The House in the Mist

The House in the Mist by Anna Katharine Green
By: (1846-1935)

It was a night to drive any man indoors. Not only was the darkness impenetrable, but the raw mist enveloping hill and valley made the open road anything but desirable to a belated wayfarer like myself.

Being young, untrammeled, and naturally indifferent to danger, I was not averse to adventure; and having my fortune to make, was always on the lookout for El Dorado, which, to ardent souls, lies ever beyond the next turning. Consequently, when I saw a light shimmering through the mist at my right, I resolved to make for it and the shelter it so opportunely offered.

But I did not realize then, as I do now, that shelter does not necessarily imply refuge, or I might not have undertaken this adventure with so light a heart. Yet, who knows? The impulses of an unfettered spirit lean toward daring, and youth, as I have said, seeks the strange, the unknown and, sometimes, the terrible. (Exerpt from Chapter I)

I had trouble with the reader at first, but gradually I understood her accent better..interesting story!

Subject: Intriguing!
The reader did a fantastic job. She has a beautiful accent easy to understand and great expression! The story is an intriguing and tangled mystery which all comes together toward the end. A love story or two is also included. Great listening experience.

Subject: Awful Reader
I couldn't get past 5 minutes with this book. The reader is terrible, I couldn't understand her. It's like she had a thick accent and read extremely slow.

Subject: The Best!
Wow! The reader is ok, and yet The Amethyst Box is the best Anna wrote!

Subject: Great short story!
An enjoyable story, especially if you want something short but fast-paced and interesting. Took a couple of chapters to get used to the reader and her style, but once I got accustomed to it, I was able to kick back and relax for the rest of the story.
