Publisher's Summary

“Wake up! Wake up, there! Murder!” A hostler spits out these vehement words while he turbulently sleeps. He is haunted by a phantasm. It is a phantasm with a droop in the left eye, long flaxen hair, and a long buckhorn clasp knife.

    "Too painful to listen to"

    Why does this gentleman think he can perform British accents?!?! He is simply horrible and it makes this too painful to listen to. He is completely clueless as to regional accents of the UK and his attempts are just comically painful at best, racist and insulting at worst. This is the second book I've purchased that is narrated by this man and I have deleted both without finishing the first chapter. Even his "normal" reading is rather bizarre and simply makes it impossible to concentrate on the story rather than to how it's read.

    As with other readings by this gentleman, he mispronounced quite a few words which again takes away from the story. It begins in the first sentences he reads. Simple words like "hosteler" which is pronounced with a silent "h" at the beginning. If a narrator is unfamiliar with a word it's a simple enough thing to look the word up for information on the correct pronunciation.

    The way Mr. Harrison emphasises certain areas and ignores places where emphasis belongs also distracts from the story.

    I purchased this without having listened to the sample and I've learned my lesson! I've also learned to avoid anything read by Mr. Harrison.

    "broken"
    What would have made The Dream Woman better?

    So disappointing! I was thrilled to see a Wilkie Collins story I had never read before, and the narrator captured the perfect tone for Collins, but it becomes unlistenable as the file is corrupted. Apparently this was compiled from a serialized podcast, and the sections not only play out of order, but are jumbled on top of each other, randomly inserting snippets of the introduction.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    the story & narration are wonderful but the file is broken


    Any additional comments?

    I hope someone can fix the file of this delightful story.

    "Great story-poor recording"

    I love Wilkie Collins stories and this is right up there with the best. The narration is very good and keeps you entertained. However the recoding quality is very poor, sections repeat themselves for no apparent reason and makes the story hard to follow. Maybe another version??

    "Horrible audio quality"

    I've listened to several books narrated by B.J. Harrison, and I can't say I'm overwhelmed. Though the performance was rather well-done, the quality of the recording was abominable. The sections of the audio overlapped and repeated over and over again. It's even hard to say that I managed to listen to the whole story!
    So downhearted. :( Beware.

    "a rip off"

    This program is 2 hour repeated twice. Typical of audible's carelessness. They know how to charge a lot but they don't seem to have any money for editors.
