(From Hilary) Poldark audio books
Permalink  
 


Hi Bella,

Just remembered this old audio books' post about 5 years ago from a UK member called Hilary which you might all find interesting and why it's now a Sticky as well. In fact this was the only post she ever made, however because she'd put it into the wrong forum it had to be moved into Poldark Experts.

Unfortunately none of the three members, the other 2 were from America, who posted these messages have logged on for ages, so although their email addresses might no longer be working I can try forwarding on a message to all of them if you wish ?

Dwight is also a keen audio books fan too....

Well, I looked up the source for the audio books, and the company's name is Chivers Audio Books. I'm sure if you do an Internet search on this company you might find what you're looking for.
Another idea is to simply get a tape recorder and make the audio tapes yourself! If you love the books, who could make a better personalized audio book tape than yourself? Especially if you know the book really well...you know what's coming, so you can alter your speech whilst reading accordingly. I did this with several books for my mom at one time, who was stricken with MS and couldn't hold the books.

Sadly, I don't know where to get any of the audio books.


And I know the series is out on VHS but not in a US format -- if anyone finds them anywhere on US VHS format or DVD (even better), I hope you'll share your source.


Doesn't anyone have a connection with anyone in Great Britain who could help out their American cousins?

In a unique twist, my library here seems to have all the books, including The Loving Cup, on tape, but they only have one or two of the actual books! I'm not sure where they got the tapes, but I'll do some further research and find out.
Then again, they have the VHS tapes there of the BBC series, and I can't find those anywhere, either, and the IMDB (Internet Movie Database) doesn't even have record of the Poldark series on any home format.
To sum it up, maybe the library has a source that we don't?!

I've read the first eight Poldark books as unabridged audio tapes.  I now have the eleventh - The Twisted Sword - but don't seem able to find the intervening two, ie The Miller's Dance and The Loving Cup.  Is anyone else out there an avid reader/listener of audio books, and if so, do you know if these two titles are available and how to lay my hands on them?
