Probably the most shocking of the Brontës' novels, this novel had an instant and phenomenal success and is widely considered to be one of the first sustained feminist novels. A mysterious widow, Mrs. Helen Graham, arrives at Wildfell Hall, a nearby old mansion. A source of curiosity for the small community, the reticent Helen and her young son Arthur are slowly drawn into the social circles of the village.

Overall enjoyed the story, definitely worth listening. Part of my decision to "listen" to the classics and glad to include in my collection and recommend.
This was my first Audible book I have listened to. I enjoyed the warm reading of the story (and the clear pronunciation). The characters came alive by the pleasant voice of the narrator who playfully conveyed the emotions and personalities of each character. I totally enjoyed having the story being read to me as a relaxing way to wind down my days. I look forward to downloading more brooks from Audible and from this narrator.
I don't have time for that. Also, I enjoyed returning to the book at the end of each day so I prefer having it spread out over a week as opposed to listening to it all in one sitting.
I can't imagine anyone enjoying this book because the narrator is extremely poor.
The moment when I decide to purchase a different version of this classic in order to enjoy it. I could not finish listening, the narrator was so bad I had to listen over and over again to understand
articulate, read slower, avoid monotone
The text is complex, because this is not the way we talk today. It is to be expected from a classic.Mary Sarah Agliotta's reading is so monotone and fast that it is impossible to follow the story while doing anything else. You have to concentrate on the book in order to understand. Besides her voice is not even pleasing. I will never listen to anything narrated by this person again,
