    "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.

    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.

    "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.

    Story
    "A masterpiece!"
    What made the experience of listening to Crimson Peak the most enjoyable?

    Imogen Church, of course! Also, the writing is exquisite, the characters and place so richly developed richly that one feels oneself to be there with them. Imogen Church is a narrator like no other, and this exquisite gothic novel is a wonderful playground for her extraordinary talent.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The quietly sinister development.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the siblings' secret is revealed in the attic.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    There is a film of this book. In fact the book was made of the film; it is a "novelization." I suppose the tag line would be, "Hauntingly exquisite."


    Any additional comments?

    I always look for narrations by my favorite narrator, Imogen Church; and by so doing I have discovered authors I now love. I knew that she had narrated Crimson Peak, but I hadn't bought it, as I am not into ghost stories. Then I, quite by accident, saw a bit of the movie on HBO. It looked fabulous; and I was all excited to have a nice long listen by Imogen, so I downloaded the book forthwith, and was mesmerized for several days, and sad when it was over. Now I will watch the gorgeously filmed, deliciously creepy movie. I will definitely listen to the audiobook again, in the future.

    "Great example of Gothic horror!"

    I love gothic horror, but it so hard to find well-written novels of this genre in present day literature. Crimson peak was a pleasant surprise. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

    "Crimson Peak"

    A thriller from start to finish!!!!! The descriptive writing puts you right in the thick of Edith's emotions and the love and fear she faces. The house is so mournful and deceptive, but a major character of this spectacular thriller!

    Story
    "Great novelization of a movie I was too scared to watch"

    I saw Crimson Peak in the theater... Or I should say I "saw" it since I spent most of the movie with my head literally stuck between my friend's back and her seat, like some kind of ridiculous ostrich. I love horror novels and comics but I am a grade-A chicken when it comes to films that are even remotely spooky. It turns out that no matter how many times friends told me it wasn't really a horror movie, it was still far too horrific for me.

    The novelization has the Gothic romance feel that I couldn't appreciate from the film. I admit I may not have appreciated it as much had I not at least some of the visuals of the movie in mind while listening, but it's a solid, well-written novelization. If any details were different from the movie, I really couldn't say.

    The reader does a great job with Lucille in particular, but her voice is well suited to this sort of 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.
