Orwell's classic is just that, a classic. And Simon Prebble does a great job of bringing it to life. A wonderful listen
The book was good, even gripping through the first half. Then it became redundant and very predictable. And the end sounded like an excited school child preaching to you you about the wonder of God. The last four chapters felt like they were never going to end; dragging on and on and going nowhere. I appreciate the insight Brown was trying to portray there, but it was done rather poorly.
As for the Narrater, Paul Michael, he would blend his voices into the narration and at times I felt like he completely forgot which character he was portraying. He wasn't terrible, and was certainly listenable. But he could have been much more consistent.
Overall, A good book, not great, but good. It won't become anybody's favorite book. Fan's of Dan Brown will more than likely enjoy it though I don't expect anyone to be terribly impressed.
