An absolute classic brilliantly narrated by
George Guidall, who is arguably Audible's best narrator.
This recording really brings to life the nightmarish existence that Josef K. suddenly is faced with.
The story itself has elements of paranoia and delusion. Josef K. is lured to play by invisible rules that seems to be almost logical. However, the overall setting is absurd.
The Trial is a masterpiece that, even though it is set in a Fritz Lang-like pre-war setting, has much to offer modern day readers.
I liked this story. It had an interesting setting and a novel idea. However, I felt than it never was developed to it's full potential, and the result is mid-way between a crime story and fantasy. The story ends with a whisper, not a bang, and suddenly you realize that it's finished. For me, the ending was too boring and predictable.
Mr. Gaiman is however a very good narrator, which makes the whole read enjoyable.
The book provides a biased and not complete picture of Woody Allen and his life. Almost as much time is spent on Mia Farrow as on Mr. Allen. Several parts of the book seems to rely more on gossip than fact. Perhaps the book is too long, and should be abridged to about 4h.
The narrator is unfortunately not to my liking, and she hsounds like a computer generated voice. I found that to be stressful after a while.
I would recommend the book to those who likes to read about celebrities and who enjoys gossip. I would not recommend it to those who would like to understand and learn more about Mr. Allen.
Michael Palins epic journeys are as interesting and enjoyable to read as they are in the original BBC series.
Michael's warmth and friendliness is felt thoughout the book. He is always eager and present. Always trying to understand the everyday life of places he visits and people he meets.
Michael is the best narratoryou will find.
I really enjoyed this book. It is highly recommended.
