Riveting, moving performances. Wonderful works performed by various groups. If you like theater, you will love these. So well done I feels like I was present at the performance.
I don't understand how one could ding the author himself on his reading. I have had the pleasure to be in the audience twice when R.B. was present. Once to discuss his life, and another at one of his plays. True, the reading is somewhat slow. I listened at 1 1/2 speed and is was quite good. At the end he has an excellent interview.
Very dated. Abridged. Love 1984 . Hated this. Couldn't even finish it.
Jonathan Cecil is miraculously good in this production. Very fine voicing. Hilarious writing. Holds up well over the years
Don't ignore this book because the movie was so bad. Very well narrated, nearly mystical with some overtones of Poe. Loved it.
People don't change. His persecutors could live today. I am not sure, however, that we have a Socrates.
Short enough to listen, but bordering on bizarre. Then again, I am not familiar with Scalzi.
What a great narrator. Made this excellent story come alive. Now enjoying Time Enough for Love, which he also narrated.
Very entertaining and very well read. Better than the dramatizations I've seen. Highly recommended.
I "read" this book over a little over a week. It is a road book with great insights into the culture, history, and politics of China. It is refreshing that the author shares his point of view after much musing as he travels. Rob Gifford is a great reporter and a fine thinker. Highly recommended.
