At Lyme Regis on the Dorset coast, a young Victorian amateur palaentologist, Charles Smithson, is struck by a solitary figure standing at the far end of the Cobb, staring out to sea. It is Sarah Woodruff, known to the locals as 'poor Tragedy' since her apparent liaison with a French sailor who has since deserted her. Although Charles is already engaged to a young heiress, he is immediately beguiled and eventually infatuated with Sarah. Download and start listening now!

    " I wanted to like this book. I really did. But in the end, I just couldn't. All the characters in this book were really just awful people. I didn't care about any of them. And I didn't find the style of writing nearly as novel as everyone else seems to. "

    " Victoraian story, 1960s narrator makes for an interesting contrast. Love a story with multiple endings. I wasn't crazy over either of the main characters, but I think that I wasn't supposed to be. Charles did not seem to be self aware, or maybe it was just the period and circumstances. A study of gender roles which is partly from the 1960s. "

    " I read this while in a lodge in Mendocino (CA coast) and the weather was grey, windy, wet...perfect! "

    " Poo. I have no idea why I didn't give up on it quicker. I read most of it on a long train journey, I suppose with nothing better to do. By around page 180 or so, I wondered why I had even bothered reading so far. I then decided that since I'd got so far, I might as well finish it but started skimming the pages. By around 220, I decided I had better things to do with my train ride like staring out the window. (I'm trying to figure out in words why exactly I didn't like it? The story had the potential to be interesting. I suppose the way it was written just didn't capture my interest...) "
