Publisher's Summary

The fourth novel in the legendary Poldark saga.

Warleggan is the fourth novel in Winston Graham's sweeping series of Cornwall, Poldark. Cornwall 1792. Ross plunges into a highly speculative mining venture which threatens not only his family's financial security but also his turbulent marriage to Demelza.

When Ross and Elizabeth's old attraction rekindles itself, Demelza retaliates by becoming dangerously involved with a handsome Scottish cavalry officer. With bankruptcy an increasingly real possibility, the Poldarks seem to be facing disaster on all fronts.

    Very reluctant walker for fitness made less so by addictive audiobooks. I like family saga, thrillers, memoir and biography.

    "Nasty George! Great read (listen)"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, because they will be entertained


    What did you like best about this story?

    I suppose the fact that you can visualise all the scenes, including the weather and time of day, and what the sky's doing, very well.


    Which character – as performed by Oliver J. Hembrough – was your favourite?

    Caroline Penvenen was great


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

    Not really, I like to space it out as much as possible


    Any additional comments?

    Oliver is great, but the lady who read Demelza had the edge on him I think

    Story
    "Compulsive listening!"

    Oliver J. Hembrough has nailed the narration of Warleggan. Maybe I've become accustomed to his female voices, especially that of Demelza, because this performance seemed very smooth and drew me in completely. I was able to immerse in the story without being jarred by male overtones for my romantic heroine. I think this is a very talented performance.

    The storyline continues to be excellent, as we tumble through the Poldark family highs and lows (Ross, very bad, you fell of the pedestal there!). My only complaint is that I have to wait for the next instalment... Let it be soon (and let it be Mr Hembrough as narrator)!

    "Warleggan - brilliant"

    What a fantastic book. I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to it. It has made me smile many times but also made me sad. Will listen to it many times over the coming years.

    "The Rise of Warleggan"

    The Poldarks go from bad to worse as Warleggan becomes a dominant figure in this novel. This book is beautifully done and Oliver J. Hembrough is an excellent narrator. Ross's misfortunes does pull you down and it is like nothing is going right for him but hang in there, there is a silver lining to his mining efforts, well not quite silver.
