Publisher's Summary

The Angry Tide is the seventh novel in Winston Graham's sweeping series of Cornwall, Poldark.

Cornwall, towards the end of the 18th century. Ross Poldark sits for the borough of Truro as Member of Parliament - his time divided between London and Cornwall, his heart divided about his wife, Demelza.

His old feud with George Warleggan still flares, as does the illicit love between Morwenna and Drake, Demelza's brother. Before the new century dawns, George and Ross will be drawn together by a loss greater than their rivalry and Morwenna and Drake by a tragedy that brings them hope....

One of my faves! Winston + Oliver = #winning !

"It was windy. The pale afternoon sky was shredded with clouds..." Yep, I can quote those first few delicious lines of The Angry Tide, but I'd much rather listen to the amazing Oliver Hembrough croon it to me through my AirPods! It's even changed my attitude about exercise. Now I can't WAIT to get outside and walk up some really steep hills. Instead of listening to my own gasping for breath, I get to lose myself in the Poldark series of books. Fantastic writing and fabulous narration! My dream vacation is to travel to Cornwall and enjoy the amazing scenery (aka brood on a cliff in Ross-style) while listening to these books! :)

Jealousy, pain, pettiness, and loss

success comes from learning about one's own place in society, and nothing matters without trust.

Nice development of the story

Characters have grown, plot remains interesting, twist are not expectable and performance excellent. This is where the original TV series ends as there where no more books to produce and the next book is 10 years later. Interesting how this is done. I enjoyed this book and if you are into this series, then you will not be disappointed with this book.

Great Performance of an Excellent Series

Would you listen to The Angry Tide again? Why?

I have always enjoyed the Poldark series by Winston Graham. He's a marvellous story teller and his writing so beautifully descriptive that when I finally got to visit Cornwall some years ago, I felt I had been there before! I have read all the books at least twice and I'm now enjoying the Audible experience and it's like reading them all for the first time again. I do hope Audible completes the series as they are all good and the story never gets stale as there are always new characters to get to know.

I love this saga!

If you could sum up The Angry Tide in three words, what would they be?

I
Can't
Even

What did you like best about this story?

As usual with these novels I love how human relations are not unidimensional. Many authors tend to present the character's relationships and feelings as a bit extreme so that they seem caricatures. In these novels, the characters seem so real

What does Oliver J. Hembrough bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The cadence and the accents! He's a wonderful narrator and it's such a pleasure listening to him.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It didn't make me cry or laugh, but it did make me reflect on my own relationship with those close to me.

Any additional comments?

These books make me happy! I don't know why, but they do.

The Angry Tide another excellent book

Taken back over 200 years to the struggles of living in darker tines this is an enlightening story of the enmity between two men one kind and level-headed the other greedy and grasping a gripping read and with all the reality of the hold bankers can have on our lives.

Book 7 in the Poldark series

Thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. I have read the book also, but hearing it was even better and brought it to life. Can't wait to listen to book 8, "The Stranger from the Sea". Thank you Audible.
