Didn't finish it!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The story was relentlessly depressing - and I'm a fan of Du Maurier!

What will your next listen be?

Something epic that I can lose myself in.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Maureen O'Brien?

I don't think it would have mattered who read it - it just didn't grab me.

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

Not really!

Any additional comments?

It's the only book I've bought that I couldn't finish. All the others have been great.

Would you try another book written by Daphne Du Maurier or narrated by Maureen O'Brien?

I am a great fan of Daphne Du Maurier so would always try another of her books. Narration was good.

What was most disappointing about Daphne Du Maurier’s story?

I waited for something to happen. It was just one repeat family negative trait one generation after another. Not my thing.
