Loved the book but the narrator has the most awful pronunciation not just if Cornish name places but it took me a while to realise what she meant about many things “subaltern” for example !!! Rather annoying ..
Where does Manderley Forever rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Not as good as hoped. Some of the details were dubious.. For example....not a mention was made of Daphne Du Maurier visiting Cyprus whilst she was staying in Egypt. Some say that is where she wrote "Rebecca"....her most famous novel!
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Oh dear! The pronunciation of some of the words was awful. Words like "interminable"....you cannot emphasise the "min" surely...? [Interminable].And the pronunciation of the Cornish place names - not great! Quite detracted from the narration overall.HOWEVER - the pronunciation of the French words was great! Credit where it is due....
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I love anything to do with Daphne Du Maurier - so I liked the content but nothing new.
Any additional comments?
A bit disappointed overall.
