A real delight. The cast does a very good job, not just in their narrated character but in a reasonable consistency of the other characters they have to portray in conversations. Glen McCready narrates Walter Hartright’s sections well but it’s the other characters he portrays that bring things to life. I was hooked as soon as he exaggerated Professor Pesca’s Italian roots in his language (despite being described as “a perfect Englishman in his language”). The star of the show, as he is in the book, is Count Fosco despite his limited direct appearance. The other readers take pains to emphasize the slimy and self-inflated character, although it’s the conversations with his pets that I’ll probably remember most. Not a dull moment in the twenty-eight hours--a showcase for a perfect match between novel and medium.
The mood and suspense were maintained thhroughout the novel. The plot twists will have you guessing at different intervals about the fate of the major characters. The ending is well done, it doesn't disappoint and leaves no questions unanswered. Overall, this was a good gothic novel.
