(5 stars)

Wonderful reader, greatly enjoyed it.

great reader


(4 stars)

I don’t think I would have carried on with this us I was reading this but this reader was really good and kept me listening; the story is ok if you want to listen to a story about bratty kids treating their elders with contempt where I would have got a clip round my ears when I was a kid

good reading, a few technical problems


(4 stars)

I really enjoyed Libby Gohn's reading of this lesser-known Brontë work. I subtracted one star due to some glitches/skipping, mostly concentrated in chapter 17. I read the (short) omitted passage on Gutenberg, and there were no more problems with the rest of the book.

Pleasant listen


(4 stars)

While I'm not sure I would have stuck with it were I reading in print, it was a nice, short story to listen to and I really enjoyed it. Libby was an excellent reader. Three stars to the book itself and five stars to the reader.

Superb reading of a wonderful novel.


(5 stars)

Libby does a superb job in reading this wonderful novel. Poor Agnes Grey! To have suffered the hardships and humiliations being a governess. Luckily all turns out well for her in the end. I highly recommend this book. Thank you Libby.

well read


(5 stars)

I greatly enjoyed the ending and the way the reader sounded patient and kind even when I would have smacked a Lady and left.

High recommendation

Libby is a wonderful reader and this is an excellent book. But she missed reading on chapter 4 paragraph 5.
