    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I will absolutely recommend this to friends. The book flowed very well. I could really feel like I was seated in the audience of the live show.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Matty is an exceptional man. He's in the Baseball Hall of Fame but should be in Life's Hall of Fame as well!


    Have you listened to any of Eddie Frierson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No this was my first experience listing to Mr. Frierson but it certainly will not be my last.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Matty the Legend Comes Alive.

    The script for the universally acclaimed one person play written by Eddie Frierson and based on the life and writings of Baseball Hall of Fame and New York Giants Pitching legend Christy Mathewson. In a time when Giants walked the earth and roamed the Polo Grounds, none was more honored than than the great Christy Mathewson - the quiet, educated man who lifted the then rowdy world of baseball into gentlemanliness.

    What made the experience of listening to The Crucible (Dramatized) the most enjoyable?

    As an English teacher I enjoy listening to well performed plays...and so do my students. The actors perform admirably.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Crucible (Dramatized)?

    Stacy Keach is magnificent as John Proctor. "My Name man, my name."


    Any additional comments?

    I wish there was a notation that this is an abridged version of the play.

  • "The Joys of Existential and Spiritu..."

    9 of 10 helpful votes

    Ah, what a delightfully bleak, humorously horrible, grotesquely sublime, slapstickishly nihilistic, transcendently claustrophobic, bracingly despairing, and entertainingly frustrating play Waiting for Godot is! It's perfect.

    And I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this audiobook version. The British actors, Sean Barrett, David Burke, Terence Rigby, and Nigel Anthony, are excellent, bringing Beckett's text and characters alive with wit, heart, and perfect timing. The two friends Estragon and Vladimir are an appealing pair of morosely and stubbornly heroic fools: ever waiting in the wasteland for the never appearing Godot, ever complaining about and attempting to understand their situation, never mustering the courage to escape it, repeatedly forgetting their past, playing off each other's words like suicidal comedians, sometimes arguing, and often treating each other with moving affection. There is something strangely comforting about their never-ending failures. As if an adult Charlie Brown were living with Eeyore instead of Snoopy. Pozzo and Lucky, the foil-pair of Estragon and Vladimir, are morbidly fascinating in their abusive master-slave relationship.

    Here are a few of the many great moments in the audiobook: when Lucky "thinks," when Estragon and Vladimir pass their hats and Lucky's back and forth between them, when the boy angel delivers his messages (that Godot will surely come tomorrow!), when Estragon and Vladimir "abuse" each other and then make up, when Estragon and Vladimir debate helping Pozzo up, and when Pozzo makes his woeful speech, "They give birth astride of a grave, the light gleams an instant, then it's night once more."

    Waiting for Godot (like any play), of course, is a visual work of art best experienced performed live on stage. However, if you are unable to see it like that, listening to this audiobook would be the next best thing, and a wonderful experience in itself.

    There is now no doubt that not only is Waiting for Godot the outstanding play of the 20th century, but it is also Samuel Beckett's masterpiece. Yet it is both a popular text to be studied at school and an enigma. The scene is a country road. There is a solitary tree. It is evening. Two tramp-like figures, Vladimir and Estragon, exchange words. Pull off boots. Munch a root vegetable. Two other curious characters enter. And a boy. Time passes. It is all strange yet familiar.

    "Sparkling and combustible" (Bloomberg Businessweek). "Disgraced rubs all kinds of unexpected raw spots with intelligence and humor." (Newsday). "In dialogue that bristles with wit and intelligence, Akhtar puts contemporary attitudes toward religion under a microscope, revealing how tenuous self-image can be for people born into one way of being who have embraced another…. Everyone has been told that politics and religion are two subjects that should be off-limits at social gatherings. But watching these characters rip into these forbidden topics, there's no arguing that they make for ear-tickling good theater." (New York Times).
