Publisher's Summary

The crumbling summerhouse called Wild Fell, soaring above the desolate shores of Blackmore Island, has weathered the violence of the seasons for more than a century. Built for his family by a 19th-century politician of impeccable rectitude, the house has kept its terrible secrets and its darkness sealed within its walls. For a hundred years, the townspeople of Alvina have prayed that the darkness inside Wild Fell would stay there, locked away from the light.
Jameson Browning, a man well acquainted with suffering, has purchased Wild Fell with the intention of beginning a new life, of letting in the light. But what waits for him at the house is devoted to its darkness and guards it jealously. It has been waiting for Jameson his whole life…or even longer. And now, at long last, it has found him. From the Sunburst and Aurora Award-nominated author of Enter, Night comes an unforgettable contemporary ghost story in the classic tradition of Henry James’s The Turn of the Screw.

Worst narrator, EVER!

What disappointed you about Wild Fell?

The narrator was very robotic. I'm going to try to get it from the public library.


Would you ever listen to anything by Michael Rowe again?

Only if it was another narrator.


Would you be willing to try another one of Gary Dikeos’s performances?

NO!


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The story sounds interesting but I couldn't get past 30 minutes because of the narration.

I went in expecting a scary ghost story and ended up with a ghost story that makes you think. Good stuff. Can't say why for fear of spoilers! :)
