Clever but affected and repetitive writing style. Story tiresomely obsessive. Excellent narration by Armie Hammer.

Exquisite writing and beautifully read by Maureen O'Brien but story dragged and ending was flat.

A fascinating, beautifully written book of a puritanical, Victorian childhood. Geoffrey Palmer's narration was superb.

Could not finish this. The author's tone and delivery was very trying. It felt like he was shouting at his listeners or hitting them over the head with all of his opinions.

Soporific narration

Interesting content but found the narrator's delivery problematic - very sing song and soporific. Don't listen to this in the car!
