Faulkner's language is so complex that it takes a little effort to digest the text. As always he is well worth the effort but the listener needs a slower text reader to really appreciate the complexity of Faulkners language.
yes he did. Just spoken a little fast for me
after re reading and listening to several years after my first encounter with Nostromo I can not recommend the book highly enough. It is compelling to listen to and read at the same time so as not to miss any of the language and structure of the book .
everything form the way of expressing the language to the gripping tale
very good . The different expressions and accents were constantly good.
The descriptions of the sea and the Isabels.
a treat for anyone to read.
The book was rather like listening to a lawyer or policeman giving evidence at a public hearing. I am glad I bought it although I can not say I enjoyed the experience . I am not a fan of Kafka who I was reminded of while listening to Last Evenings on Earth
Kafka, The Trial . Same style of writing .
Left me neutral. No emotional response.
Excellent. gripping story and history
The breaking of the cable towing the target. Poor old captain lost the plot
listening is very relaxing.
a real experience of life at sea
