I have gotten the unabridged version from my library (on tape) in the past, it was so much better. The abridged version leaves SOOOOOO much detail out that you miss much of the story and its hard to follow. You are better to hold off until Audible gets the unabridged version.

I loved this story when I first read it and was a bit disappointed with the adbridged version, since it really leaves out so much detail.
If this is your first time with this story then you should love it.
But, please Audilble.com, please get the Unabridged version!

Where does The House on the Strand rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I read this story as a book several years ago, so could remember a lot of the plot, but still thoroughly enjoyed this as an audio book. An unusual story, and good historical detail.
What did you like best about this story?
The historical detail and the area descriptions, which are very accurate - I used to live in the area, so can recognise all the places described.
Which character – as performed by Michael Maloney – was your favourite?
No favourite, all are good
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Just a little sadness at the ending.
Any additional comments?
Pity that this is an abridged version, and I did find the music an annoyance - I would have preferred Chapter 1, Chapter 2 etc

I read this book for the first time when I was just around 20 years old. It is still my favorite and I keep returning to it to read it again although I am now 50 years old. It made such a deep impression, by transporting me back into time through time travel, that it left a kind of longing to go back into the story. For years I have tried to find other stories like this one, but so far without any success. Probably one of its kind? Today I took it of the bookshelf again, it has been a few years since I read it last, so I guess it is time again for another read. Never read any other books from duMaurier. Will have a try and see if she wrote anything else like this beautiful House on the Strand from 1969 (Dutch version).
