Gr 8 Up-Actress Elizabeth McGovern reads this acceptable abridgement with precise, clear diction. Her expressive voice is pleasant, effectively using breath sounds and pauses to recreate dramatic moods. Her usually quick tempo keeps the text from being ponderous, but it can be slower when necessary. Given the time period of the original work, her formal tone is appropriate. Her speech changes slightly for the different characters, but there is not much dialogue. The abridgement retains the continuity of the story. Consider purchasing this version for special education students who can't handle the longer, original text.-Claudia Moore, W.T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA

I read this book my senior year of high school but this time was different.
Spoiler Alert(but not giving the book away): The end has a nice little twist that is hard to see coming, but overall it is a very dry read.
I would highly recommend this book for reading to anyone who truly enjoys a serious and good novel.
