Henry James' classic ghost story comprises the written testimony of a young governess, charged with looking after two small children at an isolated country estate, who believes they are being haunted. As the story progresses, the governess' increasingly frenetic narration provokes the question: is she insane, or are the ghosts real? (Summary by Elizabeth Klett) (4 hr 36 min)

Reviews

Great reading

(5 stars)

While I don't like the story that much, the reader is absolutely excellent! In particular, she captures the voices of the children perfectly. This audiobook is great way to get through a rather dry read (in my opinion)

It grew on me

(4 stars)

Had a bit of trouble getting into it but it was interesting psychologically. The pitch just grew. It was exciting.

Well done

(5 stars)

Such a good job, and the ending showed the ominous enigmatic ending modern movie makers strive to emulate.

Excellent

(5 stars)

Another exquisite and dramatic reading by Elizabeth Klett!

(5 stars)

Scary... weird... will have to listen again... complex

Great voice

(5 stars)

I have wanted to hear this for a long time and wasn't disappointed. The scary parts are from when she thinks shes going mad. Even though you can hear what some of us English call 'americanisms' come through that (parsages instead of passages!) can be forgiven as Elizabeth kletts narration and British voice is amazing! Well done to all concerned but especially Elizabeth kletts. A brilliant job!

Simply wonderful!

(5 stars)

The reader really captures the tone of the story in every way and the voices are absolutely perfect for all characters! I agree with some of the previous reviews, in that I was very impressed when I heard the children's voices in particular. Thank you for such a treat!

(3 stars)

The ending is unclear, the story wasn't that interesting. If it wasn't a classic, I might have given it one star. Thanks to the reader, who did a very good job, for narrating this boring book, if I read it physically I would have DNF it.
