This was a total surprise for one who avoided Russian literature in high school and college. It was so absorbing and accessible. This narrator, Anthony Heald, was the best I have had the pleasure of listening to in my eight years of listening to Audible. I am now going to search for his other works, then try some more Dostoevsky!
I was initially enthralled with the situation and the two main characters, and how they were dealing with an unbelievable situation. Unlike other reviewers, I found Jack's voice the most endearing of the readers. It was spellbinding imagining what would come of these prisoners - could there be an escape, how would the captor handle their effort to free themselves... and then the book... (like this review) seemed to lose energy... "its like a crater, a hole, where something happened...and then I close the door." Goodbye Room!
