pure Forster charm...

Despite the "faithful" film adaptation scoring at the top of my most watched movies, the book gives so much more of this charming English story.
I decided on the audio version because of the Narrator. Juliet Stevenson scores 10 out of 10 each and every time.

Absolutely Delightful!

A beautiful reading. I usually prefer unabridged readings but after loving 84 Charring Cross by the same reader I decided to fritter my credits...And I was well rewarded! It is delightful - download, you won't be disappointed!

bought abridged by mistake

The problem with audible is that you can't return things. I kept thinking something was missing in these characters. The abridged versions should be marked as well as the unabriged. Won't make that mistake again.

Anyway, interesting view of life and a good narrator.

CAUTION: ABRIDGED

It wasn't until I tried to simultaneously read the print book on my Kindle while listening to this audiobook that I discovered to my chagrin that this is an abridged version. RATS!! Many aspects of the story make FAR better sense in the full book, including what exactly happened on that violet-covered Italian hillside, how Lucy felt about George Emerson then and subsequently, how and why Lucy lied to her family and friends and ended up engaged to Mr. Vyse, Charlotte's overt and covert motivations, and why saintly Mr. Beebe would ever lose interest in and snub Lucy and George. Still, it's gorgeous, and until Juliet Stevenson narrates the unabridged version, this is the one I'll return to again and again. She is flawless, so good that her voice for Miss Bartlett sounds exactly like Maggie Smith from the movie, and her Lucy is better--more appropriate to the character--than that of Helena Bonham Carter. This is ideal listening for bedtime, bath time, a leisurely Sunday morning in bed with your lover, or your regular commute. Even abridged, it's a page-turner. Grade: A. Bechdel test: Pass.
