Difficult to listen to the sections where Humbert Humbert talks about his erotic thoughts and sexual experiences with Lolita.
Clare Quilty's character as his end was so absurd and I just could not take the remaining part of the story seriously.
Quilty scene in the end was so hilarious.
Charlotte Haze was such a tragic character.
I cannot imagine a more fitting narrator than Jeremy Irons for Humbert Humbert.
Audiobook contains little-known short stories on Sherlock Holmes & his adventures with trusty sidekick Watson.
Dr. Watson as he is a complementary character to Holmes.
Elementary my dear Watson
Derek Jacobi narrates the stories so well that I could just imagine the scenes as if they were in a movie or tv series. He does however expend effort on the Southern American accents which do not seem to sit well on his British accent. That is, at times he makes some of the American characters sound drunk. Overall, excellent narration which brings to life the main characters and the stories.
No, the audio version is missing Chapter 1
Chapter 1 as it's not available to download
This Audiobook is a good tool to use to reinforce learning on the topic.
Compelling story on an important global issue. Horowitz uses a modern voice with all the twist and turns of a suspenseful "on the edge of your seat" thriller.
Derek Jacobi is an excellent narrator who brings to life Sherlock Holmes and Watson.
The start of the story as it includes Watson reminiscing on Holmes and it reveals various interesting tidbits which fills in the gap on what happened to both of those main characters as they got on with the years. The chase scene towards the climax was action-filled & hilarious.
Well worth the time and credit spent listening to this wonderful story & talented narration by Derek Jacobi. Anthony Horowitz does justice to Arthur Conan Doyle's characters whilst tackling an important global issue.
Over-simplifies business concepts
No because its too simplistic for someone working in complex and corporate environments,
Good introduction for budding entrepreneurs and small business owners.
Summarises basic business concepts
Although the story has been rated as one of the best books of all time, it was terribly boring.
Scott Brick was the saving grace to this intensely boring and painfully long story.
Yes it's already a movie and much better in that format than on print or audio
It's like reading or listening to Ulysses - difficult to get through in a few sittings. Atlas Shrugged is a long-winded diatribe of Objectivist philosophy in a moralistic tone.
Suspense, horror, exciting
Mina being seduced by Dracula
This is one of the best multicast performances by talented artists in audiobook format.
Very happy listening to this audiobook. Alan Cummings, Tim Curry & the rest of the cast brought back to life (no pun intended) this classic story.
Not necessarily however the performance brought the story to life.
Elijah brought the story to life with his talented voice performance.
Well worth the purchase and time spent listening
Absolutely recommended to people with heavy-duty insomnia.
Yes, Pass Your Driving Test
Certainly put me to sleep and in the most positive way! I have severe insomnia and after 2 nights of listening to this audiobook, it helped me get to sleep.
No however it brings new life to the tale.
This is the first time I purchased an audiobook where Alan Cummings has narrated. I am fascinated with his talent in characterization, voice acting, and overall narration of the entire story. I look forward to more performances by Alan Cummings.
Very happy with this purchase and have already recommended it to friends. Even if I had seen, read and listened to previous performances of Macbeth, this audiobook version was more than worth my time.
