"Collins's mid-Victorian novel is one of the first, and possibly still the greatest, of all literary thrillers." (The Irish Times)
Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys a good mystery. The suspense is built throughout the book and it is really hard to leave and do something else.
I love this book and this is a great version of it. The abridged dramatizations never quite make sense, but here you get the full story. I'm not sure about the voice for Marion, but other than that it works really well (Fosco is fantastic). I listened to this on the commute to and from work and I'll miss it now it's finished!
This has been a favourite read for many years,I love the structure and the different narrators throughout and this has been faithfully re-created in this audio version. I would highly recommend it for anyone who loves a good story, plenty of intrigue and drama whilst remaining very much of its time.
I can't recommend this reading I'm afraid. All of the readers, excepting that for Walter Hartright, were so terribly slow that I actually ended up listening to them at double speed on my ipod. Try another reading of this excellent book.
