  • "A modern day mutiny"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This is a dramatization of the book Caine Mutiny. It is a short play that kept me glued to my IPod. This story makes a nice break between long complicated books. I remember the movie with Humphrey Bogart as Captain Queeg. Herman Wouk based the story on some of his experiences in the navy but it is a novel. The court room drama is riveting and Wouk builds his characters through the testimony given. This book is a classic.

    This acclaimed World War II psychological court room drama was the sensation of 1954. The play portrays a mutiny of naval officers aboard the U.S.S. Caine. Their suspicions concerning their captain's sanity lead to their rebellion and a subsequent court-martial.

  • Cold Comfort Farm (Dramatised)

    ""There is NO BUTTER in Hell.......""

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    ....thunders Amos Starkadder, hell fire preacher at the Church of the Quivering Brethren. He has been describing the terrors of the afterlife and underlining the fact that there will be no butter to soothe the burns of the damned. This is just one of so many throw away lines that keep bringing back a smile.

    Long ago as a teenager I devoured and enjoyed the emotion charged and dire tragedies of writers like Mary Webb, Thomas Hardy and George Eliot. Whilst not wishing to detract from great classic literature, they did tend to paint rural life of those times as full of doom, gloom, and poverty and peopled by sad.slightly deranged and pathetic characters down trodden by domineering, manipulative elders.

    This glorious light hearted spoof on so many of those Victorian plot lines had me in stitches and I loved every moment. I usually steer clear of dramatisations, as for me the background sounds etc can be distracting. This one was clear as a bell and the narrators a delight.

    If you listen to the sound sample above make sure you hear it all through as the start is NOT how the recording really sounds - just another teaser. Sit back and enjoy - this is fun.

    3 of 3 helpful votes

    Wonderful idea to give listeners the ability to choose between versions with or without commentaries.

    When I started listening to the version with commentaries, I was concerned that the commentaries might over explain the scenes and prevent me from appreciating the play from my own perspective. However, I listened on and was delighted to find that my worries were unfounded. The commentaries were copious and insightful enough to ensure effortless understanding of the context and language of the dialogue, but they did not preempt independent appreciation of the play overall.

    In sum, I enjoyed this audiobook and gladly recommend it.
