Publisher's Summary

Once upon a time, a teenaged Kate Winslet (The Reader, Titanic, Revolutionary Road) received a gift that would leave a lasting impression: a copy of Emile Zola’s classic Thérèse Raquin. Six Academy Award nominations and one Best Actress award later, she steps behind the microphone to perform this haunting classic of passion and disaster.

Thérèse Raquin is the story of a young woman forced into an unhappy marriage to her dull, sickly cousin and smothered by her overbearing aunt. When her husband’s childhood friend enters her life, it leads to a torrid affair that sets her spirit free for the first time, but with shattering consequences. Steeped in the atmosphere of 19th-century France and with a darkly rich foreboding, it is a story that brings out the best of its narrator’s incomparable talents.

“It is challenging, and it’s a heck of a lot of fun as well,” said Ms. Winslet of the recording experience. "As a listener, being able to tune out and be taken into another world, an atmosphere, an environment that is being created entirely for you by somebody else’s voice is really a wonderful, magical thing.”

Thérèse Raquin is part of Audible’s A-List Collection, featuring the world’s most celebrated actors narrating distinguished works of literature that each star had a hand in selecting. For more great books performed by Hollywood’s finest, click here.

“Kate Winslet reads as though she is relishing every morsel of the drama…She clearly loves the book, and her pleasure in the text is infectious…she grabs listeners and doesn’t let go.” (AudioFile)

    "Horrible"
    Any additional comments?

    I love Kate Winslet, but what a horrible story. I had no sympathy for anyone and the awfulness was just piled on top of awfulness. Waste of my time.

    "mispronunciation ruined this book for me"

    I couldn't finish this version of a book I enjoyed many years ago. If I had heard Kate Winslett mispronounce Camille as Cam-ee-ya one more time, I would have gone insane. It had driven me almost to screaming point. Didn't anyone in the course of production know how to pronounce Camille? If she didn't know enough French to get it right, she shouldn't have done the narration.

    "Great narration but very boring story"

    Even the great narration of Kate Winslet cannot make up for this long, overly detailed, depressing story. I never was able to gain much sympathy for the characters and felt like an observer of people I'd never met. I hope Kate will narrate another book as I truly enjoyed listening to her read.
