Dreary effort

All of the Trollopes on Audible are engaging. But what a sad choice of a narrator for this one. Totally ruins the story. Too much of an effort to suffer through her reading. Sorry: no more Flo Gibson. Do listen to the sample to see if you can stand it before you buy!

A great, almost tragic story of love and deceit

Would you listen to Orley Farm again? Why?

This is a compelling story of great psychological insight. Flo Gibson's reading grows on you, and she carries you along through the turns of the tale.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Lady Mason, who was conflicted by her actions, and comes to realize that ultimately the love for her son was -- well, I won't give it away. It's a powerful portrait of a complicated woman.

Which character – as performed by Flo Gibson – was your favorite?

Perhaps Mrs. Furneval.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

A confession -- to say more would be revealing too much of the plot.

Any additional comments?

I had at first thought Flo Gibson was rushing through the story, but her narration style grew on me, and I began to be under her sway before too long.
