Kate Winslet is wonderful

Such an easy listen when the reading is this fluent and emotive. Kate Winslet reads with ease and expression. A classic story beautifully told.

Great to have some differentiation of characters

by use of different ways of talking. Made story easier to follow. Thanks Kate Winslet!

different from the original text

Unfortunately, it is different from the original text. I wanted to follow the text listening the audio at the same time. But it is just not possible.. Sentences are not full, some of them are completely missed. Even the order of words is different in some cases .. So disappointing ..
