bermingham, however, ruined it for me.
First of all, puzzlingly, she reads in an American accent for all the Irish characters.
Much worse than that is her "Polish" accent which is so stilted, incorrect and just UGLY that I found it impossible to listen to. Also a pair of twins show up that talk exactly like robots! Why???
I turned it off after a few hours. I couldn't keep on having my ears assaulted. it's too bad...
this is amusing for a little while, but not for long. it's disturbingly sexist and the unlikeable characters aren't worth following..
