Although the narration is dramatic and in keeping with the quality of the translation, the narator's voice becomes unintelligible at the end of each passage. I gave up trying to listen while driving or exercising. I simply could not understand what was being said. If you purchase this title, I suggest you also buy the book and read it while listening to the narrator's performance, or else listen in a very quiet environment.
Buy this book. You'll laugh, you'll cry. OK. You probably won't cry, but you will laugh. A lot. For pure wit, Christopher Moore's "Fool" is right there with Douglas Adams' "Hitchhiker's Guide". And the narration by Euan Morton is Oscar worthy. It's probably fortunate that Mr. Moore was not a contemporary playwright in Shakespeare's England. After seeing Moore's version, the bard might never have bothered to write his "King Lear".
