simply a classic. I haven't read this novel for years and it was a great treat to revisit. I now have the urge to acquire and listen to the entire collection , very addictive
A brilliant book, probably the best part was the way it was incorporated into the original, which, being the first novel, there was no certainty or even likely hood of there being many more.
This book needs a different narrator. I made it 4 hours in but couldn't handle the performance any longer.
Each sentence was overly flourished and exaggerated as though coming from a bad theater actor trying to pay the bills by reading books. I can imagine the narrator being breathless and exhausted after nearly every sentence. It turns even the most casual conversation between characters into a boisterous exchange that's difficult to listen to. I only made it through about 4 or 5 hours before I gave up. I will have to be more careful when picking books in the future.
I don't know how the narrator was hired for this series of books. Must of had a really low budget.
the story filled in a few blanks but it was much too predictable and I really don't like the narrator. He puts in way to much emotion into passages that really don't need it
