Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Ben Elliot, who reads the prologue, and Penelope Rawlins combine a skillful delivery of Henry James’s careful nineteenth-century prose with a more modern pace that will keep listeners on the edge of their seats. Rawlins’s voice subtly becomes more emotional as this masterpiece, a blend of early literary realism and ghost story, advances towards a captivating finish. Sometimes a classic sounds like a classic because it’s that good and, in this case, that scary. A listening treat.” AudioFile
