Publisher's Summary

At short notice, Gerald Burleigh Brown is asked to take a deer-stalking holiday in place of his brother-in-law. The old hunting lodge where Gerald stays is miles from the nearest village and surrounded by the forest with its high rocky hills. Apart from getting to know the other people in the house party, Gerald gradually begins to understand and make friends with the local inhabitants. Gerald’s days are spent stalking the “hummel”, a huge hornless stag which proves particularly elusive. Then suddenly an outburst of violence changes the whole nature of his holiday. In trying to protect the girl he's grown to love,l Gerald runs into considerable personal danger.

Final novel by a wonderful author

Nick McArdle does a good job reading this final novel by the author I love best. I find it interesting that he has preformed her first published novel, Peter West and also The House of the Deer, the last novel she wrote. I love the characters in this book, and am so happy that Audible has a number of D. E. Stevenson's works available. I have bought them all. I can only wish that they could make some of her strongest works, from more of the middle of her career available to the public. Suggestions include Five Windows, Spring Magic, Celia's House or Listening Valley. But any D. E. Stevenson is better than none!!

Excellent reading of a very good book

Would you consider the audio edition of The House of the Deer to be better than the print version?

Nothing compares to reading a real book, written on actual paper! But this is a very good audio version.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The House of the Deer?

This is a favorite book...I know it nearly by heart. I don't think I can point to only one mamorable moment.

Which character – as performed by Nick McArdle – was your favorite?

Nick McArdle did an excelent job of reading the charactres. He did the accents well, without being annoying with them or being hard to understand.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

I wouldn't.

Any additional comments?

Love the book. Loved the audible book, though I was very unsure if anyone could pullt it off. Mr. McArdle did, and did it beautifully.
