Summary

Probably the most shocking of the Brontës' novels, this novel had an instant and phenomenal success and is widely considered to be one of the first sustained feminist novels. A mysterious widow, Mrs. Helen Graham, arrives at Wildfell Hall, a nearby old mansion. A source of curiosity for the small community, the reticent Helen and her young son Arthur are slowly drawn into the social circles of the village.

Enjoyable once you change narration speed

The speed of the narration was too fast. I had to change it from x1 to x0.75 to make it bearable.

lovely company this book is..

this book is a lovely company. nicely read. someone said that they couldn't follow the dialogue because the voices were not too distinct, which is true, but I didn't think it was a problem. I loved the tone of her voice, it suits the style of the novel very much.

A good story ruined by the narrator

The narration of this classic made the entire experience PAINFUL. Although capable of reading, the narrator was not capable of dialogue -- something experienced Audible listeners have come to rely upon. So what happens is this: is it a man? is it a woman? which character is it, pray tell? Only those who have read the book in the past and are familiar with the plot line are able to tell.

I hope Audible will avoid these disasters -- I am wondering how it was selected.

A classic story deserves a more adept reader

How did the narrator detract from the book?

With material that is so well known the reader should check the material. There were so many mispronounced words that I could hardly follow the story in places. Ms. Agliotta needs to get a dictionary and learn how to use it.
