The story concerns a young woman called Rachel Verinder who inherits a large Indian diamond, the Moonstone, on her eighteenth birthday. The book is widely regarded as the precursor of the modern mystery and suspense novels. T. S. Eliot called it ‘the first, the longest, and the best of modern English detective novels’.

    Parts 24 a34 were narrated by woman with such a poor English accent (English as a second language) that I had to quit the narration. Very dissatisfied and very disappointed

    The Librovox statement before each chapter was so annoying. I will ensure NEVER to order another one from that company.

    the transition to the 2nd narrator was a shock to the system and the ears. completely ruined the flow of the book and it was hard to follow who was who anymore.

  • Frances L.

    I liked the book, however the female narrator was very difficult to listen to and understand. I almost quit listening because of her.

  • Margaret H.

    Great story. The narrator reading Miss Clark(?) had a thick accent very hard to understand, and she mispronounced many simple words.

    Ran Mattison... excellent story, good characters. Hate to look a gift horse in the mouth, since the narrators are volunteers, and I liked that different ones were used for different characters. However, the female reader was extremely difficult to understand & miss pronounced many words. Sorry, she brought the rating down to a 3.

  • Peggy P.

    I liked the book even though I found it a bit to wordy in places. I understand that the narrators are volunteers and lean on the generous side where ratings are concerned. that said I could only give this 3 stars as many words were pronounced so poorly that I would have to listen again or just guess.

  • Ann P.

    I truly enjoyed the moonstone

  • robin d

    I so love and have always loved The Moonstone! I am very glad that I previously heard a delightful recording of it because this narrative was very uncomfortable at times.

  • carla D

    Was hard to follow at time due to so many different readers reading as the same person telling the story. some women reading as a man and others having a harsh accent. story was interesting

  • Susan Messmer

    Not only can't I understand her, the accent is very annoying. She sounds like Za Za Gabor but her accent is more pronounced. The other narrators were okay so that's why I gave it 3 stars. If Za Za was the sole narrator I would give her a zero, but since there are no zeros, I'd give her a 1.
