Charlton Griffin is the voice of classic (and often hard-to-find) unabridged audiobooks. He brings the distinction and flair one wants to hear in Great Books, while highlighting the humorous and sometimes scandalous nature of Ovid. This is one to keep on my iPod, as I have listened to it several times.
This classic novel is brought to life by the talents of Charlton Griffin, whose Audio Connoisseur productions are always a pleasure. The high style and wit are played upon perfectly.
This novel made me think of both Voltaire and Mark Twain with its satire of societal conceptions of wisdom and virtue. Fielding also reminds me of Dickens, though he is far less shy about discussing sex. I think this book is underappreciated by most readers only because they never get to reading it.
This remains one of my favorite audiobooks of all time. I have listened to it at least five times. Each time upon finishing it, I wish to sit down and have a good cry. The narration by Jeremy Irons is exquisite. It is a performance worthy of Nabokov's writing.
