    "Great story-poor recording"

    I love Wilkie Collins stories and this is right up there with the best. The narration is very good and keeps you entertained. However the recoding quality is very poor, sections repeat themselves for no apparent reason and makes the story hard to follow. Maybe another version??

    There are books of the same chemical composition as dynamite. The only difference is that a piece of dynamite explodes once, whereas a book explodes a thousand times. ― Yevgeny Zamyatin

    "Horrible audio quality"

    I've listened to several books narrated by B.J. Harrison, and I can't say I'm overwhelmed. Though the performance was rather well-done, the quality of the recording was abominable. The sections of the audio overlapped and repeated over and over again. It's even hard to say that I managed to listen to the whole story!
    So downhearted. :( Beware.

    "broken"
    What would have made The Dream Woman better?

    So disappointing! I was thrilled to see a Wilkie Collins story I had never read before, and the narrator captured the perfect tone for Collins, but it becomes unlistenable as the file is corrupted. Apparently this was compiled from a serialized podcast, and the sections not only play out of order, but are jumbled on top of each other, randomly inserting snippets of the introduction.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    the story & narration are wonderful but the file is broken


    Any additional comments?

    I hope someone can fix the file of this delightful story.
