Narrator creates the listen

This is so melodramatic that it plays as camp to contemporary ears.(Probably sounded camp to many in its day!) Stevenson - a great narrator - manages to read the novel so to keep it entertaining, even delightful.

I don't know if I'd tackle the unabridged version, but this version is a period treasure for the $5.95 price!

very well done

This is a classic 19th century thriller by a woman who was a best-seller in Jane Austen's day - and it's terrific. The abridgement makes the story cleaner and the reader is very engaging, able to render all the voices (including the men) memorably. For a 150 year-old book, this one's a winner.
