    Description

    Fleeing a disastrous marriage, Helen Huntingdon retreats to the desolate mansion, Wildfell Hall, with her son, Arthur. There, she makes her living as a painter. Finding it difficult to avoid her neighbors, she is soon an object of speculation and gossip. Brontë portrays Helen's eloquent struggle for independence at a time when society defined a married woman as her husband's property.

    Excellent performances of an abridged version

    Performances are great. But take note - this is either an abridged version or there is a recording error. Almost all of Chapter 28 is missing.

    Relatable Romance and Dialogue

    This is only the second Anne Bronte book that I've read, but I enjoyed it more than Agnes Grey. It is primarily told from a man's perspective which I don't usually see! The book is unique because the main character is a man for the first 15ish chapters then switches to a woman for maybe 10 chapters before going back to the man again. The lover's conflicts in this story are surprisingly relatable for being written in 1848, especially if you have ever suffered mental abuse from a spouse or partner. That being said, the story overall is not dark or depressing at all. Nothing so shocking that it is hard to read. It is mild and insightful! Plus, loved the two narrators in this version! Very elegant accents and portrayed the emotional scenes very well!

    Beautiful Brontë!

    I found Tenant of Wildfell Hall Is a marvelous noble filled with subtle intrigues and not-so-subtle commentaries on both virtuous and despotic personalities. One seldom could find a better comparison between virtue and vice as one finds in this book. The story is entertaining and the narrators are exceptional!

    I found the narration to be quite delightful and was sorry when the story came to a close. I'd recommend this to everyone!

    A really excellent audio version

    I’m the sort of person who had tried to read The Tenant of Wildfell Hall once upon a time, before life and other things got in the way and I sort of forgot about it. Honestly this audio book was the best thing to get me back at it again. Where reading the book myself was sometimes a bit tedious, I thoroughly enjoyed having it read to me. I definitely recommend this version to anyone interested in the story. It’s a nice long one for if you do a lot of commuting and the story is, while not always the most exciting, very enjoyable. The two narrators do a good job of helping distinguish between a large cast of characters, and are never dull or monotonous to listen to.

    Excellent performances

    Alex Jennings and Jenny Agutter share the credit for this beautifully narrated production of Anne Bronte's powerful novel. The story includes within the framework of a traditional courtship plot an unconventional exposure of the plight of a woman trapped in a marriage with an alcoholic abusive man.

    Highly Recommended

    I was unfamiliar with Anne Bronte's writings until I listened to this recording. The themes in The Tenant of Wildfell Hall will be familiar to a 21st Century reader - spousal abuse, alcoholism, and a woman's attempt to maintain her own identity - and are more modern than in her sisters' better known Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. Due to the organization of the story, the use of two narrators is very effective and both narrators are outstanding.Although it is a long book and at times disturbing, I highly recommend the book and this recording. I look forward to reading/listening to Anne Bronte's other novel Agnes Grey.

    Not Jane Eyre or Wuthering Heights

    In pursuit of educating myself of the classics, my latest endeavors has been the Bronte sisters. I love Jane Eyre. I loved Wuthering Heights: But this novel just didn’t do it for me. It was predictable. The mysterious woman and the man who falls in love with her and the process of revealing her mystery through misleading assumptions and secrets is the storyline. I understand well the Brontë sisters were innovators as female novelists of their times. I believe this novel reflects the scope of life and it’s limited attainable accomplishments for women of the time. But I conclude that this novel was the romance novel of the day and the reinforcement of morality of the period. I read it. Check.

    Couldn't get enough

    The Bronte sisters never cease to capture me but Anne is by far so under appreciated. This book was moving and deserves as much claim as Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. The actors are perfect and don't miss a beat with vocals and expressions. And the story itself is securely riveting.

    Excellently performed Greatest of fiction novels!

    The Tennant of Wildfell Hall has long been my favorite fiction novel and this audio version is my favorite version of the kind. This is a story that should be read by every young adult before marriage, as it shows the presumptuous folly of a woman having men as close friends without any romantic sentiment or notions developing. One of the best themes is the consequences of decisions made in one's youth and the effects it can have on many others. The best themes though are Love, patience, and redemption.
