Publisher's Summary

Fleeing a disastrous marriage, Helen Huntingdon retreats to the desolate mansion, Wildfell Hall, with her son, Arthur. There, she makes her living as a painter. Finding it difficult to avoid her neighbors, she is soon an object of speculation and gossip. Brontë portrays Helen's eloquent struggle for independence at a time when society defined a married woman as her husband's property.

    "Excellent performances "

    Alex Jennings and Jenny Agutter share the credit for this beautifully narrated production of Anne Bronte's powerful novel. The story includes within the framework of a traditional courtship plot an unconventional exposure of the plight of a woman trapped in a marriage with an alcoholic abusive man.

    "Abridged Version"
    What disappointed you about The Tenant of Wildfell Hall?

    My overall review is only 1 star and this has everything to do with the audiobook which claims to be unabridged.The narration is pleasing as far as I have endured to listen, and the story of the original book is excellent.To my disappointment, I started realising that the audio book was missing several parts, as I also have a printed copy which at some points consulted along with the audio. I stopped listening altogether and turned to the print book when I saw that Chapter 28 is almost entirely taken out of the audio book.I feel extremely cheated in my purchase and I will not recommend to anyone who's after an unabridged version of the book.

    "Fantastic stuff!!!"

    I loved this audio book.
    I have just listened to it twice through.
    Truly amazing that Anne Bronte wrote this when she was only in her mid twenties. Published the year before she died, age 28.
    She must have had wisdom well beyond her years. I very much enjoyed both narrators.
    I couldn't stop listening.
    I very highly recommend!

    "amazing book!"

    I have never read any Brontë novels and it is a bit strange to start with this one but it was very well written. the moral perfection in the book could be a little annoying at times but other than than it was great and didn't matter enough to knock a star off

    "No One Should Miss This!"

    Alex Jennings, outstanding! Jenny Agutter, excellent. Together they bring a moralistic Classic vividly to life and make the plot totally convincing. I cannot recommend this 'reading' too highly.
