This classic book is supposed to be fantastic, but I never managed to find out because the narrator is extremely annoying. He has a combination of monotonous and over exagerated theatrical voice. I guess I will have to read it myself instead..
The story might be ok - considering the period in which it was written - but I advise you to avoid this narrator. This is the second time I've had the misfortune of listening to him, and everyone sounds like a snooty british aristocrat, some with colonic problems. His rendition of the characters were so lifeless that I was completely bored with the whole story. Be warned - he narrated War and Peace also.
Love having someone read me a story. Fires in the hearth, rain on the roof, sunny days and surf. Good friends, good food and J S Bach.
an interesting listen.
Go to your local library and read it.
The reader in this case adds nothing at all.
