Editorial Reviews

Wilkie Collins's gothic tale of redemptive love and treachery could not be better suited for an ensemble of narrators, with different characters picking up the story chronologically. Walter Hartright is employed to give drawing lessons to sisters Laura and Marian. He falls in love with Laura, but she's engaged to another. Glen McCready (Walter) and Rachel Bavidge (Marian) are standouts as the moral center of the story. Their characterizations of Laura's arrogant husband, the smooth but untrustworthy Italian Count Fosco, and the nervous Mr. Fairlie are both amusing and exactly right. Combining a convincing cast, gripping dialogue, and a fast-paced plot, this audiobook delivers a captivating experience from start to finish.

Publisher's Summary

A dark and humid night on a London highway… a ghostly woman asking directions… and the reader is away on a tale of deceit, murder, madness, stolen identities and scheming cads, elaborate plots and outrageous coincidences, in the company of some of the most extraordinary characters in fiction. Hailed as a classic the moment it was written in 1859, The Woman in White uses a dozen different narrators to tell the tale of a man’s determination to save the woman he loves, in the face of the worst intentions of the sly Sir Percival Glyde and the magnificent Count Fosco.

A terrific story, well narrated - what a plot!

Where does The Woman in White rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is only my third, but my favourite. I'm not sure how I missed reading this novel, not talked about enough.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Woman in White?

When Marian visits the private lunatic asylum and, instead of finding Anne Catherick, she finds her (supposedly) deceased half sister, Laura! I also enjoyed the atmospheric first appearance of 'The Woman in White' to a very surprised Walter Hartright. Watch out for the appearances of Count Fosco. He is a fine character - an intriguing villain.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No, none of them This had (I think) 6 narrators. This was ideal as the story is told via the accounts of multiple characters. The narrators ranged from very good to excellent.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Good question/s. Laugh *and* cry - and sit on the edge of my seat. It was a roller coaster - it's a sensational "thumping good read", a whodunit with a love element, some tragedy - and a nice bit of social history.

Any additional comments?

Warning: This is an abridged version of The Woman in White at 6 hours 36 mins. I must admit I was disappointed when it came to an end, I wish there was a 10 hour version. There are shorter versions (under 4 hours) and unabridged versions (24 or 25 hours) - but, arguably, the original book was somewhat padded out for serialisation in the Dickens periodical and benefits from some trimming. That said I am now reading the novel - and wouldn't rule out getting hold of an unabridged audiobook version in due course.

Gripping

The in-depth, twisting and turning, old-fashioned mystery was just what I needed while convalescing.
I wasn't familiar with any of the readers but they were all superbly clear and accurate - a real pleasure to listen to.
