A truly wonderful read. I reread it almost immediately as I missed not being involved with all its richly drawn characters. Next time I visit Winchester, the Cathedral will be so much more interesting and I’m impatient to see the needlepoint kneelers and cushions described so beautifully in these chapters. I cannot recommend ‘A Single Thread’ highly enough.

Wonderfull novel.

I was already familiar with Dombey and Son having read it twice before without the accompaniment of this Audible book. I always read the novels in hard copy while listening to achieve maximum enjoyment and in this case the experience has been sublime. John Timpson's reading is excellent and his many voices present these rich characters to perfection. I cannot recommend this audiobook more highly.

I always read the actual book as I listen to the audiobook. Juliet Stevenson's reading has enriched and brought a new dimension to a novel I have read many times. Now I have reached the end I feel an emptiness that is aching to be filled and thanks to Audible I will rejoin Juliet this evening as we embark on Dombey and Son together. I cannot recommend Jane Eyre highly enough. The combined joy of Charlotte Bronte's script and Juliet Stevenson's performance is truly sublime.
