I found this book to be great fun, and read by a talented reader. The basic plot was already known to me (read the plot summary years ago - book published in the mid-1800's), but I greatly enjoyed watching it play out. This book was well written, and the characters well described. The hero made deductions, tried to find proof, and made errors of judgment that sometimes set him back, but then I knew who had done what when I started listening. I had heard of this as being published in the same time period as Wilkie Collins' early books, and was curious. Kim Hicks really brought it to life, and I'm glad that I listened!

Would you listen to Lady Audley's Secret again? Why?
Maybe. It's long.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Lady Audley's Secret?
This is a classic story in the Dumas style. Very "listenable." The descriptions of Lady Audley are wonderful. She is as vivid and real as any venal woman in literature.
Have you listened to any of Kim Hicks’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have not heard her other performances but would definitely buy another
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
At 13 hours, it would have been hard to listen to it in one sitting but possible.

I grew to love the story and the style of writing. It was very well read. I will find another audio book by Mary Elizabeth Braddon.

I absolutely loved this book! My interest was held consistently and I didn't want it to end. Such an interesting story - twisting and turning in unexpected directions. Deeply satisfying!
If you like your books set in Victorian England with a good mystery then this could be for you. My only criticism is it's a bit wordy at times, saying the same thing many different ways. I liked Robert very much and Sir Michael was a kind and gentle man.Really good narrator and all in all a fine listen
I began reading this as it was a requirement for a university class, but began to enjoy the story immediately! The narrator is consistent and interesting, and adds to the fascinating and suspenseful story. Highly recommend.
