Mary: A Fiction


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(2.7 stars; 6 reviews)

Eliza, Mary's mother, is obsessed with novels, rarely considers anyone but herself, and favours Mary's brother. She neglects her daughter, who educates herself using only books and the natural world. Ignored by her family, Mary devotes much of her time to charity. When her brother suddenly dies, leaving Mary heir to the family's fortune, her mother finally takes an interest in her; she is taught "accomplishments", such as dancing, that will attract suitors. However, Mary's mother soon sickens and requests on her deathbed that Mary wed Charles, a wealthy man she has never met. Stunned and unable to refuse, Mary agrees. Immediately after the ceremony, Charles departs for the Continent. (Summary by Wikipedia) (2 hr 25 min)

Reviews

Very Unclear Reader


(1 stars)

I was looking forward to this book, but the reader was incomprehensible. I tried the first couple of chapters and gave up. Sad.


(5 stars)

Nice quality voice, but some might find the accent hard to understand. I didn’t, so I enjoyed the book and the reader!
