Even more chilling to listen to than to read

Having read this work and written a paper on in school, I found it brought me to an even greater depth of understanding the mental anguish that can be imposed on a person. Although the main character's husband attributes her malady to postpartum depression, we can only wonder if she were suffering from some mental challenges prior. Regardless, the isolation that is forced upon her as part of curing what ails her, only serves to drive her completely mad. Even though I knew the outcome, listening to it being described seemed to bring the wallpaper to life for me. Heidi Gregory did a fantastic job narrating this and brought the character to life. This book reminds me of some of Poe's creepy writings and I would highly recommend this copy of the tale. If you have already read the book, it is still well worth giving it a listen.

Classic.

A classic story with layered meanings. A great short story to keep in your library to listen to again. The narrator did a fantastic job. She has a voice that really matches the feel of the story.

(For full disclosure) I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
