    "Loved this Gothic Novel"

    I saw the Crimson Peak movie and really feel in love with the story. I sought this novelization to get more detail into the characters thoughts & feelings. This performance did not disappoint! Upon finishing this book, I again saw the movie with greater insight. My experience was enhanced, and I appreciated the story, setting, and cast even more. Guillermo del Toro is a master, his movie is now one of my favorites.

    This novelization is very well done, I felt completely immersed in this audio book, every detail available. Imogen Church is superior.

    Any additional comments?

    I am not one for scary, suspenseful novels, but I was intrigued by this one. I enjoyed the storyline, though slow in some parts. I was pleased with the characters throughout the story. Additionally, I am a huge fan of Imogen Church's narratives. She has a way of bringing each character to life.

    "Excellent"

    I began reading this with the impression that it would be a ghost story, but it was so much more than that. The characters had such depth, and the plot was beautifully delivered. Great read for the Halloween season, or if you're simply in the mood for a darker tale.

    "Liked the movie and loved this audio book"

    I watched the movie and found it to be pretty good so after reading others reviews, I thought I would give the audio book a go. I was not disappointed and the performance by the narrator was great and she captured emotions well. I think she excelled the most with the character of Lucille. After listening to the whole book I almost wonder if she wasn't the main character and not Edith. Overall, very pleased and I'd recommend it to others.

    "A nice Surprise"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Crimson Peak to be better than the print version?

    I have never read the print version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Edith


    What does Imogen Church bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    For the most part I did enjoy the narration. But in a few instances I felt the 'reading' was a bit choppy.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    In the beginning...no. But once Edith decided on her future...yes, I wanted to see what was going to happen next.


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened/read better books in this genre, but I did enjoy the book and I am glad I used the credit. The characters matured and you got to feel them and how they felt...in the story.

    "Okay...."

    This was an alright book. The narration by Imogene Church was excellent. The story was interesting, but the pace took much too long to pick up.

    Where does Crimson Peak rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's not my favorite, but it's up there. All and all it was a good book. I enjoyed the movie, and in book format, it offers more perspective, insight as to what the characters are thinking as the events unfold. The narrative also does a fantastic job of painting the scene for the reader. The girl reading does a good job in voicing Edith's character, as well as Lucille's, but I wasn't entirely fond of the way she voiced Thomas. It doesn't take away from the story, and as stated, she got the other two down pat. She's a good reader, it's just personal preference on my part.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Crimson Peak?

    The dance between the main leads. It's just as lovely as what happened in the movie.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Without giving anything away...let's just say a certain 'confrontation' between two characters near the end involving a knife that ended quite badly for them both. The narrative made it easy for the reader to sympathize despite the situation, and it was very emotional to listen to, just as it was in the movie.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great standalone book, and it's also a good read if you happened to have seen the movie first and enjoyed it. If you didn't enjoy the movie, the book doesn't give you anything that the movie doesn't, so you might want to pass up on it.All in all, it's a call back to an unfortunately overlooked genre. Gothic Romance will, I hope, one day make a return, but for now, this is a wonderful treat for those who also wish it to come back.

    "A masterpiece!"
    What made the experience of listening to Crimson Peak the most enjoyable?

    Imogen Church, of course! Also, the writing is exquisite, the characters and place so richly developed richly that one feels oneself to be there with them. Imogen Church is a narrator like no other, and this exquisite gothic novel is a wonderful playground for her extraordinary talent.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The quietly sinister development.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the siblings' secret is revealed in the attic.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    There is a film of this book. In fact the book was made of the film; it is a "novelization." I suppose the tag line would be, "Hauntingly exquisite."


    Any additional comments?

    I always look for narrations by my favorite narrator, Imogen Church; and by so doing I have discovered authors I now love. I knew that she had narrated Crimson Peak, but I hadn't bought it, as I am not into ghost stories. Then I, quite by accident, saw a bit of the movie on HBO. It looked fabulous; and I was all excited to have a nice long listen by Imogen, so I downloaded the book forthwith, and was mesmerized for several days, and sad when it was over. Now I will watch the gorgeously filmed, deliciously creepy movie. I will definitely listen to the audiobook again, in the future.

    "Wonderfully descriptive and creepy."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to anyone who loves ghost stories and thrillers. the 'Twist' was a bit easy to see coming but it didn't make it any less enjoyable at all. I will sit down to watch the film after listening to this book and i know i'll listen to it more than once.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favourite character was the house; It seemed to have its own oppressive role to play and the descriptions of the rooms were wonderful. The other charecters were all well written and drew sympathy at points. The main villain when revealed was written well and the action was well conveyed


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The end scene, its action was almost palpable.
