I read this book many many years ago and was disappointed with this recording. The narrator was flat and didn't bring Bradbury's poetry to life. There was not enough delineation in his characters as well. It's such a classic book, audible.com should re-record it with a better narrator. Sorry guys.
This is a long book but it grabbed me right from the start - and it doesn't let up. McCammon's impeccable historical research doesn't get in the way of a gripping page-turner. It's a murder mystery, but it's more than that - it's about the politics and the underbelly of a small frontier community.Ultimately though it's a love story, a wonderful and unpredictable love story. The narration by Edoardo Ballerini is superb - he captures all the nuances of the characters beautifully and he doesn't rush the read. I am recommending this book to all my friends. And I now want to read more of McCammon. He is a terrific storyteller.
Simon Vance was born to do Dickens. And his performance here is truly extraordinary. He captures the essence of the writer, the characters, the time. I felt very sad when I finished listening to the book. It was like saying goodbye to intimate friends. Congratulations to Mr. Vance for a tour de force performance.
Lyndam Gregory was born to do this performance. it is truly extraordinary. He captures the essence of India, the characters, the time, the wonder and the magic of this incredible book. It was a joy to listen to each day, and I felt very sad when it was over. It was like saying goodbye to intimate friends. Congratulations to Mr. Gregory for a tour de force performance.
