North and South (Unabridged)

This audiobook stayed true to the book except for very small changes in a word or two and a passage left out at the end of chapter 50. Still a beautifully read story at a sort of reasonable cost. I prefer this version to the others (nearly all with American accents which grate on my nerves). This is a very British story and is enjoyable because Juliet Stephenson can accurately convey British accents (Manchester, Hampshire, Cockney, and upper middle class) with conviction. The abridged versions are a mistake because you lose so much of Mrs Gaskell's prose and the story is carefully built up over the 52 chapters. I really found it difficult to stop listening at any point, but got through the whole thing in 2 days with a few breaks. I highly recommend this version.

Engaging from the start

Juliet Stevenson reads this superbly! My attention was grabbed immediately and her delivery is fantastic. I found this truly beautiful story incredibly engaging, with Juliet's english accent and brilliant dramatic effect adding to it immensely. I was taken with every sentence and waited with baited breath in parts. Highly recommended.
