  • The English Patient

    With ravishing beauty and unsettling intelligence, Michael Ondaatje's Booker Prize-winning novel traces the intersection of four damaged lives in an Italian villa at the end of World War II. Hana, the exhausted nurse; the maimed thief, Caravaggio; the wary sapper, Kip: each is haunted by the riddle of the English patient, the nameless, burned man who lies in an upstairs room and whose memories of passion, betrayal, and rescue illuminates this audiobook like flashes of heat lightening.

    Leslie A. Foote says: "4 lives in the aftermath of WWII"
    "Both Book and Narrator excellent"
    Overall

    I wasn't sure about the book due to earlier reviews, but I want to assure you that the narrator is excellent. I also happen to like the book better than the movie made of it.

    Catch-22 is set in the closing months of World War II, in an American bomber squadron on a small island off Italy. Its hero is a bombardier named Yossarian, who is frantic and furious because thousands of people he hasn't even met keep trying to kill him. (He has decided to live forever, even if he has to die in the attempt.)

    Phil says: "Phenominal Reading - Story and Damn Funny"
    "Catch 22"
    Overall

    The book is great, and is duly recognized as such. What I need to write about is the narrator: he does such an excellent job with the fast paced and hilarious conversation, with the voices and personalities of the characters, and with voice emphasis on various aspects of the text, that hearing him is such a thrilling experience. This is not an easy book to act out, but this narrator has managed it superbly.

    It is rare that you hear an actor perform a well written story, not because of the shortage of actors, but because of the shortage of good stories. This is one instance where the novel met its match!
