The reader has such talent in changing her voice for each character that you can tell which character is talking without even being told. She can portray all the male voices equally as well as the female characters. The book itself, although a great story and moral tale of double standards can often be a bit depressing. It is a great classic story though.

I wish I could double my five stars. I loved this book. It has such intense emotions, twisting plot, beautiful portraits of country life 200 years ago (almost) and breath-taking sentences. What amazing writing, where one sentence carries you through several philosophical problems that seem to emerge from a simple country observation. And the reader is amazing, she does so many different accents. This is one of my very favorite books.

The narration is acceptable - the accents and characterisations are good, though when speaking as the narrator the reader tends a little towards 'intoning' and doesn't sound quite natural. The most annoying thing, though, is that the editing has been done very carelessly and pauses at the end of sentences and paragraphs are sometimes omitted, making it sound odd, and even occasionally the end of a sentence is cut off completely - I've gone back several times to listen again to see if I was mistaken. So far I've been able to work out the missing words, so it hasn't affected the story too much, but if I had paid full price for this I would be making a complaint.

one of those books i.l read again. tragic but unable to put it down. wonderful
It is rare to find true love, and here again, we hear the story of a man (this time), who found true love, but didn't recognise it until it was too late. What an amazing girl, Tess is. You fall in love with her from the moment she is introduced. Frustrating at times, but a true hero in every sense. A fantastic memorable read.
