I thought I knew the story of Heathcliff and Cathy but there was so much more No movie can do justice to the complete story Joanna’s narration was superb bringing the characters to life thoroughly enjoyable

Great story had me hooked from the start. Just when I thought I had figured it out there came the twist. Never saw it coming. Narrators also excellent

Nothing beats the classic romance

While recently watching a travel log on Sommerset and Devon England they referred to the area as Lorna Doone country. Audible has introduced me to classics and so I added this to my list, and I’m glad I did. The language is such poetry and the characters leap right off the pages (or earbuds). A true romance that touches all the emotions. The narrator did an amazing job, especially with the local dialect (some hard to follow though). Very enjoyable time spent.

Could wait to get back to the book. Intriguing story and the characters complex and interesting. Thoroughly enjoying getting to know all the supporting characters better. Can’t wait for the next book.

The subject matter was a little dark but the story kept you guessing and there were surprising twists. I like that you got to know some of the supporting characters better and they were quite funny at times. It took me a while to get used to the narrator some of his inflection sounded like a poor imitation of Captain Kirk from Star Trek and other times like Anthony Andrews as the scarlet pimpernel but the story was strong enough to override it. Very enjoyable listen

Beautiful story

So very well written. A story that imparted knowledge at the same time as entertained. Alma character came alive and I really cared about her. She made me laugh at times which I love in a novel. Very enjoyable

Took a chance on this detective novel and am now hooked. Great story with lots of intrigue and twists. Couldn’t wait to get back to it.

I selected this book as it was recommended as a book to read/listen to that would give you the feel of London. It definitely did that - following along the streets and listening to Big Ben chime the hours. The characters switched often, so it didn’t flow very well. Not much of a story. The narration by Juliette Stevenson was great as usual - she certainly kept me listening.
