A House to Let

by Charles DickensWilkie CollinsElizabeth GaskellAdelaide Anne Procter

15 ratings, 7 reviews

A House to Let is a novella originally published in 1858 in the Christmas edition of Dickens’ Household Words magazine. Each of the contributors wrote a chapter (stories within a story, and in the case of Adelaide Anne Procter, as a story in verse) and the whole was edited by Dickens. The plot concerns an elderly woman, Sophonisba, who notices signs of life in a supposedly empty dilapidated house (the eponymous “House to Let”) opposite her own, and employs the efforts of an elderly admirer, Jabez Jarber, and her servant, Trottle, to discover what is happening within.

This one of my favourate audiobooks, Ruth Golding brings out the best in this and other clasics, with those rounded, and velvet tones.
