The Dark House

The Dark House by George Manville Fenn
By: (1831-1909)

An extremely wealthy but reclusive man has died, leaving an eccentric will which hints at great riches hidden somewhere in the house. Most of the people at the reading of the will did not know the deceased in person, but had received kindnesses from him, for instance by the payment of school and university fees. The principal beneficiary, a great-nephew, also did not know him. The only two people who really knew him were the old lawyer who dealt with his affairs, and an old Indian servant. Yet when the will had been read, and they all went to where the treasure–gold, jewels and bank-notes–were supposed to be hidden, nothing could be found.

I see these reviews and imagine country folk saying something to the effect of "I wish them british people would start talkin English like reel 'mericans, I can't even understand a word she sed." -- Seriously, the narrator is fully understandable and sounds quite fine. BTW, I am American myself...

I like the narrator, but the story is not very exciting or interesting.

I was looking forward to this story, but as soon as I heard the reader, I had to turn it off. Sorry, but the reader is so bad you can't even understand her accent !!!

I liked the sound of the book but not the narrator I've heard her before and this time I didn't even get to the first line These volunteers are brave to do this but it's a shame when listeners can't tolerate such out of kilter accents, spoiling the tale.
