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.
Charlton Griffin is my "go to" man for the classics. He can deliver the haughtiness of Zeus and the self-loathing of Helen.
This is another great title in the Audio Connoisseur catalog.
The narrating style of Charlton Griffin is perfect for this most famous work by Tennyson. He reads with tasteful flair. I especially enjoyed "Merlin and Vivien."
This two-play compendium is thoroughly wonderful. If you enjoyed the "History Boys," Bennett's most recent hit play, now a hard-to-find (and excellent) movie, you will love these two one-acters. Both deal outwardly with the English spy scandals of the '50s and '60. "An Englishman Abroad" deals with Burgess in Moscow, and "A Question of Attribution" with "the fourth man" identified as Anthony Blunt in his capacity of curator of the Queen's pictures. However, the subject is really just a means of allowing Bennett to use his facility for charmingly glib dialog expressing thoughts about art, history, patriotism, and other interesting topics. The actors, a group of reliably splendid English performers, are delightful. In particular, Prunella Scales, as the Queen in "A Question of Attribution," is particularly memorable. Buy and enjoy again and again!
