Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Wilkie Collins

Narrated By: LibriVox Volunteers

Duration: 25 hours 38 minutes

Summary:

The Woman in White is an epistolary novel written by Wilkie Collins in 1859, serialized in 1859-1860, and first published in book form in 1860. It is considered to be to the first mystery novel, and is widely regarded as one of the first (and finest) in the genre of 'sensation novels'....

The Woman in White is also an early example of a particular type of Collins narrative in which several characters in turn take up the telling of the story. This creates a complex web in which readers are unsure which narrator can, and cannot, be trusted. Collins used this technique in his other novels, including The Moonstone. This technique was copied by other novelists, including Bram Stoker, author of Dracula (1897), although by the end of the 19th century the technique was considered "old-fashioned".

    Good story. A little drawn out, but I suppose that part of the older novels. Good listen, good narrative.

    Well worth the long read. Filled with suspense and surprises until the very end. The narrators are very engaging and fit the characters nicely.

    The Readers with the American accents didn’t fit in with the tone of the story

    The book was very entertaining. I enjoyed it thoroughly. The narration would have been more enjoyable had there been more continuity. Such as having the same people reading for each character throughout. Loved the gentleman from Big Bible. Wonderful voice!

  • GilbertMouse

    This is an amazing book. Long, complex with characters of great depth. So many twists with locations that come to life. Greed, titles, wealth, love, insanity, family bonds, art, and redemption. This book has it all. One of the best that I have read.

    It was hard to stay focused on the story early on but as it progressed, I stayed up late into the evenings as I was hooked.
