First, I wanted to listen based on Carl Gustav Jung's opinion of it. Jung was a brilliant and multi-faceted thinker and I wanted to better understand him. I first downloaded a different version read by one man. It was horrible and disruptive as he switched back and forth between characters. This version had a full cast and a modern translation that brought the story to life for me.
The recurring themes of humankind interest me. The universal question of evil and whether or not god has a role in it goes all the way back to the biblical story of Job. Love hearing different perspectives from different eras.
I am in love with Goethe after hearing this rendition of Faust. Absolutely can't wait for part 2 and rest of the book. Please get more of his works and other such classics.
Say something about yourself!
No -very muddled recording with needless background noise
Introduction and better sound quality would have helped
I didn't finish this audiobook because I got depressed. Faust is a legendary jerk and I wanted to understand the story behind the legend.
I suppose that I may go back to it sometime when I have a stronger stomach.
