Mystery with potential
I'm not in a hurry to read another Newlin Burt novel. The characters ran either hot or cold in a matter of page of narration. Ms. Acitelli did a fair job of narrating this piece. Overall, something wasn't quite right. Perhaps the style of narration did not fit the classic masterpiece mystery style this called for? Ms. Acitelli did keep me listening 'til the very end. Kudos to Ms. Acitelli.
The overall accents for the various characters took away from the narration. I could not tell if the servants were southern negro or lower class English. I believe they were supposed to be uneducated, southern negro.
Nice, articulate, storyteller
I received a copy of this audio via audiobookblast in exchange for an unbiased review.
atmospheric, creepy, mysterious.
I loved the overall gothic feel to the mystery.
I loved Daniela Acitelli's performance of The Red Lady. I liked her accent, expression and tone of voice which I thought complemented the historical nature of the novel. She does a good job of voicing the characters and I would certainly listen to more books narrated by her.
Yes, this book is best listened to is one or two sittings in order to feel the overall creepiness of the setting and to enjoy the mystery unfold.
