Publisher's Summary

Ross Poldark is a heartwarming, gripping, and utterly entertaining saga that brings to life an unforgettable cast of characters and one of the greatest love stories of our age.
Ross Poldark returns to Cornwall from war, looking forward to a joyful homecoming with his family and his beloved Elizabeth. But instead, he discovers that his father has died, his home is overrun by livestock and drunken servants, and Elizabeth, having believed Ross dead, is now engaged to his cousin. Ross must start over, building a completely new path for his life, one that takes him in exciting and unexpected directions....
Thus begins an intricately plotted story spanning loves, lives, and generations. The Poldark series is the masterwork of Winston Graham, who evoked the period and people like only he could, and created a world of rich and poor, loss and love, that listeners will not soon forget.

Hats off to the Screenwriters and Actors

If you could sum up Ross Poldark in three words, what would they be?

Human and a Rock

What did you like best about this story?

The real world ups and downs of the people in this novel. We all have lived a life of good and bad times. Lost love. Family we may or may not get alone with. You can relate to the story and the people in it.

Have you listened to any of Oliver Hembrough’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not and I did enjoy his voice. That is important for an audio book. I will look for him in future.

If you could take any character from Ross Poldark out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Ross Poldark

Any additional comments?

I must say well done to the Screenwriters and Actors who have put the novels in a nutshell and given us all of the people, places and inter thoughts of each person for us to see and love on our TV screen. I love the books and I love the TV show from the 70's and the current one on PBS 2015.

At last!

If you could sum up Ross Poldark in three words, what would they be?

Loved these books since the first airing of Poldark in the 70's. Glad to see them finally made into audiobooks. The reading is well done although I was hoping for Aidan Turner or Jim Dale.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Ross Poldark?

Ross' first visit to Trenwith is so beautifully done. We learn a lot about each character in this scene-Verity's kindness and loyalty, the weakness in both Francis and Elizabeth, the roughness of Charles and the unsympathetic coldness of Mrs. Chynoweth.

Have you listened to any of Oliver Hembrough’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. He does a fine job.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Again in the opening scene. Although he has been delivered a horrendous blow, Ross still manages a toast. In this scene, I see him rising above the pettiness around him. He is already becoming a hero of extraordinary fiber.

Any additional comments?

Where are the rest!!??
