Elizabeth Klett does an amazing job at bringing these wonderful characters to life and recreating all the mystery, suspense and emotion of a well-written, classic story. The storyline drew me in and I kept wanting to hear more.
I love the expression Elizabeth puts into her books and she carries off different accents well, especially if the book is not American based. I have listened to many of her recordings and she is a favourite of mine in her narration. I listen to audiobooks so it frees my hands to knit or iron.
I would highly recommend listening to this book to lovers of classics, mysteries, romance and historical fiction.
Elizabeth Klett is consistent in her work and a "go to" narrator for me. She is outstanding at adding dimension and personality to each character with her narrative style. She's always a pleasure to listen to and easy to follow.
This is a book if mystery and intrigue and keeps engaged and guessing throughout. Definitely a fun and easy read with an interesting twist. I can easily recommend it.
I love Louisa May Alcott's classic novel Little Women, so it was enjoyable to listen to this very different short novel which is more suspenseful and sensational. Elizabeth Klett does a nice job narrating, with British accents for the various characters.
Estate planning lawyer and mom to two boys. My older son liked audiobooks as an infant, and I've listened to a lot since then.
Yes, it was a fun listen. The mystery kept me engaged and yet I also found it relaxing to listen to the story.
Yes, she is a favorite narrator of mine. She has a pleasing voice, and also does wonderful accents and characterizations for the different people in the story. I would recommend her as a reliably excellent performer.
Yes, I wasn't able to but it was a good length to listen straight through. It would make a good one to listen to on a drive.
This is not a "typical' Alcott but I'm glad that I have heard it. Definitely would recommend this.
