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.

Crimson Peak with a twist...

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.

Excellent Gothic Romance

I found the narrator to be amazing in her ability to change her voice and accent with each character. The story was deliciously dark and gave new insight to the characters and movie story. Usually when listening while working I will fade in and out of attention, but this book had me listening to every word. I enjoyed it very much and her interpretation of Lucille's voice was so eerie.

this book is amazing.

I loved every second of this book. it's perfect in every way. Imogene Church executed the story perfectly and the author used the best descriptive words I've EVER heard/read. You can see all everything the character sees, you can feel, smell and hear every little thing the character sees feels or smells because of the beautiful writing.

this book has become one of my ABSOLUTE favorites.

I seriously loved every second of this book.

Blown away!

Based on the reviews, I had high expectations for this book. I was not disappointed!! I had seen the movie, but I couldn't remember much of it, so it still had a great thrill for me. It was really wonderfully written. The only thing I got a little annoyed with was how completely naive the protagonist was. She overlooked sooo many signs that something wasn't right. Other than that, very well done and fantastic climactic ending.

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.

Crimson peak

A thoroughly riveting listen. A dark and beautifully Gothic work of horror by the master himself. And brilliantly novelized by Nancy Holder. In the tradition of Victorian Gothic romance.

A chilling tale

I loved this book, the characters all came to life from the page and you could sense their emotions each time their dark stories changed. Atmospheric and gothic.
