When a brute of a man tramples an innocent girl, apparently out of spite, two bystanders catch the fellow and force him to pay reparations to the girl's family. The brute's name is Edward Hyde. A respected lawyer, Utterson, hears this story and begins to unravel the seemingly manic behavior of his best friend, Dr. Henry Jekyll, and his connection with Hyde.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I'm sure this must be a good book but the reader sounds like a guy from community theater trying to do an English accent. Look for this book read by a different reader. I quit after the second chapter

Would you be willing to try another one of Scott Brick’s performances?

absolutely not

Any additional comments?

Can I get a credit to replace this?

Wharton’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel set in upper class New York City. Newland Archer, gentleman lawyer and heir to one of New York City's best families, is happily anticipating a highly desirable marriage to the sheltered and beautiful May Welland. Yet he finds reason to doubt his choice of bride after the appearance of Countess Ellen Olenska, May's exotic, beautiful 30-year-old cousin, who has been living in Europe. This novel won the first ever Pulitzer awarded to a woman.

This is a wonderful but the reader Mary Sarah is so terrible I stopped after two chapters to see if I can find a better reader. Avoid her! She can't speak proper English, never mind French.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mary Sarah?

Imagine Juliet Stevenson

Any additional comments?

I feel like I should get a credit for this bad purchase. I guess I should have read the reviews.
