The Mysteries of Udolpho audiobook

This is an audiobook recording of The Mysteries of Udolpho, by Ann Radcliffe. Set in Europe in the year 1584, it is the story of orphan Emily St. Aubert, who finds herself separated from the man she loves and confined within the medieval castle of her aunt’s new husband, Montoni, after being forced to travel through France and Italy. Inside the castle, she must cope with an unwanted suitor, Montoni’s threats, and the wild imaginings and terrors that threaten to overwhelm her. The mysterious happenings in the story always have a natural and probable explanation because Radcliffe was a very rational person and did not believe in the supernatural. Radcliffe’s strengths in writing were in describing scenery as well as suspense and terror. Many critics have called the work “dreamlike” and “suggestive of the cinematic technique of slow-motion.”
