Olive


Read by Arielle Lipshaw

(4.4 stars; 26 reviews)

Inspired by Jane Eyre, Dinah Maria Craik's 1850 novel, Olive, was one of the first to feature a disabled central character. 'Slightly deformed' from birth, Olive believes that she will never be able to marry like other women, so she devotes her life to her art, her mother, and above all, her religion. It takes a dark secret from the past and a new, fascinating acquaintance, to make her realize what her life could be. (Summary by Arielle Lipshaw) (14 hr 3 min)

Reviews

lovely voice


(5 stars)

what an amazing narrator! I hope to hear more from her. She does excellent character voices which really bring the story to life and her narration is soothing and well enunciated. The recording is also very clear and without any background noises. The story itself is also lovely and it's nice to see a disabled protagonist portrayed in a favourable light, something quite unusual in Victorian literature.

Great reader!


(5 stars)

This is a touching story, and the reader has done a fantastic job. She has a beautiful voice, intonation and a natural way of delivering the dialogue.
