The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (Version 2 dramatic reading)

Summary:

A mysterious young widow arrives at Wildfell Hall, an Elizabethan mansion which has been empty for many years, with her young son. She lives there under an assumed name, Helen Graham, and very soon finds herself the victim of local slander. Refusing to believe anything scandalous about her, Gilbert Markham discovers her dark secrets. In her diary Helen writes about her husband's physical and moral decline through alcohol and the world of debauchery and cruelty from which she has fled. This passionate novel of betrayal is set within a moral framework tempered by Anne's optimistic belief in universal salvation. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is mainly considered to be one of the first sustained feminist novels. May Sinclair, in 1913, said that the slamming of Helen's bedroom door against her husband reverberated throughout Victorian England. In escaping from her husband, she violates not only social conventions, but also English law. (Summary by Wikipedia)

Genres:

    Of course it is slow compared to a modern novel as most novels are from this time but still enjoyable. The narrators are quite good for a LibriVox recording.

  • Lia P

    Interesting to listen to a book and compare to other books by Bronte sisters. A long but nice storyline. The narration by multiple people was a bit unusual and though quite nice for Helen and Gilbert, it was not consistent and equally good for other characters..

  • Sarah W

    Long but good. Loved the vocabulary. The story is so different from today and yet so similar.

  • Krista Davis

    Wonderful book. Reading is decent but some of the characters voices don't match the character and some of them are difficult to hear due to poor sound quality. I would rather have listened to one reader throughout.
