Twelve men, jurors in a court case, gather to discuss the guilt or innocence of a young man accused of murder. What happens in the jury room is an incisive look at the jury system and American justice system. This audiobook is brilliantly cast and makes the transition from a stage play very well. It's engaging and entertaining, dramatic and moving. Well worth listening to, and will not disappoint on repeated listenings.
This is a performance audiobook which shows how it should be done. This excellent Yasmina Reza play, brilliant translated by Christopher Hampton, is utterly engrossing. The premise is simple, two people (one man, one woman) sit in a carriage on a train trip through Europe. The play explores their thoughts as they travel, internal monologues assessing their lives, their loves, and each other. David Suchet's performance is marvelous - he is a performer who knows the power of radio drama, and Harriet Walter is equally enchanting. Buy this audiobook if you want something poignant, funny, and engaging.

It's a fabulous story of a slob and a neat freak who decide to live together when their marriages fail. Hilarity ensues. Nathan Lane is stellar as Oscar, a genius actor perfectly cast and having a lot of fun while he's at it.
Classic American comedy at its finest. Buy, laugh, and laugh some more ...
