    Description

    Sixteen years have passed since Grace was locked up, at the age of 16, for the cold-blooded murders of her employer and his housekeeper/lover. Her alleged accomplice in the crimes, James McDermot, paid the extreme sentence of the law and was hanged on November 21, 1843. But some thought Grace was innocent, and her sentence has been commuted to life imprisonment. After a spell in the Lunatic Asylum she now claims to have no memory of the murders, and so Dr Simon Jordan tries to wake the part of Grace's mind which lies dormant. But what will he find?

    Quite good

    An interesting story, but not as gripping as I found Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale to be.

    I thought at first that the performance was not very good as it was sometimes not immediately clear to me whether it was speech or internal thought, though that did clear up, and I have a much hier opinion of her now than in the first portion of audio. It's much easier to understand a differentiation (for me, at least) when the character is not Irish, as I find the performer's own (Canadian, slightly maritime?) accent to be similar in kind to the Irish accents she puts on, though still different.

    I enjoyed how all the characters' stories converged and went their own ways again.

    Matches the series perfectly

    I tried listening to “Alias Grace” before watching the series but became very confused – Atwood’s constant inclusion of letters and jumping around in the story is a bit difficult to wrap your head around in audio-form. However, after having watched the series, I decided to give it another go, and I absolutely loved this book despite knowing what was coming. I’m super impressed that the series creators were able to capture, almost perfectly, the whole vibe of this story. Absolutely excellently narrated. Loved it!

    With some patience...

    ...the story gets more interesting after the first chapters. I needed some time to get into the story, but it held my attention till the end once I got used to the narrative style.
    Very good performance. I would recommend this audio book

    Spannend und fesselnd

    Ich konnte das Hörbuch kaum zur Seite legen, so eingefangen war ich von der Atmosphäre.
