    "Loved this Gothic Novel"

    I saw the Crimson Peak movie and really feel in love with the story. I sought this novelization to get more detail into the characters thoughts & feelings. This performance did not disappoint! Upon finishing this book, I again saw the movie with greater insight. My experience was enhanced, and I appreciated the story, setting, and cast even more. Guillermo del Toro is a master, his movie is now one of my favorites.

    This novelization is very well done, I felt completely immersed in this audio book, every detail available. Imogen Church is superior.

    "Crimson Peak with a twist..."
    Any additional comments?

    I am not one for scary, suspenseful novels, but I was intrigued by this one. I enjoyed the storyline, though slow in some parts. I was pleased with the characters throughout the story. Additionally, I am a huge fan of Imogen Church's narratives. She has a way of bringing each character to life.

    "Excellent"

    I began reading this with the impression that it would be a ghost story, but it was so much more than that. The characters had such depth, and the plot was beautifully delivered. Great read for the Halloween season, or if you're simply in the mood for a darker tale.

    Story
    "Entertaining Gothic Ghost Story."

    The author created the gloomy foreboding mood for this early 20th century ghost story with quite a deft touch, pulling me along page after page (if that is term when you listen to an Audiobook). Even though I suspected what might come next, i was compelled to follow along as our heroine found her way. That's good storytelling.

    I've not yet seen the movie, and cant speak to how it aligns with the book; however, from the few clips Ive seen - i am thinking (and hoping) quite well.

    I recommend this book, unreservedly.

    I have a quilting business. Since I love to read, I cannot read a book and quilt at the same time. Now I can listen to books and quilt too.

    Story
    "A nice Surprise"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Crimson Peak to be better than the print version?

    I have never read the print version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Edith


    What does Imogen Church bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    For the most part I did enjoy the narration. But in a few instances I felt the 'reading' was a bit choppy.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    In the beginning...no. But once Edith decided on her future...yes, I wanted to see what was going to happen next.


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened/read better books in this genre, but I did enjoy the book and I am glad I used the credit. The characters matured and you got to feel them and how they felt...in the story.

    "Creepy!"

    An interesting gothic, ghost horror story. There were twists to this that kept me listening to the book. It is not a book that I would listen to again, but I enjoyed it.

    Story
    "Voice acting as haunting as the specters"

    The voice acting started out roughly, with mix ups of character voice style and male affectations that seemed forced and unnatural. However, the narrator absolutely devastates (in a good way) in her rendering of scenes of horror. Her telling became so engrossing that I could not stop listening. Fantastic reading!

    "Fantasic"

    I have thought many movies should be books considering that there is probably plenty of inner conflict with a character, this is such a movie. The book adds wonderful depth. the only thing that thew me off was the performance.

    Story
    "Wonderfully descriptive and creepy."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to anyone who loves ghost stories and thrillers. the 'Twist' was a bit easy to see coming but it didn't make it any less enjoyable at all. I will sit down to watch the film after listening to this book and i know i'll listen to it more than once.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favourite character was the house; It seemed to have its own oppressive role to play and the descriptions of the rooms were wonderful. The other charecters were all well written and drew sympathy at points. The main villain when revealed was written well and the action was well conveyed


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The end scene, its action was almost palpable.
