I have always loved this book and thought it would be good to have the audiobook in my library. what a disappointment to hear the narrator chosen for this book. it was horrible to hear her mangling place and character names. it was very distracting.

Disappointing dramatisation

Any additional comments?

This dramatisation completely destroys the purpose and story of the original book.I really loved the book and was very disappointed with this audible book. If you have not read the book you should not listen to this audible dramatisation

The story was let down by the narration

Would you try another book written by Rosalie Ham or narrated by Rachel Griffiths?

I would not purchase another book narrated by Rachel Griffiths

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The period and the characters were the most interesting aspect of the story

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Rachel Griffiths?

Cate Blanchett

Did The Dressmaker inspire you to do anything?

I struggled with this book, The only thing I could do in the end was to stop reading.

Any additional comments?

I was really surprised that Rachel Griffith had such an uninspired performance in her reading of the Dressmaker. I was really looking forward to it as I admire her as an on screen actress. May give the Dressmaker another read but on kindle not audible.
