Abridged version

Whilst I enjoyed listening to this version
I was rather niggled that great swathes of the original text were omitted from this Audible title. I would not recommend this title to others.

Wonderfully written story and narration

Where does Rebecca rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best!

What other book might you compare Rebecca to, and why?

The Shining, same dark dreamlike atmosphere centered around a main location, in this case, Manderley (which is almost a character in itself).

What does Emma Fielding bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Subtle and atmospheric, she gets the tone PERFECT.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It brought me in to the main characters world, as if in a fog, beautiful.

Any additional comments?

Wonderful narrator and a wonderful story.

I loved it!

Narrator Emma Fielding did such a good job with this one. I listened to the unabridged version and wished Emma did that too. Anna Massey is pretty good but Emma is better. Oh, the background music is perfect, not overdone.
