Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 K.M. Weiland | 1/17/2014

    " Interesting but scattered multiple-generation saga. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffany | 12/22/2013

    " This novel tells of the legacy of a family and their effect upon a country based on the feud of another family. It displays the joys and sorrows of the Brodicks. It is an awesome read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Krisette Spangler | 12/10/2013

    " This is a multigenerational saga that I just could not enjoy. The characters were all so depressed and troubled. The story was well constructed, but it just wasn't the least bit enjoyable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hope Huntington | 8/29/2013

    " ok, but not one of my favorites of hers "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine | 7/22/2013

    " Absolute epic about five generations of the Broderick family who own the copper mine on Hungry Hill. Yet another du Maurier novel - wonderfully written and full of engrossing characters - that I could hardly bear to put down, even though I kept waiting for the next depressing thing to happen! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Fionnula | 4/27/2013

    " Some parts were interesting, but for the most part horribly depressing. I never want to read this book again! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rae | 1/31/2013

    " Four generations of Irish mine owners are examined, none as strong in purpose as the original generation. This book is full of memorable characters and interesting historical information. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimi | 9/29/2012

    " hmm, i didn't enjoy this one as much as 'house on the strand' for example. du maurier was very pleased with it apparently; perhaps because of the multiple main characters, following a family five generations, 'epic', etc. maybe it's my age; maybe i should of read it 20 years ago... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miriam | 4/17/2012

    " I rlove du Maurier's style of writing. I could not put this book down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 1/28/2012

    " I was very dispaointed with Hungry Hill. The other Du Maurier books that I've read, I've adored but apart from a few chapters where I was interested, most of Hungry Hill bored me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 10/18/2011

    " Hungry Hill is an Irish family saga written about a specific copper mine. It isn't as lengthy as most family sagas, and it is definitely not a flattering account of the Irish. The description and detail is classic du Maurier, and therefore makes it worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anita Williamson | 7/30/2011

    " I love this author. This was a very interesting book. I was hoping there might be some type of mystery associated with the plot. There wasn't but it was still good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kay Vincent | 6/28/2011

    " Daphne, as always at her best. A great writer who is not acknowledged as she should be. "

    " I rlove du Maurier's style of writing. I could not put this book down. "

    " Wonderfully gripping and sensitive saga. The closest thing to a British 'East of Eden' I've ever read. "

    " Not that great. I was disappointed. Certainly not Rebecca-quality. I gave up on reading it after the third generation, and looked up a summary online to see how it ended, because it was too tedious to finish.

    Life is too short to read bad books.
