    Poet and essayist Robert Pinsky's translation captures the intensity and passion of the literary masterpiece, and world-renowned actor John Cleese contributes a profound and electrifying performance.

    A User says: "Good Interpretation, Somewhat difficult to follow"
    "Poor audio quality"
    Overall

    The audio quality is very poor. Sounds like it was re-recorded from tape! This made it very difficult to understand. I gave up on it.

    As a man surveys the countryside for the construction of a reservoir, he comes across a stretch of barren farmland leeched of life. An aged survivor of the town tells him the tale of a rural farmer's family and their path to madness and unspeakable horror.

    Micki says: "Horrible narration, ruins a great story."
    "Great story spoiled by poor reading"
    Overall

    This is a great story, but the reading is so badly done -- with almost no emotion -- that the book is totally ruined.

    Story
    (4764)

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Suzanne says: "The scare is in the human nature under stress."
    "Disappointed"
    Overall

    I found it to be overly wordy and too predictable. I got so bored by the 2nd "book" that I stopped listening and probably won't finish it.

    A man accepts an invitation from his best friend - Crawford Tillinghast - after a rift in their friendship regarding Crawford's scientific and metaphysical research, to discover Tillinghast has created a device that awakens sensory abilities long dormant in humans after millions, perhaps billions, of years of evolution, allowing us to see and experience all the worlds around us, previously separated from us by our five senses, and he further discovers that Crawford's invitation has an ulterior motive - revenge.

    Gibsonite says: "Avoid Purchasing!"
    "Difficult to understand"
    Overall

    This is a good story, but I found the audio overdramatized and difficult to understand and listen-to.
